I like Peregrine & Lysander best and especially with your other children's names (which, btw, are fantastic!).
I think Gulliver would go really well with your other children's names but as Oliver will be the middle it obviously can't! :(
Ok, the hard thing with the names is that they are classic names with nature nn's. Your options don't really fit to me, as they need to have a nature nn.
I love Hawthorne for that reason. His nn could be Haw or Thorne, and it would still be nature-y. Also, Willoughby could work if his nn was Willow.
Phineas could also work with the nn of Finn.
Ok, thanks for all of the suggestions again! We read through them all and we came up with some over all favourites, so now our list is-
Peregrine Oliver (Although it's become a concern that it is too close to Persephone's name.. mm)
Hawthorne Oliver (I really love this one but hubby isn't 100% sure. We both love it though)
So now I'd love to hear what you think, and which one is your favorite! I think we're just going to stick with a list and decide when we meet him, which is what we did with our other children, but I'd still love to hear your opinions!
Thanks for all of the wonderful suggestions, they've helped us a ton!
(PS - hbeagle27 - I have been using the site for a while but never made an account, I've used it throughout this pregnancy to try and give us some inspiration by going through the lists and the forums. So now that we're getting close and we hadn't really come up with anything that we really love, I figured that my best bet would be to make an account and ask for help!
Sorry for the confusion :) )
Ulysses Oliver is my favorite!
They are all fabulous though!
Good luck, and look forward to hearing what you decide when you meet your little one.
I love your list! You couldn't go wrong with either choice, really. However, my favorites are Ulysses, Hawthorne & Thaddeus. They are perfect for your sibset!
Cant wait to see what you name him :)
Peregrine isn't too close to Persephone at all. Yes they begin with the same letter but that's all.
I like Caspian Oliver best from your list.
Welcome to Nameberry!

I can't wait to hear what you pick!
I really like Peregrine and Lysander with Wolfgang and Persephone but I think Peregrine is a little to close to Persephone.
I love Lysander Oliver, and someone suggested Leo as a nickname—so great! I do think Peregrine is a bit too close to Persephone, especially if you use Perry as a nickname, but you could make it work if you really wanted it.
Thaddeus nn Thad is my second choice, followed by Hawthorne.
I don't think you can go wrong with any of these options, though I do think that Persephone and Peregrine are a little too close together. My favourites are Lysander Oliver, Hawthorne Oliver and Caspian Oliver. Good luck! :)
