    sibling name for Alexander?

    We are struggling with a name for our baby boy expected this November. His brother's name is Alexander, and we call him Lex. We are considering:

    Niko/Nikolas: do you like Niko? Would you spell it Niko or Nico? and Nikolas or Nicholas?
    Max/Maxim/Maximilian: which version for the full name?
    Rowan
    Everett
    other suggestions?

    middle name will be Vietnamese, and last name is Pham.

    Nicholas nn Nico would be a wonderful sibling for Alexander. Maximilian nn Max has the same strong and masculine vibe as Lex.

    From your suggestions, I like Everett... Nikolas would often be misspelled... Rowan seems to have gone to the girls... Although I like Maxim, Maxim Pham rhymes. I'd stay away from first names ending with an M or F. I'd also steer clear of 1 syllable first names like Max, as your surname is 1 syllable... it's choppy.
    Alexander and...

    I like Nikolas, Maximus, Titus, Ariston, Cassius or Claudius.

    Niko/Nikolas: My son's nickname is Nico, short for Dominic. The C spelling just looks nicer - use Nicholas nn Nico because Nikolas is more likely to have spelling problems.
    Max/Maxim/Maximilian: I like Max but Maxim is a lad's mag and Maximilian is just too much for me. My favourite long form is Maxwell.
    Rowan: I like this but I'm hearing it more on girls so if that bothers you cross it off
    Everett: I like this too.
    My two bundles of love, Dominic Joseph and Tabitha Faye
