I love Jack and Samuel, especially. Although with Maximilian and Felix--they seem like such rich, romantic names--popular names like Jack and Samuel don't seem to hold up, although I do like Alexander with your boys. I'm not really sure he would feel left out, but I love the subtle tie of having the trendy/cool/uncommon "X" in each boys' name.
I also really love Grover (swoon!). I've crushed on it for so long, it's nice to see it getting some love.
I don't know if it appeals to you, but I think Conrad would work really well with Maximilian and Felix.

Thank you for the responses.
Unfortunately I think Alexander can only be a middle name for us. Firstly because we aren't keen on Alex or Xander as nicknames and secondly because we are trying to avoid getting stuck in the x theme.
We had the realisation today that if we go with Samuel Alexander his initials will be SAM!!! This is a keen contender at the moment.
Also holding strong on our list are:
Grover (though we are starting to doubt this one)
Lachlan (despite its popularity here)
Edward (I forgot to include this in the previous list)
I feel like we might not have come across "the name" yet! I'm thinking about posting a thread for boy and girl suggestions in the baby name thread so if you have any ideas I look forward to seeing them there!Proud Mum of Maximilian Charles, Felix James and Harold William.

Alexander gets my vote! I like the idea of all the names having an x. It gives the siblings a subtle connection.“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
