I would stay away from anything too distinctly Bible as Henry and Mollie don't feel that way at all. I think Oscar, Linus, Clark, Vince (better Vincent nn Vince) all could work. I was going to suggest Samuel nn Sam, but I really like the idea of Silas so that Gideon wouldn't stick out. Otherwise my vote would go to Clark. I think that's the best fit.Cora~Esme~Hazel~Sylvie~Thea

Thanks for the input!
@mamabear87 - I do like Silas but it doesn't work any better than Linus with our last name which sounds like "Oh tiss" and is very friendly with Milo
@tfzolghadr - I know Vince is a nickname, but not in a way that I would hesitate to put it on a resume or campaign ad. Does anyone know any long forms of Vince other than Vincent?
@bayles- Thanks for the list, this is exactly what I was hoping for.
Evander - a possibility especially since I could conceivably derive Vince as a nn.
August - won't work because I had a beloved dog with the name who went by "gus".
Cyrus- just won't work with my ln.
Fitz-I am accepting of this name, but my husband thought I was joking when I brought it up.
Dashiell- Such a cute name, but just not us.
Porter- taken by an adorable nephew.
Sayer- I prefer it to Sawyer, but my husband doesn't like either.
Myles- My inlaws' surname
Avan - how is this pronounced?
Edison- I know its not the same name, but I have an uncle Ed that is far from honorable.
Thank you so much!Mom to Henry, Mollie, Gideon, and expecting Clark Ebenezer in November.
