Finally making progess! James _____
So after weeks of going through the same circle with my husband where I suggest a name, he says no, and the only reason he can give is "I just don't like it" (sooooo frustrating to a name-o-holic), we have finally compromised. He gets to choose the first name if our baby is a boy, and I get to choose the middle with no nay-saying from him!
He has staunchly decided on James as a first. Though it isn't a very exciting or unique name I do love the timelessness of it. But now it is my turn to choose the middle, and I'm kinda getting lost. I want a name that is silghtly uncommon, but not necessarily unusual. I don't want a middle that just screams "biblical!" mostly because this is my opportunity to give him a really special name.
Our last name is Ramsbacher, so it is already a lot of name going on there.
Some of the middle names i'm currently floating around are:
James Owen (family name)
James Anderson (family name)
James Gunnink (family name)
Opinions on these names, and any suggestions are very much appreciated!!!Melody and Benjamin

I think a two-syllable name flows best with the one-syllable James and the three-syllable surname. Personally, I think mn's beginning with a consonant would be the most ideal choice with James. From the family names, I would choose James Owen even though the "s" in James runs into vowel mn's. I like James Elliott from the remaining names even though it shares the same issue and the mn is three-syllables. I would avoid any name ending in "r" because of your surname. Instead of Bear, I would pick something with the same meaning like James Orson.
