    I chose Edmund because I generally like the name better and because I think it goes with your sibset better. Leo and Lilly may be a bit too close since the rest of your names don't have overlapping...

    I love Eamon too. I went to college with one. I think it's masculine, handsome, and unique. I tend to go traditional for middle names so I'm thinking Eamon John Mc____.

    I like Patrick but the nn "Pat" has made me take it off my list. I have a cousin Patrick and he is always called Pat. I think it would be hard to get away from that nickname unless you...

    My initial assumption was that it's a Hebrew name so while I would intuitively pronounce it as most others have describred (level without the "el"), I'd be afraid that I was mispronouncing a Hebrew...

    I think it absolutely works as a nickname for Reginald. They also both have "kingly" Latin roots.

    My husband and I have been trying to come up with names that fit those criteria too. Lucas and Marcus were among the favorites. We also tossed around Sebastian, Adrian, and Gabriel. ...

    Wow, all three are great so you can't go wrong. My vote is for August. I just love that name. It's distiguished but more unique, which makes it go really well with your last name. I like Graham...

    I automatically think of Sloane Peterson in Ferris Bueller. I know it's not a contemporary movie but I would consider it a classic and it makes me think of Sloane as only a girl's name. I do like...

    These may not be unique enough for you but Caleb and Elliot came to mind based on your two choices. I love Asher. My husband won't get behind it too. What about Shepard (nn Shep)?

    I will join the masses in voting for William Ellington. It's a handsome name and Ellington adds some originality to William (one of my favorite names but also very popular).

    I agree with others. It is clearly a boy's name so does not sound feminine. It is on the softer side of names but I don't think it's one that would cause teasing.

    I don't think it's too long at all. Leo and Archer are both 2 syllables. Archer just has a few more characters. Tait and Leo go together very well and Archer seems to be the same style to me and...

    Henry is one of my favorites and we are most likely going to name our son Alexander so those two are my faves on your list. Your top three are also among my favorites too, so you're going to have a...

    Thanks. We live in an area with a very small Hispanic population so I don't think of it as a Hispanic name, per se, but the nickname Alex for either Alexander or Alejandro is much of the draw.

    I also thought in my head that it would be pronounced with a long AY sound, or hoped it was pronounced that way (far preferable to ah-drik). I agree with sparrowfinch regarding talking to your...

    Thank you. Well said. That's part of the allure to us. We want a name that works for all phases of life. Plus, a name that works with the ehtnicity challenges. Thanks for the pep talk. :)

    Settling?

    Before even getting married, my husband and I talked about the name Alexander for a future son. We have a Hispanic last night but I'm not Hispanic so we've been trying to come up with a name that...

    I agree with others that if this is the name you truly want, keep trying. But (and I hate to be a nay-sayer), I also know that my husband has not come around to any of the names I like that he...

    In that case, it sounds like you can go with names that are more "ethnic." My husband is hispanic and we have a Spanish surname and I'm mostly Irish so we've been struggling with names. Glad it's a...

    I like Marshall the best of your pics and think it goes well with your sibset. Noah and Logan may be too popular and Tanner strikes me as 90s-ish (now that you pointed it out). I'm not super...

    Peter - agree that it's not standing out compared to your others. Plus, I always think of how it is a slang term for the male parts.

    Are you planning to stay in London? If so, it may be odd to name him London too. I lean toward Sebastian either way but agree that Sebastian London would be a great name.
