Can you please help my husband and I agree on a boy's name we would both like? We're not pregnant but TTC.
Our DD is Rosemary and we want something to match it.
My husband has okay'd
But has refused
Edward (thanks Twilight, even though my grandfather is called this)
Now the names he has approved don't jump out at me hugely. I want something 'old world' but not so old world people will think he's going on 90.
Any suggestion would be great thanks!

I've got a friend who wants to call her son Edwin, but I think it might be a bit old mannish.
Call him Henry and use Harry as the nickname, like Prince harry does. Win win then!

I second Marcus. Others:

Harry - nice
Owen - goes great
Thomas - nice
James - love it

Darcy Nathan or Nathaniel
It depends what your last name is too, sometimes the first name just doesn't go with a surname.

Love Harry and Owen out of your names. James is too overdone.

Christian, Edward, Sebastian, Dominic, Louis, Arthur, Martin
I like Owen from your list as well
Edited because when I post from my iPhone crazy things happen to my line spacing :/

I know siblings Rosemary and Gideon. Pretty good sibset?

I like Harry as well but not as much as J, T or O

My first thought was Henry! D'oh...
Thomas or James would go really well with Rosemary, too! I don't know if you call her a nickname but Rosie and Jimmy is kind of cute!
