We are trying to decide between Bradley and Alexander for DS#2. I don't mind popular names as long as they are not trendy. DS#1 is Samuel, but we call him Sam. Both DH and I have very common traditional names and we use 1-syllable nicknames. Our last name is relatively common and two syllables (think "Merit"). We are big nickname users, so the baby will likely end up being Brad or Alex/Zander. We have already decided on the middle name, Titus, as it was my great-grandfathers name and we both love it.
So, the choices are:
1. Bradley "Brad" Titus
2. Alexander "Alex" Titus
Angel babies: 9/19/07, 10/08/09, 1/05/11
Samuel and Alexander are both classic names for boys.
My vote goes to Alexander. :)
Alexander times 1000X
Alexander and Samuel go together as a sib set
Alexander and Bradley, do not.
Love Titus with Alexander, but hate it with Bradley.
Love Alex or Xander (spelled this way) for a NN.
another vote for Alexander.
and as a side note, Titus is in my top 3 names for boys - seriously love it :) (too bad DH doesn't :()
A tough one!
I think Alexander goes with Samuel better.
Yet, Bradley Titus seems to flow better phonetically.
Haha, sorry, I'm not much of a help.
