Sibling for Ophelia, Aurora and Gwen

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]!
I’m 3 weeks from my due date so looking for a suggestion pretty soon!
I need a name for my new baby and I’m not sure of the gender yet. It’s always taken me ages to decide on a name but this time longer than expected - I’m getting pretty desperate!
I love long, flowery traditional girls’ names with scope for nicknames but I have no idea where to start if I’m naming a boy. I think I prefer traditional names for boys too but am open to anything! Suggestions for either gender would be great.
I already have three daughters, [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] ‘Lila’ [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] ‘Kitty’ [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] and [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] ‘Rory’ [name_u]Jack[/name_u]. Our family is also very close to my sister in law’s family, and she’s just had a daughter called [name_f]Pandora[/name_f] (although we all call her Pippa) so I would quite like the name to sound nice with that as they’ll be going to the same school in the same year and likely will be quite close.
Any help would be great : )
