Naming our 3RD BOY!!
Boy #3 will be arriving in a few months, and DH and I are scraping the bottom of the barrel for boy names. With our other 2 boys, the names came so easily. We just hope that we love our 3rd boy's name as much as we love our 2 other boys' names.
Our boys are:
Ezra (age 6) and Asher (age 4)
DH and I are not set on a theme, even though both of these names are biblical Old Testament names. The only criteria we have for names is: 1) has to be a real name that is not made up and has been around for 50+ years. 2) no weird spellings 3) I would like the name to sound different than our other 2 names and to start with a different letter (ex: I like Ezekiel but I think it's way too close to Ezra) 4) a name that isn't too uber popular would be great also :-)
Middle name will most likely be James (after his grandfather) and our last name has LOTS of Rs, so an R name probably wouldn't work
So here is our current list of names:
Milo (DH LOVES this name, I am hesitant because my good friend has a son with this name, even though she lives on the other side of the country)
This is really all we have. So sad! There are other names we like, but cannot use because close family members are already using the names (Henry, Oliver, Simon, Flynn, and Dashiell)
Please help us name this boy! Any other name suggestions or comments about our current names would be so appreciated!!

Levi and Caleb were my first thoughts. I'm not a fan of Milo. Do you think he'd go for Miles? I would also suggest Judah instead of Jude if you're planning on using James for the middle name. Judah James?

Milo is my favorite from your list, closely followed by Otis, but to be honest I prefer Jude with big brothers Ezra and Asher, I feel like another biblical name would work best. I second @southern.maple's suggestion of Levi.

Ezra, Asher & Moses
Ezra, Asher & Micah
Ezra, Asher & Gideon
