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?

Oh I love your names so much OP! We have two boys here, wonder if we could have a 3rd just to pinch one of your excellent names.

A friend has just had a Torben. Or what about Art (Arthur), Oren/Orin (we weren’t brave enough to choose this), Dalziel (D-L pronunciation) if you like Dashiell - and I think you should use Dashiell btw if you like it. I know a couple. Dash is a fun nickname the boys themselves seem to enjoy.

If I'd had a fourth boy he'd probably have been Daniel. Daniel is going to be a bit too ordinary for you, given your other names, so my vote is for Dashiell as it starts & ends with the same letters as Daniel smile

I think Tristan would be a lovely match with the three names.

Hector leapt at me when I saw your fab existing names.

Wow so many great suggestions, amazing, feeling a bit less panicked now so thank you!

I’m loving:

Idris (not sure on two I initials though)
Edmund
Caspar
Valentine (!) not sure I dare!
Conrad
Phineas
Rex (has been discussed and dismissed as Maxim is Max 90% of the time)
Miles

Also quite like Torben, which has also reminded me of Tor. I used to know one and I’ve always thought it was super cool, must suggest it to the husband! Thanks so much for all these great ideas smile

Congratulations!

Not got any suggestions but I agree with you not to have names that are similar, we have a couple of boy cousins and the whole family calls them by each other's names - it drives us, and them, bonkers.
