3rd Boy Name Suggestions Needed!

I am not yet TTC but thinking of boy names to try to head off the inevitable struggle my husband and I will go through if we have a third boy. :) 

We have DS8 Jude Patrick and DS3 Seth Edward. Middle names are family names that fit our style. I'd LOVE a third Biblical 1 syllable or 4 letter name, but I've been through every  option that fits those criteria and none my DH and I agree on completely. 

The only names we both like (but don't love) are James, Evan, and Beckett. Hubby likes Ewan but I think the "ew" teasing factor is too high, and Ewan might be more unusual than I want to go. 

I'd love some fresh suggestions that you think fit our style! Even if not Biblical or 1 syllable. Thanks!! 


P.S. For reference our girl names are Evelyn, Gwyneth, and Elliot.

Do you not like Luke?  It seems very much in the style of Jude, but different enough not to be mixed up.  Other 4-letter Biblical names that seem like especially good matches are Joel, Levi, and Noah.

Unfortunately we aren't fans of Luke. :/ I like Levi but DH doesn't. Other Biblical names I like but DH has rejected = Ezra, Boaz, Abel, Paul, Malachi, Abe (Abram), Josiah, Silas, Nathan, Nathaniel. And many more, lol.

I think Eli is cute with your boys' names, although two syllables. 

Some more to add to the pool: Joel, David, Samuel, Adam, Gideon, Owen, Eric, Caleb, Joshua, Cole, Micah, Gavin

You could expand the pool by finding a name you like that contracts to a four-letter nickname. Michael becomes Mike, Nathaniel becomes Nate, Nicholas becomes Nick, etc.

Evan fits well- it is a version of John, a four letter BIBLICAL name!!

Why is Elliott on your girl list but not your boy list? 


Zeke?  Short for Ezekiel - which imho is a bit much!  But I do like Zeke.

Zack, short for Zachary or Zachariah?  I agree that there is so much potential for 4-letter nicknames from longer biblical names.

Agree that Owen is an excellent alternative to Ewan.  And I agree that "ew" could lead to some unpleasant teasing.  Other alternatives: Eamon (pronounced AY-mon), Rowan, even Raymond....
