    my picks are in bold:

    Ivo Nicholas - doesnt flow very well, maybe Ivo James
    Toussaint James (pronounced like Tucson) - IF ITS PRONOUNCED LIKE TUCSON SPELL IT THAT WAY! save your child a lifetime of grief and having to stop and spell or correct people
    Reed Nicholas - doesnt flow
    Aubyn James (family name) - not bad
    Cabot James - doesnt flow
    Asa Nicholas - doesnt flow
    Barnaby James - fuddy duddy name that is NOT ready for a comeback
    Theodore James "Teddy" - classic, done.
    Atticus John - like James here better
    Bertram John - Bert is a horrible and boring nickname
    Tristram James - DONT PUT A KID THROUGH A LIFETIME OF 'HUH? DID YOU SAY TRISTAN?' Tristan gives the same effect and vibe without causing problems
    Zevon James (rhymes with Devon) - trying to hard to be different, you know like you are trying to spice up Devon
    Finch Nicholas
    Tennyson James "Ten" or "Tenny" - recently used in Hollywood, plus Tenny is a shoe
    Thackeray John (rhymes with Zachary)
    Jolyon Nicholas (JOLE-ion) - spelling and pronounciation horrors
    Ambrose John - no flow
    Peregrine James - i think of the falcon. if i were a kid again id rather you name me Pippin than this fuddy duddy mouthful
    Orlando James "Orly" - seems to be becoming popular. why not Warlow?
    Worthy James (family name) - not bad, usually dont like names that seem to force wealth, self esteem, or achievements on a kid
    Tarquin James - okay, reminds me of Star Wars
    Copeland James (family name) - not bad
    Pryor James - cant see it being used on a child, just a man
    Tavish John - not real life realistic
    Fenwick James "Fen" (family name) - not bad for a olden name
    Hawthorne/Hawthorn James (I like it without the E, dh likes it with) - in this case, people will be expecting the 'e' due to Nathaniel, keep it if you use it but think its too heavy a last name for a kid or adults first name
    Macabee James (family name) - too much of a name especially for a kid
    Banyan James - not bad, sounds like something i cant remember
    Wyeth James - spelling and pronounciation horrors
    Sparrow John - trendy, feminine
    Rushdie James - what is this? and thats what everyone else will think too.

    think im rooting for Banyan

    But then I run into the problem of having a child go by his/her middle name. I'd rather not do that if I can avoid it. I'm less concerned with flow, I guess, than with finding a first name that suits.
