We're down to under a month until our third and final child is born and the pressure to settle on a name is peaking. DH and I have been waffling on names for our new little boy the entire way! (I made a similar post here several months ago). The first several months of the pregnancy, his name was set as Henry, then we settled on Wyatt for the past few months and now we're back to square one. 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.

I like all those choices! My favorite is Henry, then Wyatt, then Charles.

Just because you call him Charlie now doesn't mean he has to be Charlie forever. He can be Chaz or Charles or Chuck whenever, if that's what he wants. That's why you give them the formal name to play with.

I know someone with an Abigail and an Ethan, and her other boy is Jonathan, but I'm not a fan of the double "than."

Other suggestions:
Miles
Jack
Oliver
Emmett
Elliott
Milo
Julian
Frederick
Felix
Noah
Owen
Luke
Benjamin
Emery

I like Henry Elias the best!! It's a great name!
I also really like Elias as a first name. One of my friends named her son Elias and calls him Eli. He is adorable and I love his names! What about Elias Charles? It works well together And it sounds great with Abigail and Ethan!

Elias! I like the trend of the names beginning with vowels and it sounds great w/ the others. I love it the most of them all. Out of the other three, Wyatt is my first choice

Good luck!

All great names. As to Charlie not working for an adult, people just seem to grow into their names. My husband is a Charlie (Charles). My vote is for Wyatt though.

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.

Some other options:

Thomas Eli

William Elias

Andrew Elias

Oliver Elias

Malcolm Elias

Nathan Elias

Gregory Elias

Jonah Elias

Frederick Elias

Jasper Elias

Jack Elias

Jude Elias

Julian Elias

Desmond Elias

Theodore Elias

I like Wyatt. I think that Henry is old fashioned and does not go well with Abigail and Ethan which are more modern and popular right now.
