OMG yet another boy! Name help please.

So we found out this morning we're having our third boy. I'm so pleased he's gorgeous and healthy although I must have wanted a girl a little more than I had thought... still processing how I feel.

So this leads me to names!

We already have a Felix and a Theodore and I have the following list:

Augustin (Gus)
Reuben
Christopher (Kit)
Otto (can I have an Otto and a Theo though?)

These are all fabulous with the last name, which is notoriously difficult to work with.

I also really love Ari but the last name ends in the ee sound and I'm not sure about a name that sounds like Ari Luckee.

Do you have more suggestions for me?

I can't have: Charlie, Oscar, John, Hugo, Sebastian, Julian, Christian, Julius or Luca.

ruben or christopher but wouldn't shorten it to kit.

I like Reuben and Christopher best from your list (not so keen on Augustin, and I think Otto and Theo might be a bit much).

Sounds like you like generally more unusual but still traditional names

How about Timothy, Patrick, Richard, David, Nicholas, Gabriel, Matthew, Quentin, Laurence, Edmond?

I love Gus. DS is Fergus because, although I like Augustus, it is a little bit posh sounding for our tastes smile

I also like Reuben. Otto is a bit much with Theo imho and whilst Kit is lovely, I do find Christopher a bit traditional/dull compared to your other names.

Other suggestions. Gabriel. Nathaniel. Barnaby. Dominic. Dexter. Noah

What about just August? Love them all but you pretty much have our list there apart from Reuben.

Congrats! You'll soon get your head around it and not want to change a thing once he is here!
I love your sons' names. One is my son's name with a middle name from your list and I would have had Felix if we had had another boy. You have great taste!
I really like your list and don't really see why you can't have Otto.

Other names i had on my list (I'm trying hard to remember!)
Benedict ( loved Ned until I googled it and found it was a very derogatory term in Scotland. Oops!)
Alistair
Laurence (Laurie)
Willfred
Xavier

I also love Reuben,. but not much on Otto.

MortaIWombat Sat 22-Sep-12 13:41:04

Augustin or Christopher, I think. Keep the classical theme going. grin

outtolunchagain Sat 22-Sep-12 14:10:52

I also have three boys plus a dog ( called Ottogrin)
I was the same;thrilled to have my three boys but a little sad as well , I that it was just that there had always been the possibility of a girl IYSWIM and as no.3 was our last that possibility was gone and I was always going to be the mother of boys.It soon passes though and boys are great fun.

Love Kit,how about Bartholomew(Bartie for short)also like Gabriel or Quentin
