Please help me decide on DS no. 3 name.

A brother for Thomas and Jake.

We can't decide between Lucas or Archie, I am leaning towards Lucas, DH prefers Archie.

We like timeless names that have proven popular over the ages.

Many thanks!

Both are fab names, i love Archie (especially as a nn for Archer) but its the name of a good friends son so will never be on my list. Do you like Luke? As Lucas may be shortened to that (which i still like)...

I love both names but with your other boys names I'd definitely choose Lucas.

Archer, NN Archie. Both great names though IMO.

I choose Lucas over Archie only because I don't like NN as first names, but I think Archer would go better with Thomas and Jake.

Does Thomas get called Tom? I personally wouldnt' choose two names ending in "s". But if Thomas does usually go by Tom, I think Lucas is a good fit.

Same.

I prefer Luca to Lucas though. Especially as you already have a Thomas; ending in the 'ss' sound obviously.

One of my favourite boys names, but we already had a Luke nephew so it couldn't go on our list!

I'm going to go against the grain & vote for Archie! They're both great names but I think Archie works best with your sibset, because you already have a name ending in "as".

I vote Archie. However I am probably biased by the fact that I know an adorable little Archie and a real jerk named Lucas.

Lucas is a great name.

Love Lucas.

Archie sounds cute while they are little - but its one of those names I just can't contemplate for a man. Archer would be a better alternative.

Lucas is overly used
Archie is cool.

I think if you like timeless names then Lucas is the name for you!

I dont like the name Archie at all.

Lucas is fine and  I dont think Lucas and Thomas are too alike.

However I do far prefer Luke myself - but I would say Luke is as similar to Jake as Lucas is to Thomas - no point avoiding the s ending only to have 2 names ending in -ke.
