Need help with first name for MN Edwin

Wanting to use [name]Edwin[/name] as a MN for baby boy #2 as it’s a family name. Big brother is [name]Aaron[/name] [name]James[/name] (also a family MN.)

  1. We prefer names that carry some kind of strong character meaning.
  2. [name]Don[/name]'t want anything too popular that will cause him to be one of many kids with the same name when he hits Kindergarten.
  3. Would also like to avoid creating a pattern of a two-syllable names ending with “n” given the purported MN and older sibling…

Any ideas?

Some ideas:

[name]Matthew[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] (“Gift of God”); 2011 popularity #12 (maybe too popular)
[name]Daniel[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] (“God is my judge”); 2011 popularity #266
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] (“Told by God”); 2011 popularity #26
[name]Zachary[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] (“the [name]Lord[/name] has remembered”); 2011 popularity #64

[name]Victor[/name] [name]Edwin[/name]
[name]Miles[/name] [name]Edwin[/name]
[name]Isaac[/name] [name]Edwin[/name]
[name]Noel[/name] [name]Edwin[/name]
[name]Felix[/name] [name]Edwin[/name]

[name]Nicholas[/name]
[name]Bartholomew[/name]
[name]Jared[/name]
[name]Lucas[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name]
[name]Oliver[/name]

Thanks for everyone’s input thus far! I like how many of them sound, but a lot of these suggestions are already the name of a friend or family member, or the child thereof… (Joshua, Matthew, Samuel, Zachary, Isaac, Nicholas, Lucas, Bennett…) That’s what makes this so hard!!! :stuck_out_tongue:
