Ok, so I've had lots of feedback on my 2 possible girl names Olive or Isla (which seems to be pretty split so no closer to a decision there) but what about if its a boy - the only ones me and my partner agree on so far are:
- Harrison
- Max
- Archer
- Henry

Our first son is Xander...any suggestions???

I really like Xander and Max, but my concern is.. if you have a third child will you be under pressure to put an X? silly I know but that was my first thought.

With that said I think Xander & Harrison are the best pairing.

ETA suggestions

Xander and Sebastian
Xander and Leo
Xander and Mason
Xander and Riley
Xander and Steen
Xander and Griffin
Xander and Marcus

Love Harrison, Max and Archer. You'll be winning on any of them original.gif Max is my fave though

I really love Henry and Max.

I like Harrison and Archer but worry they will date because they seem to be in a popularity spike. I still like them though.

I think I'd go with Max.

I love Harrison, Archer and Henry but I think something more nicknamey sounds better with Xander because Xander is very nicknamey for me. Just Harry or Archie would be better.

Max is ok as a nickname only to Maxwell, Maximus, Maximilian etc but I think just Max goes better with Xander than any of these or any of the other names you have.

So with Xander, Max is my pick.

Henry gets my vote.
I like Max, but don't like how both the names then have an x in them - makes it look like you are trying to make a point. And Xander and Archer sound quite similar to me...
Harrison is NMS.

Thanks for the feedback so far...with our first we actually debated over the use of Archer and Harrison for a long time - each would be known as Archie or Harry.

But now given Xander, I think we need to discount Archer as I agree the 2 'er' names does not bode well!

Keey your feedback coming though!

I always choose Henry (love the name SO much) but in this instance I don't see it as a good fit with Xander. I think you need to go with something that has a bit more spunk. Max is a good choice, or something like Hugo?

I like both Harrison and Max.

Max and Henry are clear faves for me!

I only like Henry from your list. I agree with PPs that just Harry is nicer than Harrison. I don't like Archer or Max (or any of the Max- variants at all) and wouldn't use two names with predominant Xs in a sibset.
