    Final three, maybe?

    I'm down to three names left on my list of potential boy names. My problem is I'm just not super in love with any of them? I like them, but none of them have made me go "YES! That one!"

    My last name is very long, German, and starts with an S.

    Benjamin Thomas
    Oliver Ishmael (or Oliver Thomas)
    Henry Ishmael

    He'd have an honorary uncle Ruben, who usually goes by Ben, so I like Benjamin for the cute nickname opportunities. In general I just like more old-fashioned names.

    Which one is your favorite? Any suggestions?
    Considering:

    Charlotte Isabella | Evelyn Rose | Esther Charlotte | Esther Rose | Evelyn Charlotte

    Benjamin Joseph | Daniel Joseph | Daniel Thomas | Joshua Thomas

    I really like Oliver Ishmael. Ishmael is so unexpected and compliments them all so well.

    Oliver Benjamin or Henry Benjamin would also be a nice ode to Ruben.

    I adore Henry and Oliver. Personally Henry edges out Oliver because it’s my dad’s middle name. Oliver is also a family name though. I’ve had Henry Oliver, Henry Oliver Birch, Oliver Henry, and Oliver Henry Birch on my list for a long time.

    Of all five combos (including the two you later added into the mix) my favourite just has to be Henry Ishmael, with Oliver Ishmael right on its tail. These two are just fantastic -- Ishmael is beautifully unexpected.
