Tucker and Connor's brother

Hello, looking for some help on naming baby boy #3.  Brothers are Tucker Alexander and Connor Ezra.  Doesn't have to end with 'er'.  I like Maddox, Parker, Corbin, and Carter but just can't decide for sure.  Open to any suggestions!  Thanks!  Due in 12 weeks.

Personally I think with two boy names ending in -er, you should move away from a third name with that ending. Otherwise your kids start to sound like a nursery rhyme along the lines of the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker. 

Of your current list I like Maddox the best. I think Carter is too close in sound to Connor. Corbin is a bit more distinctive but I think Maddox has the most individual sound.

 

Other ideas: Maxwell, Liam, Finn, Ross, Jack.

Hmm, I think another "er" ending name would be fine-though if you ever have a 4th you might feel like you have to continue the trend.

Maddox-this name is just too "celebrity" for me because of Maddox Jolie-Pitt.  

Corbin-not bad.  It breaks the "er" trend, but it would give you 2 C names.

Carter-does seem too close to Connor.  Hard C, ends in "er", 2 syllables.  I'd probably pass on this one.

Some other ideas-Fletcher, Doyle, Donovan, Sullivan, Mason, Parker, Murphy, Porter & Sawyer.

I would personally stay away from the 'er' ending, but it's not terrible if you want to go with it. I actually think Corbin works the best of your listed options. The two 'c' names wouldn't bother me. I don't mind Maddox either. The celebrity connection is there but as the third in a sibset I don't think it's too much.  Parker and Carter sounda bit matchy to me.

Other suggestions: Fletcher (seconded), Fraser, Spencer, Flannery, Griffin, Mason, Campbell, Archer, Sutton, Dexter

I like Maddox with Connor and Tucker. Some more names I think sound nice would be: Mitchell, Lucas, William, Joseph, Jacob. There are a lot more names that could work too!

I would say away from another -er name if you can find something that you love that doesn't have the -er ending. Here are some names that I think go well with Tucker and Connor.

Brodie

Logan

Landon

Tristen

Ethen

Reese

Bryson

Jayce

Good luck! Congrat on another boy :)
