Thanks everyone. We're going to take Elliot off the list, I think it's too close to Harriet and my husband will have to come round to only using it as a middle name if at all. Interesting that Samuel and Oliver seem to be the two favourites. We were seriously considering Samuel with the twins, if they had been boy/boy we'd have used Joseph and Samuel, and we had a tough decision which one to use out of the two for our son anyway.
Would it seem like we're giving this baby a 'leftover' name if we use a name we'd previously considered for an older sibling? That's my main worry with using Samuel, as much as I love it, I don't want him to think we didn't put any thought into coming up with a new name for him.My lovely trio: Harriet, Abigail and Joseph

No its not leftover at all! I think you should look at it as not being able to use both names you loved before!

I don't think it's leftover but it's kind of funny how it feels that way, isn't it? That somehow there just isn't a baby named Samuel and it's not really available this time. But I think that's just in the mommy brain not how it would seem to your son or others.
I actually love Elliott with your kids and don't find it too close to Harriet. But I see it's off your list. From the others, I like Edward and Samuel.
