What do you think...

Alexander "Xander" Jospeh Blumel

DH and I really like something. We will call him Xander but will name him alexander in case he wants to go by that when he's older.

Honest opinions please

I like that name very cute. I was going to have that as one of my choices till I became hooked on Caidan Lee for my little boy.

I like Xander, but I think Zander would be a really strong unique name and you wouldn't need the Alex part (and with the Z the spelling would be easier)

Well, as the wife to an Alexzander, I love it! For the most part, my DH goes by Alexz (pronounced Alex) or Al for all his high school friends.

I really like Xander too. Or perhaps put a Z in there like my DH and it can be Zander.

Either way it's a great name.

Beautiful name! And boys names are so hard... since you and Dh agree, that's the most wonderful choice, plus I honestly love it!

Great name. Perfect mix of the classic, Alexander, and the modern, Xander. He has several options when he gets older if he decides Xander doesn't work for him - Alexander, Alex, Al, AJ

perfect, perfect, perfect. my name is jacqueline and all my younger life i was a "jackie" but now love using jacqueline. it's also good bec alexander is a timeless name; xander may be a cool, current fad -- he can always go back to alexander (or alex) later. lovely name, good luck!

That sounds like an excellent plan something you like now & something he can grow into. My Mom calls me Shammie...Which is great for a little girl but when I go to work it is nice to use my full name & be the "grown up me".

good luck!
