    Please help naming our third son (fourth child)

    Hi all,

    We are absolutely stuck finding a name that fits our rules and we love for our fourth child. It will be our third son (daughter, twin boys and now another boy) and he was a bit of a surprise. I absolutely love all the names of our other children who all have long whimsical uncommon medieval kind of names so I am determined to give this surprise baby the same love and attention in naming him... but oh my...

    The “rules”
    - long name
    - not biblical
    - not starting with an A, F, C/K, L
    - rare

    Names that almost made it: Willoughby, but we feel it’s a bit to posh. Woodrow, but my husband can’t get used to it. Elijah, we love the feel of the name but it’s to biblical (and popular). Still contender that we like but don’t love: Beren, Thoralf, Wallace

    I will be eternally grateful for all options you think fit our family and might be the one for our little surprise. (Baby will be born in November or December - depending on month middle name will likely be Eden or Yule)

    i really like the name pax. it is latin for peace
    though it's short you could find a longer form. i couldn't find any longer forms so these are mostly made up. i think if you chose a latin word of your liking it could act as a suffix for pax?
    paximus
    paxel

    hope this helped.

    What are your other kids' names? It would help to know what you like.

    Here are my suggestions based on your rules:

    Gilead, Barnabas, Davin, Philemon, Perseus, Nicomedes, Oceanos, Eladio, Donatello, Pendleton, Wickham, Wyndham

    Based on the other names you like, Elwood jumped out to me. It's a great mix of Woodrow and Elijah
    Momma to boxer boy Rooney and baby girl Everly James
