I think Revel, Vox and Venture are the most evocative names by far. My favorites are the latter two since Revel I think will very often be misheard as 'revel.'
I don't think Dexter and Vox are too close. If anything, look at the Jolie-Pitts for confirmation (Maddox, Pax and Knox all end with X).
I also think the suggestion of Swift was pretty genius-- a swift is a small bird, and the everyday word means 'fleet,' and it's got a snappy 1-syllable sound.
Surgeons in general are inordinately concerned with people's bowel function (more so than the average person, I grant you). I prescribe fleet's enemas at least twice a week, to people young and old. To me it's the dominant association of the word, and it might be not just for the elderly or for other docs but also for anyone who's ever had surgery (since post-op constipation is present in >80% of patients).
I love the sounds of Vox and Venture together, but wonder if you might salvage Oswald here and stick it in the middle? Vox Oswald Venture sounds great-- you get fusty old Oswald bookended by two sharp modern meaning words starting with V; and your son would get a "standard" name just like his brothers. Oswald himself was a cool historical figure-- a 7th century king who Christianized northeastern England before being slain in battle.
One final thought-- I can't believe Venture isn't used more often. It's a very uplifting word, a noun and a verb, inspiring one to undertake new ad*ventures* and set off into the unknown.
I just love saying it... Vox Oswald Venture Miller....XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)

I really like Revel and Venture and Vox. Vox Venture is such a spunky and cool name combo! I'd go for that one!My darling Roo, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014
