Name baby brother to Emilia and Teddy

Please help us name baby brother! Sister Emilia and brother Theodore “Teddy” are excited. Names we like but aren’t sold on:

Miles/Myles
Henry/Hank
Callahan/Cal
Beau/Bo/Bowen
Maxwell/Max

We like familiar names that are easily recognizable but not so overdone that there’s already 10 of them in each of their classes. Middle name will likely be Peter. I gravitate towards a formal name with a shorter cuter nn available.

Can you help us?! I’m due in 3 weeks and baby still very nameless.

I like Henry and Callahan but Henry is especially popular and as a pair with Theodore.

Otherwise how about:

Jude
Caspar / Casper
Jasper
Alexander “Xander”
Sebastian or Bastien “Seb”, “Bash”, “Bassy” etc
Darcy
Ellington
Rafferty
Fletcher
Ronan
Hugo
Wesley
Felix
Benedict
Griffin
Gavin
Julian
Stellan
Willoughby
Ambrose
Callum
Oliver
Simon
Harris

I’m partial to [name_u]Maxwell[/name_u] (my son’s name!) and [name_u]Miles[/name_u] (on our future list) in general. With [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], though, I like the fullness of [name_u]Maxwell[/name_u] and the nickname opportunities. As you mentioned, I think I’d opt for something longer/more formal with intuitive nicknames like your other two kids (this is my personal favorite naming style too!).

Other ideas:

[name_u]August[/name_u] (Auggie/Gus)
[name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] (Ben/Benny)
[name_m]Calvin[/name_m] (Cal)
[name_m]Cormac[/name_m] (Mac)
[name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] (Nat/Nate)
[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] (Sully)
[name_u]Wesley[/name_u] (Wes/Wells)

I love [name_u]Callahan[/name_u] as a brother to [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]. Other suggestions:

[name_u]Archer[/name_u] / [name_m]Archie[/name_m]
Cameron/ [name_u]Cam[/name_u]
Donovan/ [name_u]Donnie[/name_u] or [name_u]Van[/name_u]
[name_u]Jackson[/name_u] / [name_u]Jack[/name_u]
[name_u]Montgomery[/name_u] / [name_u]Monty[/name_u]
[name_u]Remington[/name_u] / [name_u]Remi[/name_u]

[name_f]Emilia[/name_f] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] are both names with history but that hold their own weight on modern lists. Others in this vein could be (without being sure if you want to stick to the tri-syllabic of his siblings or not):
Less than three syllables:
Vincent/Vinnie
Duncan/ “Dunk” has always been a cute nickname for this IMO.
Carlisle/ [name_m]Carl[/name_m] or “Lyle”
Silas/ (not so much for this one but “Silly” could be a fun/quirky option)
Henry/Hank
Three syllables:
Reynaldo/Rey
Abraham/Abe or “Hammie” in his younger years
Raphael/Ralph
Anderson/Andy
Anthony/Tony
Bastian/ not so much for this one either.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps! [name_u]Callahan[/name_u] is probably my favorite out of the ones you listed!
