    Traditional, strong, sturdy names that have been around a while?

    Major thank you to Liviajoan for helping identify my husband's naming style.

    My husband likes:

    William
    Michael
    Alexander
    Nathaniel
    Isaac

    His naming style is MUCH different than mine. I do not like top 100 names. The first three are names that we hear a lot around here - family, friends. I HATE the nicknames Will, Mike, Alex and Nate. The only one out of his that I would even consider for a child would be Isaac. I sort of like it, but I don't love it.

    Any suggestions for strong and sturdy boy's names that might go along with my husband's style?

    Do you like any other nicknames for these- Liam, Nathan, Alec, Xander, Anders, Al, Sandy, Santo?

    Other 'traditional' suggestions:

    James
    Benjamin
    Peter*
    Edward*
    Thomas
    Henry
    Arthur*
    Harry
    Albert*
    Reuben*
    Edmund*
    Joseph

    *I don't know where you are, but I believe these are outside the US top 100

    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    I'm not great at this, but a few popped into mind. I have no idea where they are ranked, though:

    Elijah
    Theodore
    Samuel
    Noah (this one is getting popular, I think)
    Andrew
    Adam
    Henry
    Jonah
    Jeremiah (this is one of my faves, as are Nathaniel and William, so maybe he'll like it too!)
    Gregory
    Ansel (not sure this is either of your styles, but it just came to mind for some reason)

    Good luck!
