Bub boy on the way and we just can't agree on names but have a short list and are after opinions, please put into your order of preference:

Angus
Samuel
Clyde
George
Zac

Other son is Rhys (which I must add was not in my top 20 so don't want to compromise this time). I love Hugh and am hoping hubby will go soft and give in to me at the birth, but this would be very out of character!
Thanks

From your list. I'd say George. Rhys and George go well together.

I do love Hugh though. To fit in with Rhys, you could have the Welsh spelling Huw or Hywel even.
I'm Welsh, my cousin back in Wales has a Rhys and a Rhodri. We also have a Rhys and Owen in the family too.

I like Hugh, Angus and Zac. Clyde is horrible, no offence.

If I just look at your list as is, Angus is my clear pick.  However with brother Rhys I would pick George.
Clyde would be second.  I'm not a fan of Zac.  Angus and Samuel don't excite me with Rhys.

Your pick Hugh goes perfectly. Would Hugo be an option?

I do like the idea of going Welsh with a brother for Rhys.  What about Glyn or Gwylim?
