So I think DH and I have come up with a name for baby boy. I can't say that I love the name, but I certainly like it and am sure it will grow on me. The only boy's name that I have ever had very strong feelings about is William which we used on DS.

Baby boy's name is James Arthur. James is for no reason other than just liking it and Arthur is both of our paternal grandfathers names, my uncle/godfather's name and my dad's middle name. It was as close to the regal feeling that William Charles gives as we could get.

So what do you think...do William Charles and James Arthur seem to be in the same category and sound good as brothers?

I think they fit together as sibling names very well. Arthur isn't very common and I really like it.

I think it's a great choice. James Arthur is as strong and classic a name as William Charles. They pair up very well together.

I like it! My kids have very traditional names, too. I think William Charles and James Arthur are perfect together.
