Either William or Alexander and I like them equally.
I dislike Lachlan immensely.

I personally dislike James a lot, and William a bit, but Alexander is an awesome name (see sig).  Out of your choices, I would go with Lachlan Alexander.

All 3 are great names but I would go with Alexander as the other 2 seem more popular in my area.

Can't go wrong - four of my favourite boys names (including James).

Lachlan Alexander and Alexander James wod probably be my picks.

I'd go with Alexander Lachlan - I may be biased about Alexander mind you. I also love the name Lachlan but loathe the nickname Lachie.

I love William as a middle name but not as a first name

What a refreshing change to have to choose between four usable names. My preference would be William James or Alexander James.

William Alexander

I like Lachlan Alexander and William Alexander equally.  Partial to NN Will, don't mind Lachie.

Alexander would be my favourite first name of the three options by a little bit.  

Alexander William sounds good.   (I'd never choose James because its prolificness drives me crazy. My problem, I know.)

OK, I'm choosing William Alexander.

All lovely names in my opinion!
I don't particularly like the NN Lachie though so I think my favourite would be William Alexander.

I know a very very nsughty lachlan. He is the first thing thst jumps to mind when I hear the name. I do t know any other lschlans but I do believe it to be quite a popular name. That would also put me off. I yjink my favorite id William.

I think Alexander is too long to be a middle name. I would either use it as a first name or drop it.

I have a Lachlan/Lachie. I still love the name, but wish I knew how popular it was before I used it. We didn't know any! He has been one of 4 in a class.

Having said that, all those names are popular.
