    Need help with a name for Amelia and Owen's little brother

    Hi all,

    My daughter is Amelia Grace and my son is Owen Charles. We just found out we are expecting another boy later this year! I am thrilled, but I find boys' names much more difficult than girls' names. My husband and I argued over probably every name in the book until we agreed on Owen the day of my c-section.

    I like names that are not overly common, but not super unusual either - anything in the top 10 is out. I tend to gravitate toward the more classic names, which is how I view both Amelia and Owen, but I am open to other suggestions. I would say my husband is more conventional than I am.

    The middle name will most likely be Edward or Gregory, our last name is very German and starts with Gott-, lots of consonants!

    Names I very much liked last time but we didnt end up using:

    Luke (I found it hard to say with our last name...the consonant sounds trip me up)
    Callum (thought it was a little too unusual, though I still love it)
    Grant (husband likes Graham better, but I don't)

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Isaac was the first name that came to mind. Callum is a perfect fit; stylistically it's a perfect match with Amelia and Owen. It's rising in popularity too, so it isn't that unusual. Other ideas:

    Amelia, Owen, and Caleb
    Amelia, Owen, and Liam
    Amelia, Owen, and Gabriel
    Amelia, Owen, and Samuel
    Amelia, Owen, and Nathan
    Amelia, Owen, and Gavin
    Amelia, Owen, and Henry
    Amelia, Owen, and Jack
    Amelia, Owen, and Julian
    Amelia, Owen, and Levi
    Amelia, Owen, and Dominic
    Amelia, Owen, and Hudson
    Emily • Nineteen • United States
    ♂ | Samuel Edward George Arthur Ezra Gideon James
    ♀ | Jane Helen Anne Cora Phoebe Gwen Caroline

    Thank you!! I like Isaac. I think my husband vetoed that last time, but maybe he will forget he did . Emmett was a frontrunner last time for awhile too. I keep coming back to Callum. I know my family would think it was off the wall (our fam is full of Michaels, Josephs, etc.), but I don't think so, and I think the nickname Cal is cute. But I like hearing all of the ideas!!
