2 weeks left to pick a 3rd sibling's name!
My daughters are Charlotte Noelle and Matilda Marie. Baby #3 will be here in the next 2 weeks, and I need inspiration! It's a surprise, so we need boy & girl choices.
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 taste in names, they would all go well with Charlotte and Matilda.

Charlotte, Matilda and June sounds like an interesting sibset and is not completely discordant. However, the thing that strikes me is that June does seem a bit insubstantial next to Charlotte and Matilda. Charlotte and Matilda are visually and verbally longer, and are, quite literally, regal names. If I were you, I'd go with a classic name that has just as much weight behind it. Elizabeth, Helena, Katherine, Victoria, Sophia, Isabel, and Eleanor are all obvious choices, but is seems that although you like classic names, you might want something just a bit off the current trend. How about Alice, Josephine, Guinevere, Julia, Portia, Juliet, Veronica, Adela, Phillipa, Cordelia, Antonia, Louisa, Beatrice, Rowena, Claudia, Clara, Penelope, or Emmeline?
Arthur seems like a very good choice for a brother, and I love it. Oscar is indeed a classic name, but personally I can never think past Oscar the Grouch and Oscar Madison. Other boy suggestions: Edmund, Edward, Geoffrey, Philip, Stephen, Peter, Paul, Gregory, Linus, Frederick, Oliver, Leo, Julian, or Sebastian?
Good luck. You have great taste in names, so you are sure to make a wonderful choice!
