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

( lets face it, in aus, most people would probably say it like alexand'uh', as opposed to alexand-er, wouldn't they?)

I have a Daniel Arthur and I contemplated Imogen for our youngest DD  biggrin.gif

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.

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.
