Help! Middle name for Alexander

We are expecting our first baby soon. We’ve picked [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] as the first name, but are struggling to agree on a middle name. Some options we have are [name_m]Frederick[/name_m], [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] and [name_m]Jacob[/name_m], but none of these feel right to me. I love classic and timeless names, but don’t want something totally boring especially as [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] is so common. Our last name is Tolley so I’d like to avoid ie/y endings as well. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

How about [name_m]Jago[/name_m] (JAY-go), the Cornish form of [name_m]Jacob[/name_m]? [name_m]Classic[/name_m] but also cool and a little quirky. I love it :heart_eyes:
