Please help name DS3!

Have name changed because this is obviously very outing!

DSs are called Theodore and Felix.
Please tell me what DS3’s name should be!

We have a very common surname, so nothing too popular (I know Theodore is top 50, but luckily not many around here) This is genuinely an issue - DH and his brother both had boys in their class at school with the exact same first name/last name as them!

Our surname also means that any classic/older name already ‘belongs’ to someone. E.g Thomas X is the plumber, Dave X is the neighbour, John X is at least 4 of DH’s cousins, etc. So we’d love a name that doesn’t already conjure up the image of someone else if possible.

So any ideas?
Thanks

If DD was a boy I was going to call her Thatcher.

I also like:

Thanks for lots of suggestions. Jasper or Casper are my favourites, but DH doesn’t like them.
Also like Barnaby, but sounds a little odd with our surname.

I really like Oscar (DS2 was nearly Oscar) but a few people said it was a too odd couple/pet-like with Felix! Perhaps we’ve sufficiently watered it down now and could get away with it?
