    What about Edmund, Adelaide, and Lyle?

    You'll get there, and it will all be fine!

    (sorry for any repeats)
    I do think Atticus is becoming more popular but I still think I sounds really good with Edmund and Adelaide.
    I am not familiar with Victorian names so I looked it up and I tried to pick more uncommon ones since you said you have searched for a bunch.
    Henry
    Elijah
    Simon
    Nathaniel
    Asa
    Byron
    Reuben
    Simeon
    Thaddeus (instead of Theodore)
    Ulysses (nickname could be Sully)
    Dorian
    Tobias
    Lawson
    Miller
    Luther
    Wyatt
    Archie (instead of Archibald)
    Claude
    Edgar
    Floyd
    Raymond
    Warren

    Other names that are similar to the names you suggested-
    Peregrine
    Oberon

    Bartholomew (nicknames: Bart, Tolly)
    Sebastian (nicknames: Bash, Sebby, Bastian)
    Leland
    Solomon
    Linus
    Malachi
    Kai

    Other vintage, uncommon names-

    Wilbur
    Truman
    Samson
    Malcolm
    Moses
    Julian
    Jethro
    Hugh
    Gordon
    Fletcher
    Conrad
    Cassian
    Cassius (pronounced cass-ee-us or cash-us. If you used the cash-us pronunciation, his nicknames could be Cash)

    I think Atticus is great and goes very well with your other children's lovely names. I don't think Atticus is too popular. It seems to be more used in US than elsewhere but still not popular. I do love your style and love many on your list - Rupert, Clement and Wifred being favourites.

    Probably already suggested but I like these and think they work:

    Caspar
    Victor
    Roderick
    Maximillian
    Rufus
    Lucius
    Julius
    Tobias
    Bertram
    Bernard
    Hector
    Digby
    Willoughby
    Wilkin
    Hubert

    I like Atticus. It’s gaining some hipster popularity, but in all seriousness, how many people REALLY are obsessed with names like us folk on here? I think you’re fine!

    I really like August and Ulysses. Vincent and Silas are super handsome too!

    I think Atticus can work! It's considered vintage, which fits well with the sibset.

    Love that August made your list! I was loving it for the continuous "u"'s that appear in both Edmund & August! I also do love Atticus, and while I see it on name lists more often recently, I've yet to actually meet one! I don't think you can go wrong either way & cannot wait to see what you choose

    If Atticus is sticking and won't leave you then maybe that's what it's meant to be. It will never be so popular that there are 4 in his class but he likely will meet another one at some point. That's ok I think.

    My son is Jasper and that is kind of Victorian and he's 6 and I haven't found that it's overused even though it's high on the nameberry rankings. I have heard it once in the mall in reference to another kid about age 8 and then in the Santa line the MOTHER of the kids in front of us was named Jasper and that is it in 6 years! And it was like the #1 name for a while on nameberry.

    I would go with Atticus if it's what you like best and let your husband have his pick of a middle name and let go a little bit because there's no perfect name and you'll be happy you picked the one you liked best.

    But for fun:
    Jasper

    These are from the top 100 at turn of the century 1900s:
    Hugh
    Perry
    Roy
    Raymond
    Earl
    Oscar
    Leon

    Let us know what you pick!

    Not sure if anyone has suggested this to you yet but what about Oleander? It has the 'ander' ending of Evander, the 'Ol' beginning of Oliver that your husband likes. You can also nickname him Ollie. ETA - Just saw Leander was on your list but vetoed, but maybe Oleander is a little different?
