I'm sure no.3 is a boy but won't find out for a couple of weeks.Found it really hard the last 2 times to come up with boys names but v happy with Rufus and John(known as Johnny).Want to avoid top 10 type names or anything currently fashionable that could date.Secretly like Orlando but too many Waitrose connotations and don't think I could get away with calling it out in a playground etc!Surname is easy to match with most names..any suggestions?

I don't think you need to match Rufus and John, as those two names themselves don't match IMO.

There's nothing wrong with that, sibling names don't need to match.

I think most of the most popular boys names tend not to date, apart from the nickname versions (Charlie, Freddie etc), but names out of the top 10 that fit your criteria could be:

Sebastian
Alexander
Edward
Louis
Gabriel
Daniel
