Now to the boys list. I'll bold the best ones for flow (not necessarily my faves). I'll try to be objective!
Liam - Not a fave but this name goes well with Wright and Gavin. Gavin and Liam both share a Celtic origin. Liam Oliver Wright?
Elijah (Eli) - I prefer just Eli but I don't think either name goes well with Wright (too much "i" sound). This Biblical name is very different in style to Gavin as well.
Oliver (Ollie) - I love the spunky Oliver . Didn't you have Arthur on your list? What happened to him?
Felix - When it comes to flowing with the surname vs. having a perfectly cohesive sibset, the flow wins out! Felix Oliver Wright would be lovely and although Oliver is a different style than Gavin, I love it with your last name.
Maxwell (Max) - I love Maxwell but Maxwell Wright has pronounced w's. I ended up sounding like Elmer Fudd after saying it a couple of times out loud. Max Wright sounds better to me.
Huxley (Hux) - I don't like this name and I should because of the literary connection. It's somewhat schizophrenic - it's macho at the beginning (Hux) and more feminine at the end (ley). Confusing images.
Caleb - Even though this is an old Biblical name, it has a contemporary sound to it that goes well with Gavin. Caleb Maxwell Wright?
Connor - A predictable choice.
Jonah - A Biblical name for the modern age. Jonah Sullivan Wright is wonderful. I can definitely see Gavin and Jonah as brothers.
Sullivan - Nice enough Irish name but I don't like the Van and Vin in Sullivan and Gavin.All the best,

As a brother for Gavin Miller, I like:
Liam Connor Wright - My second favorite with Gavin Miller Wright.
Oliver Felix Wright - My favorite with Gavin Miller Wright.
Maxwell (Max) Wright - I really like Maxwell with Gavin, but Maxwell Wright is too much "W" sound - it's a tongue twister to say aloud.Current Favorites:Elizabeth Lily nn EllieMary Emmeline nn MaisieSarah Evangeline nn Sadie
Nathaniel nn Nate
