Need A Uncommon Name For Our 5th BOY!

Hi there my husband and I have had 4 boys in a span of 5 years and now we’re due with our 5th! I chose my first couples names from the 1890 time period and was inspired by the “Hello [name_f]Dolly[/name_f]” movie for two of them. All of their names have 2 syllables and exactly 7 letters.

Our Boys names are:
[name_m]Harland[/name_m]
Ephrome (pronounced ef-rum, the “e” is the same as in elephant)
[name_m]Ambrose[/name_m]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m]

I am stumped on finding a name for our 5th. I like uncommon names and want it to go along with the other boys names. I do care about meanings and don’t want something that also belonged to someone horrible in history lol, or a meaning that is negative.

Below are the names I gravitate towards for our 5th. I am open to changing the spelling to make it 7 letters. I know not all of these have 2 syllables but at this point i’m running out of ideas.What do you think about these names, and do you have any other suggestions? I would love to hear any handsome and swoon worthy uncommon names you think will work. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

Names We’ve Considered:
[name_u]Bennett[/name_u]
[name_m]Brentley[/name_m]
Brayton
[name_u]Brighton[/name_u]
Bristowe
[name_f]Arlowe[/name_f]
Everowe
[name_u]Everest[/name_u]
[name_u]Everett[/name_u]
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]
[name_m]Coleson[/name_m]
[name_u]Easton[/name_u]
[name_m]Weston[/name_m]

Wow congrats on #5! There are already so many great suggestions but here’s a few more I didn’t see:

[name_u]Spencer[/name_u]
[name_m]Winston[/name_m]

Harland
Ephrome
[name_m]Ambrose[/name_m]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m]
&

Brigdon
[name_u]Brighton[/name_u]
[name_u]Bennett[/name_u]
[name_m]Shepard[/name_m]
[name_u]August[/name_u]
[name_m]Desmond[/name_m]
Wescott
[name_m]Ellwood[/name_m]
[name_u]Merritt[/name_u]
[name_m]Pierson[/name_m]
[name_m]Redmond[/name_m]
[name_m]Riordan[/name_m]
[name_m]Royston[/name_m]
[name_u]Tristan[/name_u]
[name_m]Whitman[/name_m]

Your boys have lovely names! From your list I like [name_u]Bennett[/name_u], [name_u]Brighton[/name_u], [name_u]Everett[/name_u] and [name_m]Coleson[/name_m].
Some more ideas:
[name_m]Vaughan[/name_m]
[name_m]Ralston[/name_m]
[name_m]Manfred[/name_m]
[name_m]Beauden[/name_m]
[name_u]Britton[/name_u]
[name_u]Windsor[/name_u]
[name_u]Spencer[/name_u]
[name_m]Barclay[/name_m]
[name_m]Willard[/name_m]

Not 7 letters:
[name_m]Manley[/name_m]
[name_m]Ayrton[/name_m]
[name_m]Junior[/name_m]
[name_u]Lennox[/name_u]

I love [name_u]Everett[/name_u], Saywer, and [name_m]Weston[/name_m]
More ideas:
[name_u]Grayson[/name_u]
[name_u]Sparrow[/name_u]
[name_m]Raymond[/name_m]
[name_u]Finnley[/name_u]
[name_m]Trenton[/name_m]
[name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]
[name_m]Forrest[/name_m]

I would drop the 7 letters “requirement.” That’s the type of thing no one notices, and it would open up the pool of possible names. Names like Bristowe and Everowe feel very contrived. I would keep looking.

Thank you for the suggestions. I’ve never heard of the name Llwelynn before. Definitely different. I will add some of them to my list. Thanks for the help!
