Our Dd is Imogen and I'm looking for ideas on a boys name- so far my list is Max or Daniel... I don't like anything that ends in an 'a' sound e.g. Noah as it doesn't go with the surname and nothing starting with a T. Likely middle name is Anthony or Michael.I'd love any suggestions!TIA

I think Daniel Anthony would be a lovely choice.

i like Max Michael Lastname. imogen and max. max and imogen... sorry op not much help, am i! i found boys names really hard. i dont mind alex but would alexander be too much of an 'ah' sound on the end? ( lets face it, in aus, most people would probably say it like alexand'uh', as opposed to alexand-er, wouldn't they?)

We have a max, DD was almost Imogen
I wouldn't pick your first name based on the middle name.

I have a Daniel Arthur and I contemplated Imogen for our youngest DD
I really like Daniel as a name. We have come across very few around DS' age (9yo) and being such a classic name, it is never mispronounced, has a couple of nice nicknames and it goes with so many lovely middle names.
Daniel Anthony is lovely.
However, nearly ever Daniel I have met has been full of mischief and a "runner" as a toddler. I actually really enjoy my DS' mischevious side. He is a real sweetheart with a sense of adventure - a very loving and gentle boy.

I love both Daniel and max. classic names that can't be spelt wrong

Biased because I have a Daniel. I think it is a great name, classic but not overdone and suits all ages from baby to senior. My Daniel has always been Daniel, not Dan or Danny.

Big tick to Daniel! But I am biased on that one. I love the name and the nn Dan.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions, i'm definately leaning towards Daniel - now to get DH to agree
