Please help us! We cannot agree on a name for our third boy!

Siblings are Arthur and Edmund.

We like names that are traditional but not common/popular and can have several Nic names.

We both like Frederic, but I don’t like the thought of having an Eddie and a Freddie πŸ˜‚

Why is this so hard!!??!!

I love your boys names 😍😍

Arthur, Edmund and

Percival nn Percy
Theodore nn Theo (although my Theodore goes by Teddy so you could end up with Eddie and Teddy?)
Charles nn Charlie, Chaz, Chuck
Jackson
Harrison nn Harry
Christopher
Richard
James
Benjamin
Zachary or Zachariah nn Zac
Isaac
Samuel
Thomas
Jacob
John or Johnathan

edited to add: I like the idea of another vowel as the first initial? so Arthur, Edmund and Isaac would be my pick from what I've list.

Love Theodore as a match with your others but yes the Eddie and Teddy thing would pose the same issue as Freddy. Although I do know a 10 year old Theodore whose mates have given him the NN Thor which is all kinds of awesome !

Augustus ( Gus or Augie)
Ignatius (Iggy or Nate)
Nathanial (Nate)

Arthur and Edmund are names I would associate with pre-Norman British kings. If you want to keep up the theme, I guess it's Harold unless you're keen on Aethelbald or Egbert. Alfred and Edward also fit but are a bit similar to the names you already have.
Although King Arthur was a bit earlier and may not have actually existed or been a king if he did exist so the theme is a little bit flexible!

Timothy is what first jumped to mind. Traditional but uncommon in recent years. Could be Tim or Timmy. Or something quirkier like Moth!

Thank you so much everyone! Some truly great names listed!
I find it funny that Theodore is coming up again and again, as it was our second choice for our first son, and I thought a good choice for this Bub, but partner has gone off it! Gah!!
