Boys Names... Need Inspiration

Hi everyone,
Expecting a baby boy early in the new year and feel like I am just scrolling through baby name websites and forums with no inspiration so looking for some ideas.
We love the name Albie but we know so many little Albie's we feel it will be too common in our area so that's what we are rather settled on for a middle name.
At the minute we have Jace Albie and Reign Albie on our list (not a huge list at the minute haha).
Looking for names that will go with our two girls and our other little boy's names which are Petra, Francesca (Frankie) and Ted.
Open to any suggestions and ideas... smile

Francesca is lovely, Petra is nice Ted is a bit everywhere but fine.

But Jace and Reign need to be binned and never spoken of again.

Thanks but I was asking for inspiration and suggestions not criticism on my current children's names...

I really like your DC's names and they're not really matchy-matchy so you can probably get away with most names. I have to say I'm not keen on Jace or Reign though which I don't think are as stylish as your other names. I do like Albie as a mn.
How about:
Leon
Rowan
Silas
Jonas
Gus
Flynn
Nathaniel (Nat)
Austin
Amos

Jace as a full name = no
As a shortened version of Jason (which in itself is an awful name) is ok

Reign is, to quote a mumsnet classic
"no. Just no."

Boys names that go with Ted I would think

Jack
Finn
Seth

Saul

Perhaps I wasn’t clear: your other kids’ names are nice, Jace and Reign are execrable.

How about Rain rather than Reign?

Or
Arlo
Bertram
Milo
Arthur (Art)
Chase

Your kids have lovely names. Please don't call the new one Jace or Reign - they are really grim.

Albie is sweet - Arnie, Ernie, Bertie might be an alternatives

Jesse, Jethro, Jude, James, Sam, Leo, Eli (Elijah), Joe (Joseph), Nathan, Max, Milo, Robin might work with Albie.

I love Jethro!

Jace and Reign seem a very different (more modern/trendy?) style to your other children to me, so I wouldn't use them personally (I don't feel sibsets need to "match" exactly but some pairings do sound a bit odder than others). I adore Petra btw! And Albie works well with Ted.

More names similar in style to Ted imo:
Jem
Kit
Hal
Xander
Robin
Ivo
Bram

I'm really sorry but I really really dislike both Jace and Reign. Reign is SO Kardashian and Jace just seems like 90s American to me. Albie is a bit nothing-ey as a full name, although nice as a nickname for Albert or even Alban.

Seth
Guy
Jago
Silas
Jude
Jem

Jace I’m not keen on, and Reign to me sounds more of feminine Name

Jesse
Jackson/Jaxon
Finn
Jenson
Leo
Bertie
Archie
Wilf
Dylan
Ellis

Reign will be continually mis-spelt.

Meant to say 'is it too common'

Theo is gorgeous but I do think of Ted and Theo as very similar as they are both shortened versions of Theodore.

I don’t think Ted and Theo together are too much of an issue - Ted is short for Edward as well as Theodore.

But you could go for Leo? - which solves the similarity problem and is less popular.

MrsBertBibby Sun 28-Nov-21 10:28:02

Elias would be great!
Conrad
Leon

I don't think Theo works when you already have Ted, and it is very popular.
