Name for fourth boy!

DS4 due imminently.

We already have Rufus, Maxim (Max) and Ivo.

We’re a bit stumped this time! Names we like but don’t feel we can use include:

James — too many in the family/friend circle already
Jago — too close to Ivo?
Otto — ditto
Magnus — too close to Rufus and/or Maxim
Wilfrid (Wilf) — husband not too keen
Yann — bit too “continental”?
Henry — friend’s son
Dashiell — bit too “out there”?

We also quite like Samson... not 100% on it though.

Any more ideas or feedback please?

I like Dashiell.
I suggest: Ezekiel nn Zeke.

Felix

I do like Zeke... not too sure about Ezekiel, but it could grow on me, thanks!

Felix has also been discussed but belongs to a family pet, unfortunately. It feels like so many good names are taken this time round sad

Oh I have 4 boys and would have definitely used Dashiell had I had a 5th, it’s a brilliant name - not too out there at all, very cool and suits all ages.

Please use it for me 🤣

I really like Wilf!

I also love,

Idris
Gus
Zac

However I am beginning to favour older retro sounding names like

Peter
Steve
Lee
Stuart

Just to add I hang around the baby name board and my own dcs are teens!

My tastes have changed since I named my own but I don't regret it. They just 'are' their names now.

I agree that Magnus is too close to Rufus. I’d suggest Linus, but I think it has the same problem.

Possibilities that spring to mind:
Alec, Dominic, Hugh, Jasper, Jonathan (Jonty), Niall

James - nice name but dull compared to your other kids
Jago - yes too close to Ivo
Otto - very zeitgeisty and close to Ivo
Magnus - like it but agree too close to Rufus and/or Maxim
Wilfrid (Wilf) - yes quite nice
Yann - bit continental
Henry - nice. What about Henrik? Bit cooler and scandi?
Dashiell - horrible. Reminds me of Daryl which is awful. Ezikiel also awful.
Samson - yes I like it, although with Max are they two names that indicate "big"? Maybe it's just me.

What about:
Conrad
Jonas
Johan
Leander
Ernest
Patrick
Douglas

I like Samson but he is most likely to get Sam so depends on how you feel about that.

I've got 3 boys, if I had another I like Griffin, Flynn, Timothy, Elias, Hugo or Gabriel. You would think after 3 boys I would have run out of boys names I like (there are more names I like I just can't remember them off the top of my head!) but I keep adding more to the list!

TheVanguardSix Fri 01-Nov-19 20:31:02

Oh I love your names, OP.

Jago is my favourite. But if you're worried about it being too similar to Ivo, how about

Orson
Otis
Phineas
Linus
Amos
Atticus
Jude
Oberon

Elijah (nn Eli) is lovely and goes well with your other boys?
