So life is stressful right now. I'm heavily pregnant, will be moving house soon, have two kids at home on summer holidays and they're driving me nuts and now DH decides he doesn't like the names Jarvis or Kit. Plus it'll be 37 degrees on Tuesday.

Can you please name my third son? Pick just one name that you would think is absolutely perfect with his brother's names of Felix and Theodore.

Parameters:
- Nothing in the top ten (I know Theo and Felix are popular in the UK - not so here in Australia)
- looking for something quirky but familiar - nothing predictable like William or Sebastian
- Use Jarvis and Kit as your guide

Just one name. If we end up going with it, I'll send you a present all the way from Australia. I have 8 weeks until baby son #3 is born - please help! smile

Oh bum I opened the thread thinking Theodore! But you've already got there. I like James too.

Keir or Owen.
My two top choices for my own son, but I was outvoted and went for Ben instead.

I have a theo and his brothers are

Oscar reuben

Dylan lucas and rudi arlo.

Felix was also on our list!

I prefer Nathaniel shortened to 'Nat'. Sounds cooler. Already mentioned but Arlo, Milo and Keir are also super cool and go well with your sons names. Also agree with Kit. Your husband may come around - my husband was never on board with my preferred name for our son, then when he was born decided he liked it and it suited him!
Good luck!

It's got to be Benedict, hasn't it? Felix means lucky or successful, Theodore means gift of God, and Benedict means blessed.
Other possibilities might be Lucius/Lucian (light) or Anand (joy - Hindi/Sanskrit) or Asher (lucky/blessed - Hebrew) or Casimir (peaceful leader - Slavic).
