Brother for Tristan?

It took us 5 weeks and 6 days to choose a name for DS1 (and even then, I was wobbling) but now DS2 has come along and I'd like to name him a bit quicker! ignores the fact that he's 3 weeks old already

Names so far:

Oscar - love this but we know lots of Oscars already and it's very popular
Theo - I can't reconcile myself (stupidly I know!) to giving him a shortened version of a name, and I'm not a fan of Theodore
Caspian - current favorite, but when I've been subtly sounding it out with a few family members, they've thought it was pretty pretentious and on par with Tarquin
Caspar
Zacariah - not keen on Zac though
Lysander
Silas
And at this point, Baby. It's unique, suits him and it means I don't have to bloody think of another name!

Any suggestions gratefully received or just validation that Caspian is a perfectly acceptable name

I knew a Tristan with a brother called Dominic - think they sound lovely together.

I have a Tristan, his brothers are Tobias, Joshua and Morgan.
I would have chosen Elliot but dh hated it.

Tristan & Magnus
Tristan & Dominic
Tristan & Quentin
Tristan & Caspar

From your list I like Lysander best.

How about: Conrad, Ambrose, Arthur, Quentin

I have a Tristan and on your list I can only stomach Silas, and even then not much. Of those suggested on thread, Elliot is only one I warm to.

I really wanted Raymond for DS.

Maybe Sylvester (Sly?)
Mind, I went to school with a Forest (nn=Frosty).

I know a Tristan with a brother Ethan, maybe a bit too popular compared to your other suggestions though. Think Elliot sounds nice as does Tobias, Quentin, Caspar and Sebastian. Good luck

Oscar from your list.

or Max.

My first was Tristan.

We're planning on Fabian if we have a boy this time.

Just Theo would be lovely
Guy goes well and I like Caspian and Gideon as well as Gilbert and Arthur.

I have twin boys called Tristan and Elyan; both were knights of the round table.

I also like Toby, but as a short version of Tobermory. (?)
