Baby's older siblings are Abigail (Abby) and Ethan.
The names we're considering now are:
Henry Elias (back in first place! Likely would call him Henry, but nn Harry is OK)
Charles Elias (nn Charlie ... fears here are that Charlie is like Tommy or Billy ... work well as kids' nicknames, maybe sound too childish when little man grows up!)
Wyatt Elias (we still like it, solid name for boy and man, doesn't really have any nicknames, which is a positive. Can't really say why it's dropped from the top spot, still might use it.)
Truth be told, I want to use Elias as a first name, but husband doesn't like it enough to use it as a fn.
We would appreciate any thoughts on names that make good siblings for our other two and anything else I've thrown out there.
Sorry I didn't read through the other responses, but I have to say you have beautifully named children. While Henry and Charles aren't personal favourites of mine, they go very well with Abigail and Ethan. Charles can choose what he wants to go by later in life.
