Wow, these are some great suggestions!
I share the concern that June is very short compared to the older siblings.
I've gotten stuck on Magnolia & Georgia recently also. I don't know that I have the nerve though.. we live in the northeast US. Is it weird to use a name with such obviously southern charm? Of course, I already used Charlotte - but I wasn't really thinking of South Carolina when we chose it.
Magnolia sounds a bit over-the-top Southern to me, but Georgia doesn't. Charlotte and Georgia just sound like classic feminizations to me...
Thank you all for the suggestions, no baby yet - I'll update when it arrives & we finally make a decision!
I love your girls names. I think June is a little short though.
Can I also say I love that you're "not nickname people"? I'm not exactly a nickname person myself. I'm tempted to suggest Margaret, but it's too close to other names.
Other formal names:
I like Arthur!
I love your girl's names Charlotte and Matilda, they are both strong names and yet they are very feminine too.

I think I would choose Henry James or Harry James for a son, it is a perfect match with the girl's names.
I am not a fan of Arthur as it reminds me of arthritis and I love Oscar Wilde I think it is a possibility for you but the name is just not as lovable as the girl's names.
Have you considered Alistair/Alister? I think this is a terrific name, very usable and handsome and a great match.
If you wanted to step outside the box a little I think the middle name of Wilder for a son with a classic first name would work brilliantly, eg. Tristan Wilder.
Update! It's a boy!
We joyfully welcomed our first son into the world on June 17th. He joins big sisters Charlotte Noelle & Matilda Marie.
The name we finally chose is: Oscar Fjord! (My husband is a geologist).
Thanks to all for inspiration & suggestions!
I live in the NE and I know a couple of Georgia's and it doesn't seem out of place at all. I don't think of it as Southern, I see it as a classic feminization of George.
