Congrats! What a classy name!
Congrats! What great names, and such healthy birth weights! It must have been a long summer carrying such big twins; you're an amazing mama!
Thank you, everyone! And yes, having an "x" in all their middle names is intentional. :)
I made a thread about a month ago asking for advice and listing some options my husband and I had, but we ended up throwing it all out the window and have named our third son Flynn...

My first son is named Miles, so I'm rather biases towards it I suppose. Our last name also ends in "s" and hasn't been a problem.
I guess I'm the only one who thinks of Rocky Balboa's girlfriend? All I can think of when I hear Adrian is of Rocky yelling to her, so it's really cemented as a girl's name in my mind.

You have such fun names for your kids, but you don't enjoy picking out names? I find it hard to be believe, ha ha.
I'll suggest a few that I don't think I've seen here:
Everett I think would sound better, although I'd probably choose it over Henry regardless of the last name.
Everett Cian and Everett Cole are both great options! As someone who was given the same, boring middle name as her sister and grandmother, I would say pass on Micheal. I just feel like the middle...

I think your first option on your list of Samuel Hansford is fitting all your check points, although my favorites are Samuel Clive and Samuel Grey. The later in particular conjurs up quite the...
Honestly, all I can think of is it's a coloring for cats; one that also happens to only turn up in female cats, so I'd veto it for a boy.

I'm with niftylavalamp: the connection is going to be there with all the August names. I say just go with the name you're really happy with. They won't be constantly introduced together all their...
My vote goes to Connor Benjamin. I think it flows the best out of those. I have to tell you: when I saw the name Cade, at first I thought it said Cad!
I'd rank them:
Although truthfully, I only really like the first 2 options, which I'd also vote to use James with.
I vote Cyrus Oberon Wesley. It's hard to speculate how they'd all sound for certain with your last name, but if it's one syllable, I'd stay away from the third name in that sequence also being one...

I agree with sharwell on both accounts of avoiding an 'n' ending name, and needing a multi-syllable first name to proceed Rick. Out of your list, I like Oliver and Elliot, and out of the other...
Everett: Mt Everest
Sawyer: Country bumpkin
Ryan: Friend of mine
Mason: Stone mason
Jack: 'o lantern
Liam: Friend of mine
Archer: An actual archer

I think if you're going that route, Jonathan is the best choice, as it's the slightly less common choice. My own family currently has about 6 "John's in it, so I personally steer clear of anything...
As an American, I can assure you I am completely confused by those pronunciations, especially the one for Ivaan. I think everyone is going to pronounce it with the long "i" sound when they see it. ...
Andrew is a wonderful, classic name that isn't over-used. I have a good friend named Andrew, and another friend's 8 year old son has the name as well. Neither use a nick name (well, the 8 year old...

I just wanted to note that female bettas have very short fins, while the males have very long, flowing fins and are generally more colorful.

I think Jude is a wonderful name and goes well with Luke! Go for it!

I seems a bit clunky to me, and kind of stuffy.
I agree with emsky's suggestion of having a more adventurous middle name. As for some potential first names that are maybe more your husband's style, I'll put out:
