    What would you name a brother of Gideon and Callister?

    I'm looking for names for my boys list, I have so many girls names but I have a hard time finding boys names I love. My favorites are Gideon and Callister, but after that I'm lost! I can find problems with every boys name I like and consider adding to my list. So far I'v considered
    Boone- only one sylible, and Gideon and Callister are already different styles, Boone doesn't seem similar at all!
    Rueben- ends with -n like Gideon, too similar to my ears
    Malcolm- Mal is to similar to Cal
    Alaric- same as Malcolm, plus it starts with "A" as does my second favorite girls name
    Ambrose- seems soft to me and starts with A, plus there's no good nn
    Ezekiel- starts with E as does my favorite girls name
    Evander- starts with E, ends with r like Callister
    Asher- starts with A, ends with r, popular right now
    Everett- starts with E and seems trendy

    So any suggustions? I also want names that have easy nicknames, like Gid for Gideon and Cal for Callister.
    ~ Elisabeth Odelia "Elsie" ~ Gideon Boone ~
    ~ Adelheid Ruby "Addie Rue" ~ Theodore Solomon "Teddy"~
    ~ Casilda Josephine "Cassie Jo" ~ Zaccheaus Westley "Zeke" ~

    I've only heard Alaric pronounced Uh-lar-ick. So it wouldn't start with that Cal, Mal, etc sound. And it could have Rick as a nickname if you like.

    We have a Gideon and soon to have a Calvin, here are some of the names we have tossed around, don't know if it'll help.

    Dashiell (Dash)
    Phineas (Finn)

    Thanks for the ideas!
    mamabear87 - I like Atticus but I think the first sylible is a little too close to Adelheid. I like the idea of Mordicai, (Esther is one of my favorite Bible women) but I'm not crazy about the sound and I can't think of a good nn to go with it. Thanks for the correct pronunciation of Alaric, that definantly makes me reconsider it.
    mbrow222 - I knda like Thaddeus, it's one I shall have to ponder. I like Beckett too, but it seems tredy to me.
    Any more suggustions? Any ideas of nicknames for Mordicai?

    I really like the nickname Kai or Cai (pronounced Ky) for Mordicai.
