Middle name for a boy?

I'm 17 weeks pregnant and husband and I are stuck on a middle name for our baby if it's a boy!

First name 2 syllables starting with an "R", Surname 2 syllables starting with a "D".

We were thinking Theodore. I LOVE Garfield too, but if he turns out ginger or tubby it could go badly!

Only limitations are I don't like chavvy names or biblical names (sorry if anyone finds that offensive- couldn't think of a better way to put it).

Any suggestions welcome!

It's really difficult to make any suggestions without knowing what you define as "chavvy".

I won't be upset or offended or say anything nasty if you do say a name I don't like, just looking for suggestions! Where I live we get a lot of Americas Next Top Model Wannabe names like Jenassica/Adrianna/Shandi/Tocara/Monique kind of names, usually with ridiculous spellings! (obviously those are girls names!)

Can we know the first name please? It would help.

Robin or Rufus!

Like Theodore but not Garfield. I like biblical so struggling slightly but how about Jake or Max(well/imillion as you wish). I think maybe a single syllable would work?

Maxwell is nice smile

I just don't like overtly biblical names (not being religious) so the Noah/Elijah/Jacob/Levi/Gideons of the world are out, but those that are more common and more loosely related are fine smile

I think that Rufus Garfield is fantastic tbh.

Not really into family names either! (and ours are a bit dull!)
