With Cordelia and Gretchen, my top three choices would be...
1 Theodore - handsome, distinguished and majestic with a spunky nn of Theo. Theodore matches the length of Cordelia and Theo is a popular name in Germany so it's a good fit with Gretchen.
2 Henry - a more popular choice but it goes well with both girls.
3 Matthias/Julius - I can't decide which I like better. I do think you should stick with the "us" ending. I love Julian but it shares a similar ending with Gretchen's name. I love Aurelius too but it shares a pronounced "el" with Cordelia. I know I'm picky! Don't despair! I hope you're feeling better soon! As long as you have a healthy baby, that's the main thing!All the best,

Baby #4 will be the last for us, so I am kind of sad to be saying goodbye to the beloved names I will now never use! At least I can still come here to encourage others to use them!

I wished I could vote for two, because I love Alaric and Ptolemy both. I chose Alaric on the poll because it's sure to get less pronunciation confusion than Ptolemy...but how cool would it be to actually meet a Ptolemy!.
I say Aurelius something like ah-really-us. I don't know if that's correct either, but I would like it better if it is supposed to be pronounced your way.
