Posting here for my friend (okayed with her to give out her boys names) who is due with another little boy in about two months. She has three boys already and has run out of names
So far she has
Her DH is from Scotland so they want to add another traditonal Scottish name, middle name not so fussed. Most of the boys middle names are for someone close to them. Their surname is a single syllable starting with S, so she's ruled out James, Finn and most other one syllable names.

I think for the middle I would go more traditional-UK-ish in general than strictly Scottish (not just because I'm running out of Scottish names I know...) like Christopher or Zachary or something like that.
Alastair is my favourite. It is a Scottish form of Alexander.

2 syllables to fit the sibset:

William so then they'll have 2 m endings and 2 n endings

Thanks guys, lots of options there. I also suggested Alastair or even Alexander for baby 3 but was shot down - and apparently every friend in Scotland has a boy named Finn!
I really like a lot of those names, I'm sure it will help them decide, she's very picky!
