    These names make my heart beat a little faster:
    Tarquin James (I met a real life Tarquin, he was in his 40s, and a bit of a silver fox, made me love the name more!)
    Ambrose John
    Aubyn James (Prefur Auben, or Alben but they are all strong, handsome names, and family connections always deserve extra points)
    Peregrine James - Pip is so cute!
    Tennyson James
    Reed Nicholas
    Wyeth James

    These, not so much:

    I'm an English graduate too and I love love LOVE Peregrine. Here in the UK the usual nn is 'Pen' which I think is a nice graduation into adulthood from Pip too. Aubyn James is definitely a close second for me. And Bertram would be on my list too as I love the nn Bertie which is, again, the usual over here. X
