Help! I have two beautiful boys and am due with another boy on Christmas Eve. But I just can't find a name that I really love. My other boys names are Leo Xavier and Henry Jude. Our last name is like Banish. I love their names and I want something equally special. But because this is our third boy, I kind of wanted to name him something a little less common but still sticking to the old fashioned English sounding names. Names we have thought of so far are-
Alfie (probably number one at the moment) but not sure about a grown man with this name and not sure if I could do Alfred.
Oscar- I loved this name for a few weeks but now I don't know about it. Something just doesn't feel right.
James (nickname jimmy)- very, very common though
Rupert- too old man like??
Franklin- quite long compared to my other boys names
Atticus- LOVE this name but husband is not convinced
Edward or Edmund- love the nicknames Ted, Ned, Teddy etc. prefer Edward but worried about the twilight thing.
Possible middle names (but haven't really thought that far ahead yet!) are Luke/Lucas, Sonny, Noel (Christmas baby).
I really want to find a name that I love for this precious little guy but I'm running out of time and nothing seems to fit!
Kind regards (and pleas for help)
I suggest Felix! It's one of my own favorites, and I think it's wonderful with Leo and Henry while also being less common. And it means happiness and luck, which is lovely.

I had my beautiful third boy five days ago so thought I would update you on the name we chose for him. We decided on Oscar Noel for our precious little guy. It suits him perfectly and nothing else seemed right for him. Thanks for everyone's help and suggestions!
