    Clara and Oliver are getting a sibling...and mama and daddy have no idea what to name

    Hub and I are expecting baby number 3 in October and are completely stumped for a name. Our 6 year old is Clara Margaret (boys name we had picked out was Ethan) our 3 year old son is Oliver Michael (girls name was olivia) we agreed on those relatively quickly, but can't agree on a name for either gender this time around! (Our nephews name is Ethan, so now that's out)

    Girls names we like:
    Elena (I love it, hub hates it)
    Camilla (don't love it, but my maiden name started with cami, and would love to include it in a kids name)
    Harper
    Ellery
    Anna
    Stella
    Audrey
    Vada
    Piper
    Phoebe
    Josephine
    Amelia (have a niece named Mia, worried that its too similar)

    Boys names
    Graham
    Colin
    Jack
    Bennett
    Quinn
    William
    Nathaniel
    Thomas
    Harry

    Our last name is 1 syllable and ends in s, which eliminates my long time favorite Lucas.

    Any advice, and mn suggestions would be helpful.

    Clara, Oliver, and...
    Elena - works for me
    Camilla - not usually my thing but kind of fantastic with Clara
    Harper - doesn't fit
    Ellery - doesn't fit
    Anna - marvelous! fits beautifully
    Stella - great name, not sure I like it with Clara--it feels different
    Audrey - I like this better with Stella than I do with Clara, but it's nice with Oliver
    Vada - doesn't fit
    Piper - doesn't fit
    Phoebe - very charming fit
    Josephine - oh yes, this is wonderful; I love the nn Josie with your kids
    Amelia - very nice fit, not too close to Mia in my mind

    Clara, Oliver, and...
    Graham - oh that's just fantastic
    Colin - I really adore this one
    Jack - fits nicely, great name, less surprising than Colin or Graham
    Bennett - fits very well, great name
    Quinn - it fits but I'm hesitating--not sure why
    William - fantastic with them
    Nathaniel - a good choice
    Thomas -- a good choice
    Harry - works very well, but I'd prefer Henry nn Harry

    What about Frederick? Diana also comes to mind.

    I like Audrey and Stella for the girls (and Amelia but it naturally lends itself to the nickname Mia which is out)
    Audrey is nice and classic like your other childrens names.
    Stella sounds like a classy version of all the other -ella names so prevalent.

    For boys I like Bennett, Quinn and Nathaniel.
    Nathaniel being my favorite
