Need name opinions!

We are having a hard time deciding on a name for our baby boy born July 3rd at 11 pounds 1 ounce, 21 3/4 inches and seems to have brown eyes and hair. He's super sweet and mellow and easy to please and happy.

1. Romulus Oberon (Daddys top pick)
2. Samuel Chase (Daughters top pick)
3. Gideon Jedediah (we all like these options to)

Or a combo of #2,3, I like #2,3 as well, not 1

Just wondering if anyone has an opinion or knows men or boys named these names and if they like it.

Thank you!!

If you have a Christian background, I would go with option 3. It isn't too common, it isn't unheard of, and it has a lot of good meaning (that is, the biblical Gideon was an incredible man!). Otherwise, I would go with 2, which has biblical meaning too, but it also is common in the secular realm. No offense to your DH, but I think option number one is not a good choice--too unusual and too hard to say and spell.

I actually like number 1 the most. Romulus sounds like a very wise name to me.

ETA: since he's here already, maybe try calling him by each one for a day and see which one fits the best.

I like the third choice best, especially since you all like it!

#2 is my fav. But go with #3 if you feel that is fitting him well! Good Luck

I like #3 the best too. 1 is a little too unusual for my taste.
