Hi all,

I have been browsing through the "Beautiful and Classic Girls Names" thread and nodding my head at just about every name mentioned. Our top choices for a girl are each mentioned several times.

Anyway, what would you consider the male equivalents of these names?

I have a William and I see names like James, Charles, Edward (all the royal names!) fitting in there... what else would you suggest?

The ones I like, my favourites:

Henry
Arthur
John
Isaac
Benjamin
Jonathan
Patrick
August
Daniel
Joel
Alexander
Vincent
Edmund
Zachary
Michael
Luke
Anthony

I am really REALLY unsure of where classic ends and niche market begins for Bible names. I think I am safe with the ones that got mentioned above? Tentatively would add:
Jesse
Levi
Tobias
Reuben
Gabriel

EDIT: Changed some things around because I'm indecisive like that.

Well I have a Charles! So obviously I would include that name, I also have a Henry......although I actually prefer the French spelling Henri .....I just think it "looks" nicer, even if people don't pronounce it the French way, kind of "on- ree".....but DH objected so we stuck with the English spelling.....I would also include:

Daniel
Gabriel
Elias
Nicholas
Oscar
Hugo

Also (but these are "out there" and would subject them to teasing I reckon, in Australia)

Peregrine
Pierre
Giacomo

Boys names are hard I think.....
