Pregnant with number 4 and I don't know the sex. I already have three sons so am struggling for a name this time if it is another boy. So I've gone through the ONS list of names and made a massive list of boys names that I vaguely like. Dh has taken out the ones he dislikes and this is what we are left with. I'm looking for opinions please.

Caspian
Henry
Isaac
Edward
Reuben
Austin
Celeb
Felix
Rowan
Nathaniel
Maximus
Raphael
Isaiah
Casper
Hector
Lorenzo
Orion
Calvin
Lucian
Lucius
Dh also likes Zachariah.

Out of those I would only keep Henry (maybe nn Harry) and Raphael.

Thanks. I already have a Joshua, Tobias and Alexander. Think this baby is going to be nameless for a long time.

With the sibling names I like Edward, Henry, Isaac, Nathaniel, Zachariah or Raphael.

Do you call your boys by their full names or are they josh, Toby & Alex?

If so then a one or two syllable name or shortened name would fit better.

Maximus/max seems to fit more with your other names.

Great list! I like lots of them, especially:
Caspian
Edward
Felix
Nathaniel
Casper
Hector
Orion

I would only use Lorenzo if there was an Italian family background.

With Joshua, Tobias and Alexander

Isaac
Reuben
Nathaniel
Isaiah
Lucius
Zachariah

Others don't fit in my book.

Only like Casper and Lucien from your list. Gorgeous names

I only like Nathaniel (Nat)

At a push,
Maximus (Max)
Edward and
Zachariah (Zac)

With your other boys names in mind, Nathaniel (Nate) & Raphael (Rafi) seems a good fit. Maximus, Lucius, Lucian & Isaiah would also go nicely.

My favourite name off your list is Caper, although I prefer the spelling Caspar. Congrats on the new baby OP.

Rowan
Lorenzo (Enzo)

Edward by a mile.
Then Henry.
Then Rowan and Felix.

Lucius = Mafoy to many people, so it's a no from me. Also like Lorenzo, I wouldn't use it without a connection to Italy.

I like most of the others, except Maximus, Felix, Rowan and Orion.
