Inspire me for DC4

I already have three DS's called Joshua, Tobias and Alexander and am looking for a name for number 4. We haven't found out the sex this time. I like Orlando but with no Italian heritage it would seem a bit strange. I've also considered Nathaniel but according to me sister in law I can't use it as it's on her list for her next one which she isn't even pregnant with yet hmm As for girl names I think the chances of a girl are so slim that I haven't really considered many. Top names for the boys had they been girls were Isabella, Anastasia, Marie, Amelie, Summer, Mia, and Ava. My husband has been no help as he only makes jokey suggestions.
Please give me your best suggestions for either sex as I am struggling to find any I want to consider. My last son took us over a month to agree on the name and I don't want that to happen again this time!

Hi, I'm new round here but I love name threads, so here goes!

I have just the one ankle-biter, a boy who we called Magnus (neither of us has any Nordic background btw so if Orlando fits with your surname, I don't see why you wouldn't use it). Other names on the table at the time were Art (shortened from Arthur which is a family name), Alec, Seb and Jude.

For girls, we had Sophia. I also love the name Freya. Friend of mine has a little girl called Summer, lovely happy name!

Happy pregnancy!

Orlando is great, and I don't think is Italian, so I wouldn't let that put you off.

What about
Arlo

Conrad

Christian, could use Kit as a nn

Leo

Benedict

Louis

Rufus

Miranda

Marianne

Clara

Saskia

Vita

Rosanna

Also love Magnus. Many congratulations on number 4 grin

You can use nathaniel, she has no claim to it. Plus it goes great with other ds names.

Would also suggest:
Lucas
Leon
Rory
Hugh
Sebastian

Second Conrad and Marcus. Agree why not Orlando? Or how about Fabian or Max (longer version for birth certificate?)

How many "they stole my name" threads do you see on her? I'd avoid Nathaniel if you can.

Sorry for the delay in replying.
Unfortunately Sebastian was used as Ds3's middle name otherwise that would probably be what I would go with. Nathaniel was on my list last time, plus Nathan was the name of my mum's first baby that was stillborn so I thought it would be nice to use it. My husband doesn't like Orlando so I can't use it.
