Jack. I like Jacob, but I love Jack, and I quite strongly dislike (okay, hate) Jake. It just doesn't sound appealing to me at all.
Samuel. At the moment. I adore Daniel, and in general, that's probably my favorite of the two, but I like Samuel for a FN more, and Daniel for a MN.
Alexander. I like the feel of Adam, and the ties I have to it (my best friend in high school was an Adam), but I prefer Alexander for a name I would actually use (plus, Jack, Samuel, and Alexander would be fab for brothers!).
Freddie. LOVE Freddie; don't see the appeal of Alfie. I would use Alfred, just to get to Freddie, haha.
Matthew. I love Joseph, but I like Matthew much more.
Charlie! The only Connor I've known is frankly awful, so I can't even consider it. I love Charlie, though; Charles nn Charlie is on my top 10.
Isaac. I like Oliver, but I don't love it. And I've really been loving Isaac lately! I love the Biblical namesake, and the meaning! Plus, Isaac's just a really cool, really fun name.
Thomas. Harry just seems too nicknamey for me. I like Henry or Harrison much more.
Russell. I think. It's a family name that I've always liked as a middle, but I like Reuben, too (probably because my mom loves Reuben sandwiches, haha. And they're totally not just a Canadian thing.
William. I like Nathan better for a FN; William seems sort of boring up front to me, but I love William in general--it's so classic and handsome and regal. Such a lovely name. And it goes so well with some of the others--Jack, Samuel, Alexander, Freddie/Frederick, Thomas, Russell, William, Isaac... I really love them all together.Lise

Jack or Jake/Jacob - Jacob, by a long way. I find the name Jack is sooooo dull. I’ve never understood its popularity.
Samuelor Daniel - Samuel
Alexander or Adam - Love both of these names, but Adam is a little more unexpected, so it just wins
Alfie or Freddie - I’m not keen on either, but Freddie just has the edge (I know a cat called Alfie, so I find it hard to picture on a person!)
Matthew or Joseph - Tough one. Voting for Joseph, but only because I know a lot of Matt’s
Charlie or Connor - Connor, although it’s not my favourite on the list
Oliver or Isaac - Isaac
Harry or Thomas - Thomas
Reuben or Russell - Russell
Nathan or William - William, but I really like Nathan too.
