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

Also like previous suggestions of Gil short for Gilbert, and Nat short for Nathaniel.

Love Benedict (nn Ned). Nathaniel means 'gift from God" so the same as Theodore.

Help - Struan is a traditional name in my family "clan" but although I have two boys, I couldn't get my OH to even consider it sad
