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.

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 🤣

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!

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
