Boys name for 3rd child

Due in a few weeks, we have our girls name chosen but are struggling to find something that we love as much for a boy.

DD is [name_f]Ettie[/name_f] and DS is [name_u]Bodhi[/name_u] ([name_u]Bo[/name_u]) so something that works with both of those. We knew that these were ‘the name’ straight away so finding another one is quite hard!

My current favourite is [name_u]Amos[/name_u], but my OH prefers [name_m]Otis[/name_m], but I’m not sure it sounds right with the others!

Other names I love but have been vetoed are [name_m]Caspian[/name_m], [name_u]Idris[/name_u] and [name_m]Felix[/name_m]

Welcome to Nameberry! I can see your concern about [name_m]Otis[/name_m]–I prefer it to [name_u]Amos[/name_u] generally, but it maybe overlaps a little too much with your big kids’ names (which are lovely, by the way!). I wonder if you might like:



Amos is an intriguing choice!

Its too bad DH doesnt like [name_u]Amos[/name_u]

Etti, [name_u]Bodhi[/name_u], _____:


Ettie, [name_u]Bodhi[/name_u] and …



I love [name_m]Otis[/name_m], [name_m]Felix[/name_m] and [name_m]Caspian[/name_m]. I do know what you mean about [name_m]Otis[/name_m] being too similar to [name_f]Ettie[/name_f] though. [name_u]Idris[/name_u] is also really cool. [name_m]How[/name_m] about:


Thanks for the replies :slight_smile:

I’m not sure that he dislikes [name_u]Amos[/name_u], he just definitely prefers [name_m]Otis[/name_m]. I feel like I had the final decision on both of the others so don’t want to steamroll him into it! I think it’s the meaning of [name_u]Amos[/name_u] I really like too (more than [name_m]Otis[/name_m])

Got some really great suggestions to look through here, immediately [name_u]Axel[/name_u], [name_m]Casper[/name_m]/Jasper, [name_m]Orran[/name_m], [name_u]Jem[/name_u] and [name_m]Indio[/name_m]

[name_u]Atlas[/name_u] was considered but we felt it might be too big of a name for a little person! And lots of others we already know little ones with!

Would hubby prefer [name_m]Amias[/name_m]?

either [name_m]Otis[/name_m] or [name_u]Amos[/name_u] are my favorites of yours. I think they both work :slightly_smiling_face:

Amos and [name_m]Otis[/name_m] both great names. I do prefer [name_m]Otis[/name_m]. Naming your second of same gender is always hard because all names seem stale second time around.

Yes, [name_m]Amias[/name_m] is lovely. [name_f]My[/name_f] nephew is [name_u]Elias[/name_u] though, too similar?

I think that’s it @MerylP, we were so in love with our first name nothing else matches up! Not helping that the girls name we have chosen for this baby is beautiful, so much so that I’m going to be really sad if we don’t get to use it.

We have added [name_u]Axel[/name_u] NN [name_m]Ace[/name_m] to our list, one we both really like and I feel it sits well with both of the other names

Thanks everyone :heart:

Axel love this name!

Axel has the same feel to me as [name_u]Bodhi[/name_u], perfect match. I also think [name_u]Zeke[/name_u] (suggested above) is amazing with [name_f]Ettie[/name_f] and [name_u]Bodhi[/name_u].

How does one pronounce [name_u]Amos[/name_u]? Is it ay-MISS or ay-MOHS?

Would you be seeing a lot of this cousin?

Yes, the more I think about [name_u]Axel[/name_u], the more I like it.

Amos is ay-mohs (so could NN [name_m]Moss[/name_m] which I think is cute). I’m in the UK though so don’t know if a different pronunciation in the US

Zeke is also very cool

We don’t see physically much as we are the other side of the country, but we are very close and talk often. He is a big part of our lives

Oh, that would make it difficult then.

I love the name [name_u]Axel[/name_u]… could be bias as its my sons name… hahaha we are currently figuring out a sibling name…
