    Naming Agatha's older brother...

    His name used to be Theodore "Ted", but I can't use that because it's too close to another character's name. So I need a new name for him, preferably one with a nickname that his family calls him. He's 18, his last name is Van Rossum, his sister's name is Agatha Fleur, and his mother is an English teacher (she named his sister after Agatha Christie, so I think maybe his name should be after an author as well).
    Also, his father's family is from the Netherlands, so his middle name should probably be Dutch.
    Thank you in advance to anyone who answers.

    I like Auden and Edmund from those previous suggested, but Edmund and Agatha sound the best. It might be a bit too outré, but what about Pelham? Good luck!

    I'd go for Agatha Fleur and Victor Jens van Rossum.

    I know Jens is more Danish than Dutch but I love the sound it all makes together ^_^

    Austen for a first name, like Jane Austen with the last name turned in to the first name. I also like:
    Charles
    Alfred
    Sherlock-not an author, but Agatha Christie writes mystery, so I thought it would work. Other popular mystery names would work, too, like John or even Watson used as a first name (although that would be kind of odd)
    Scott
    Mark or Twain
    Oscar
    George
    Lewis

    Sorry, I don't know any Dutch names!
