Help required for naming baby brother to Alexander Thomas and Elizabeth Rose.... Birth is rapidly approaching and we can't settle on a name we both like! Prefer traditional names and not so keen on shortened versions.
Thanks!!!

Given that both Elizabeth and Alexander are longish conservative names  i would opt for something in same vein.

Not neccesarily 4 syllables - but something like George seems out of place short.


Sebastian
Oliver
Matthew
Samuel
Joshua
Jeremy
William
Joseph
Nicholas
Christopher
