    Graham, Jack or Elliot

    My husband and I are both torn on our fourth and finally name for our child. I’ve loved the name Graham for forever, but my husband did not. For months The name Jack has been the top contender. Now we feel it may be too popular. My husband has now come back around to Graham and now I’m not so sure. He has also always liked The name Elliot too. The only reason I don’t prefer this name is that it resembles my daughter’s names too much.

    Siblings are Scarlett, Genevieve and Eliza. His middle name will be Thomas. Our last name is similar to Goodwin.

    I love Graham with your older kids names. I agree Elliot is too close to Eliza. And Jack seems too popular, I don't feel it fits.

    Graham is really handsome, I really can't choose between that and Elliot.
    I don't think Elliot is too close to Eliza since I say Elliot as EH-lliot and Eliza as EE-liza, but if that bothers you then Graham is also lovely. Jack feels overused to me.

    I think Graham goes so well with your other children's names. Elliot and Eliza do sound really similar to each other to me. I like Jack, but I feel like it doesn't really match your other children's names.

    I'd probably go with Graham (or Emmett if your cosidering alternatives). Graham fits nicely though

    I think Elliot is too similar to Eliza. I like Jack! Graham feels too alliterative if your LN starts with G and you have another child with a G name.

    Definitely Jack! It’s perfect with your daughters’ names and, to me at least, is a much spunkier name than Graham or Elliott.

    Elliot would have been my favorite but I do agree it's too similar to Eliza.

    I think Jack fits in very well with the sibling names and seems comparable in popularity to all of the sibling names as well. I don't think it's too popular to use.

    Graham seems out of place to me.

    Graham would be a good brother name for Scarlett, Genevieve, and Eliza!

    Although Jack and Elliot are good as well. Jack is just really common.
