Brother for Oliver and Henry!

We’re so excited for baby boy number three… but my husband and I have exhausted all the boys names that we agree on!

Our older children are [name_u]Oliver[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] and [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m].

My husband is British, so we want a name that honors his background.

I have a unique name, so I want a name that our child won’t have to explain and spell for people for the rest of their life.

We don’t mind if the name is popular or unique (although we have used names on the popular end of the spectrum in the past :laughing:)

We don’t want a name that is unisex.

Bonus points if there are sweet nickname opportunities!

Possible names we are playing with but aren’t sold on: [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], [name_m]Finnigan[/name_m], [name_u]Logan[/name_u], [name_u]Elliott[/name_u].

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

Love [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], it makes me think of teddy bears and bookstores, so it’s super cozy.

Oliver [name_u]James[/name_u], [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m], and [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m]

O+H+[name_m]Peter[/name_m] [name_m]Joshua[/name_m]

O+H+[name_m]Daniel[/name_m] [name_m]Jonathan[/name_m]

… or [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] or [name_m]William[/name_m] or [name_u]George[/name_u] or [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] or [name_m]David[/name_m] also work too.

I love your sons’ names! They’re amazing!

Here are some ideas:

Theodore (This was my first thought)
[name_u]Percy[/name_u]
[name_m]Simon[/name_m]
[name_m]Thomas[/name_m]
[name_u]Laurence[/name_u]
[name_m]Edward[/name_m]/Edgar
[name_m]Robert[/name_m]
[name_m]Philip[/name_m]
[name_m]Matthew[/name_m]
[name_m]Alexander[/name_m]
[name_u]George[/name_u]
[name_m]William[/name_m]
[name_m]Charles[/name_m]
[name_u]Everett[/name_u]
[name_m]Atticus[/name_m]
[name_m]Alfred[/name_m]
[name_u]Elias[/name_u]
[name_m]Frederick[/name_m]
[name_m]Ronald[/name_m]
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u]

And, in case you want some middle names. I’m assuming that you want to continue with the J initial :slight_smile:

Johnathon/John
[name_m]Joshua[/name_m]
[name_m]Jacob[/name_m]
[name_m]Jeffery[/name_m]
[name_m]Julius[/name_m]

Hi there.

Oliver [name_u]James[/name_u] & [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m] are so lovely! [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], [name_m]Finnegan[/name_m] (I like this spelling) or [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] would all be awesome for a little brother. [name_u]Logan[/name_u] is a little meh for me. It’s just really over done. [name_u]Oliver[/name_u], [name_m]Henry[/name_m] & [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] are popular too, but they’re classic. [name_u]Logan[/name_u] seems modern & over done, which makes it feel trendy.

Sorry for any repeats, but here are a few ideas for #3:

Arthur

Alistair

August

Bennett

Charles

Colin

Desmond

David

Edwin

Edward

Edgar

Frederic

George

Gilbert

Julian

Julius

Louis

Maxwell

Nathaniel

Otis

Peter

Patrick

Philip

Ronan

Samuel

Simon

Sebastian

Sullivan

Theodore

Thomas

William

Winston

Whitman

Hope this helps. :slight_smile:

Louis was the first name that sprang to mind for me with your sons lovely classic names. I’m British and I’d pronounce it LOU-ee, like the little prince. [name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_m]Edward[/name_m], [name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] or [name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] would be amazing.

Thank you for the alternative spelling, I like [name_m]Finnegan[/name_m] so much more!

I love your suggestions for names- thank you!

I adore [name_m]Louis[/name_m], especially the pronunciation that you suggested!

Our dear friends and neighbors just named their son [name_m]Louis[/name_m] with the “[name_m]Lewis[/name_m]” pronunciation, otherwise it would be one of our top picks!

I also like the middle names, thank you!
