    Wow, these are some great suggestions!

    I share the concern that June is very short compared to the older siblings.

    I've gotten stuck on Magnolia & Georgia recently also. I don't know that I have the nerve though.. we live in the northeast US. Is it weird to use a name with such obviously southern charm? Of course, I already used Charlotte - but I wasn't really thinking of South Carolina when we chose it.

    Magnolia sounds a bit over-the-top Southern to me, but Georgia doesn't. Charlotte and Georgia just sound like classic feminizations to me...

    I love your girls names. I think June is a little short though.
    Can I also say I love that you're "not nickname people"? I'm not exactly a nickname person myself. I'm tempted to suggest Margaret, but it's too close to other names.
    Other formal names:
    Alice
    Adelaide
    Daria
    Eleanor
    Gwyneth
    Felicity
    Francesca
    Harriet
    Hyacinth
    Lorelei
    Lillian
    Nadia
    Natalie/Natalia
    Penelope
    Rachel
    Rosalind
    Rosemary
    Sybil
    Vanessa
    Vivian

    I like Arthur!

    Good Luck!

    We're not nickname people, and prefer classic over 'kreative' names.

    So far I'm leaning toward Oscar or Arthur, and I love June (for a girl), but DH isn't convinced.

    I really appreciate any suggestions!
    I love your girl's names Charlotte and Matilda, they are both strong names and yet they are very feminine too.

    I think Adelaide would be brilliant if you have another daughter

    I think I would choose Henry James or Harry James for a son, it is a perfect match with the girl's names.

    I am not a fan of Arthur as it reminds me of arthritis and I love Oscar Wilde I think it is a possibility for you but the name is just not as lovable as the girl's names.

    Have you considered Alistair/Alister? I think this is a terrific name, very usable and handsome and a great match.

    If you wanted to step outside the box a little I think the middle name of Wilder for a son with a classic first name would work brilliantly, eg. Tristan Wilder.
