Thanks, all great ideas! You've given me plenty to think about.
Jem, you nailed my taste. Frederick, Barnaby and Percival are all names we've discussed previously!

We've just discovered that we're having baby number 3. We've got two little boys, Theo (Theodore Henry) and Gus (Augustus Jack). I'm guessing we'll be welcoming another boy but have run out of name...
How interesting! We have Augustus, nn Gus and a Theodore, nn Theo!
We have an Augustus who we thought we'd call Augie. Turns out his older brother could say Gus and it's stuck. But here in Australia everyone assumes Gus is short for Angus. Gus is a great nickname,...
I'm a fan of Jonathan David. It's got timeless appeal.
Another resource you might find useful is - http://www.nsw.gov.au/baby-names, it shows NSW name popularity over the last 111 years.
I'm in Sydney. I've met one newborn Arlo. For what it's worth, I think it's a fabulous name! If I didn't have a Theo we would have considered it for our second son.
We have an Augustus Jack, so I think August Jack is a great combination!
Hsort - we wanted to call Augustus Augie but thanks to the 2 year old, he quickly became Gus (or Gussie)! Jealous of your...
Reid is fabulous. It'd work with almost any middle name.
I don't see JOG as an issue at all.
Not to close at all. I'd say Theo and Leo or Theo and Arlo were too close because of the 'o' sound but Eli and Theo seem different enough to me.

It just goes to show that everyone has different taste. I love almost all the names you've listed @namelover77!

I'd stick with your original name, your SIL will love her niece when she arrives.
But I do like the combination of Edith Victoria!
How about another biblical name that is not too common? I do think that perhaps Luke is too plain? I agree, boys names are hard! Here are some suggestions -

I like Otis. Other short names that aren't to common -
Milo or Miles
That's funny isabellemaree, we considered Frederick when naming both Theo and Gus but decided it was too clunky. But maybe not!
With Tate and Leo my two picks are Fred and Jude. I think Fred (either Frederick or Alfred) are classic enough that a child wouldn't question it, as opposed to something made up!
I'm in Australia...
Roseyposey I like your full name/nickname suggestions. Julian, Barnaby and Ignatius are my picks of those.
Lovejaybayy - your middle name picks are great. Owen, Lucas, James and William really...
This is a hypothetical question for now, but what would you name Theodore Henry (Theo) and Augustus Jack's (Gus') baby brother?
We're out of names so all suggestions are welcome!

Leo Maddox, followed by Noah Maddox. As the others have said, it flows better in the middle. Good luck!
I once knew a Revel, everyone called him Rev. Never struck me as an unusual name. He's a corporate lawyer now, not a rebel at all!
No doubt there are some repeats but what about -
Theodore Baxter, hands down.

A for boys, Augustus, Arthur, Aubrey. E for girls, Edith, Eliza and Eleanor are my current favourites.
Oops, sorry onelove19, Harriet is indeed a great suggestion! As are Nell and Edith.
