Boy name to go with Henry & Arthur

We just found out we are having a THIRD boy!! It took us almost 4 weeks to name our second. Our eldest is Henry Thomas and our Second is Arthur Kenneth (nn Archie).

Seeing as it took so long to pick a boy name last time, I thought I'd get a head start on this one 😂 Hopefully 4 months is enough!!

I'd love to hear your traditional name suggestions. Our surname is Brown so we defo can't do James and I can't bring myself to do Charlie Brown (even though hubby says it's fine)! What do you think?

Got to keep up the kings of England theme, surely? ;-) William, Stephen, Richard, John, Edward, James, Charles, George. But probably not John or George because your surname only has one syllable too. James Brown and Charlie Brown also problematic for obvious reasons... so yeah, William, Stephen, Richard or Edward!

Or you could go crazy and call him Canute. :-D

We're having our third boy and we're calling him Sidney. Our other two have very traditional names.

Agree with this, keep the traditional kingly theme - Edward instantly sprung to mind for me as it's 2 syllables like Henry and Arthur and is an ultimate classic, lots of nn's, can't go wrong sort of name.

Or you could go more subtle and chose a non-english kingly "classic" name - Louis, Robert, Alexander, David etc

Love Henry and Arthur btw!

@nitsandwormsdodger I'd like them to go together, as I'm sure I'll be shouting all three of them together fairly regularly haha

Really it’s basically got to be one of George, Louis, Freddie (Frederick/Alfred), William or Edward.
