Boy Name for Unexpected #3

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] All,

I am expecting [name_u]Baby[/name_u] #3 at the end of [name_f]May[/name_f]. Husband and I cannot find boy names that we love. We like [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] but are struggling for middle names/aren’t crazy about the name but don’t hate it. I love [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] but DH isn’t a huge fan. Siblings are [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] and [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Anne[/name_f]. (A isn’t a required theme). I am trying to steer clear of super popular names.

I liked:

[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] (compromise, but DH says too long/doesn’t flow)
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Hayes[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m]

Since neither of us are set on a certain first name, we are looking for other options. Any suggestions for either first names or first/middle combos?

Thank you!

I like [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_m]Hayes[/name_m]

Some alternatives
[name_m]Archer[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]
[name_m]Aaron[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Alfred[/name_m] [name_m]Hayes[/name_m]/[name_u]Alfie[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]
[name_m]Jackson[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m]
[name_m]Elijah[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m]
[name_m]Marcus[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m]
[name_m]Caleb[/name_m] [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]
[name_m]Felix[/name_m] [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]
[name_m]Christopher[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m]/[name_m]Hayes[/name_m]
[name_m]Rufus[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m]

I must agree with your husband that [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] does not have the greatest flow. This shouldn’t deter you from using the name you love, but combined with the fact that your husband does not love it, it might be of the table. I like [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Hayes[/name_m] from your list.
Some other suggestions:
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Samuel[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Gabriel[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_u]Emerson[/name_u]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Graham[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Conrad[/name_m]

Other first names:

If you both love [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] I wouldn’t worry about the flow because he will be known as [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] (Last Name) and as long as those names flow nicely, they are the most important. In every day life, we rarely say all our names together. Other suggestions for a first name based on your list of likes…

[name_m]Julian[/name_m] [name_m]Hayes[/name_m]
[name_m]Reuben[/name_m] [name_m]Hayes[/name_m]
[name_m]Jasper[/name_m] [name_m]Hayes[/name_m]
[name_m]Samuel[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Alistair[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Maxwell[/name_m] [name_m]Hayes[/name_m]
[name_m]Benson[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]

I also love the suggestion of [name_m]Marcus[/name_m].

[name_m]Andrew[/name_m] and [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] are both great names!

What about [name_m]Hayes[/name_m] or [name_m]Henry[/name_m] as a first name?

Ugh! Why are boys names so hard!?! We are also expecting surprise baby boy #3 & are having an equally difficult time. We have a list that I like, but don’t love. I’m hoping that when baby is born, he will look like a name & I will just KNOW -that’s what happened with #2… or that all three ultra sound technicians were wrong when they said it’s a boy :stuck_out_tongue:
Having said that, I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] & [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]! I like [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] & think the flow is fine -it’s just a little TH heavy.
Other ideas: use a different version of [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]: [name_m]Thaddeus[/name_m], [name_m]Theophilus[/name_m] (know a 6 year old [name_m]Theophilus[/name_m])
Use another name that has the same meaning as [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]:
[name_m]Mathias[/name_m], [name_m]Mathew[/name_m], [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m], [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m]
Use another royal name like [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]:
[name_m]Edward[/name_m], [name_m]William[/name_m], [name_m]Caspian[/name_m], [name_m]Peter[/name_m],
Names I would like to use but promised hubby I wouldn’t use his cousins’s names:
