okay - DS1 is Henry
can't use Sam, Ben, Joe, Thomas, Jack, Jacob - Long form or short due to family conflicts...although these are the track we're heading down.
i like - William (is it too royal with Henry?), Fred, George might be a bit much (too old sounding??)
we're running out of ideas!
Steven, Daniel, Patrick, Arthur, Robert, Andrew, Matthew....
William and Henry are too royal for me. Fred and George are ok with Henry but I think you could do better.
I actually don't mind Henry and William together. They are both really strong masculine names. I also like George and IMO, Georgie is an adorable nn for a baby or toddler.
Sounds like you are looking for a classic boys name?
The first names that came to mind were Andrew and Daniel to go with Henry, which others suggested to.
Of your names, I like Fred or William, but I am not a fan of George.
Other ideas: Peter, Phillip, Mark/Marcus, Aaron, Brian, Eli, Jason
I think William and Henry are too royal because William's brother Harry's real name is Henry. But you know what? Not many people realize that and it probably wouldn't be a big deal.
I love William. And Henry. And pretty much any royal name. Edward, Edmund, Charles, Louis?
charles and theodore would be good fits. I have similar taste to you and I also like leo and miles.
I do think Henry/William and Henry/George are too royal sounding. Not a fan of Fred.
I think Andrew, Daniel or Phillip are solid classic names that sound good with Henry.
Charles was the first thing that came to my mind... Henry and Charlie sounds good together, IMO.
I can also see: Luke, John, Wiliam, George, Wesley...
Miles, Max, Spencer.
William & Henry aren't too royal for me, though.
