Help with second child's name
We have a little boy Donny Fox. Surname starts with G, very common, two syllables. I feel I've created a bit of "situation" with the middle name Fox, as Donny has fox toys, fox clothes, gets fox birthday cards etc. I would like the second child to have a "special" name, too, be it first or middle, even if it is a colour, animal etc. I'm having trouble with order, flow and a suitable match (most likely the last child). I'd thought I throw my lists out there and see if anyone can come up with magical. I REALLY enjoyed the recent list "If you had a baby today..." I'd ultimately like something a little vintagey, different and imaginative. Would be delighted to consider names not on my favourites list. Thanks in advance. Lou.
In no particular order:

With Donny Fox as a brother, I would go with the special name in the middle. I think I would also pick so etching other than another animal but a color doesn't seem special enough. Anchor and Rocket are my favorites from your list for middle names though I think Drummer could also work.
Digby Anchor goes well with Donny Fox if you don't mind the same first initial. Donny and Digby.
Because the middle name is longer than Fox, I like the idea of a shorter first name.
Jem Rocket strikes me as having a nice flow. Donny and Jem.
Ike Drummer is pretty cool. Donny and Ike.
I think my favorite from your list is Ned and I would go with Ned Anchor.
Other ideas ... I love boys names ending in o. Also for middle names, I rather like Jet and Archer
Instead of Lou what about Leo
Hugo DrummerI like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

I can totally relate to all the fox stuff. When my son was very young, he liked to pretend to be a fox. I made up "Jacob Fox" stories for him and included his cousins as animal characters. Now I buy fox things for my grandchildren. I agree that your second just needs an equally special name.
Johnny Moss (I like this one, but it wouldn't be a much fun for your son and Johnny and Donnie

Maple Leif - probably too much. Maple Rafferty. Silver Maple.

First of all, I love Donny Fox. I think its tons of fun and also because Donny could become Don, has the ability to age well.
I would try
Tyler Rocket (saw it above, seconding it because its really cute)
Noah Storm (could be a bit biblical but I think it'd be cool)
Ryan Lupe (wolf)
