Archer v Christopher v Marcus v Leonardo v Gavin

Testing out five of our favorites for baby no. 2 and baby boy no. 1. We love Archer (“Archie”), Christopher (“Chris”), Marcus (“Marc”), Leonardo (“Leo”) and Gavin (we have no obvious nickname).

Older sister is Fiona.

Thanks!

ETA: Thanks for all the feedback so far! If it helps, our surname is super Italian, but our coloring and appearance is more English/Irish (for example, daughter is a redhead).

I love [name_u]Archer[/name_u], and [name_m]Christopher[/name_m] would be my second pick. [name_m]Leonardo[/name_m] isn’t my style, and [name_m]Gavin[/name_m] and [name_m]Marcus[/name_m] seem a bit dated to me. That said, I think any of these work.

With [name_f]Fiona[/name_f], I’ll say [name_u]Archer[/name_u] and [name_m]Leonardo[/name_m]! [name_f]Fiona[/name_f], [name_m]Archie[/name_m] and [name_u]Leo[/name_u] sound really good as siblings - they’re all names with a cool trendy feel. [name_u]Chris[/name_u], [name_m]Marc[/name_m] and [name_m]Gavin[/name_m] feel a lot more 70’s-90’s to me and wouldn’t be my preferred choice with [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] (although I would love [name_m]Christopher[/name_m] with a different nickname, like [name_m]Topher[/name_m] or Kit).

I like [name_m]Christopher[/name_m] for you, or [name_m]Marcus[/name_m] - solid and familiar but not super popular

[name_u]Archer[/name_u] or [name_m]Leonardo[/name_m].

I prefer [name_u]Archer[/name_u] to [name_m]Leonardo[/name_m] but [name_u]Leo[/name_u] to [name_m]Archie[/name_m], if that makes sense.

I love [name_u]Archer[/name_u]! Has a cool -er ending with a cute nickname [name_m]Archie[/name_m]. [name_m]Christopher[/name_m] would be my second pick, but probably not for the nickname [name_u]Chris[/name_u].

[name_f]Fiona[/name_f] and [name_m]Archie[/name_m] sound great together to me! Subtly Scottish, but not so strong that you’d need or expect Scottish connections.

[name_m]Christopher[/name_m] or [name_m]Marcus[/name_m] would be my second picks.

I love [name_m]Archie[/name_m] for you, and [name_m]Marcus[/name_m] but I much prefer [name_m]Marcus[/name_m] straight up rather than the nickname of [name_m]Marc[/name_m].
