    I chose Elijah. We must have the same taste in names, b/c I love your son's name and all 3 of your choices! (Buttsniffer... not so much hahaha!)

    I think Gus is SO cute... but I don't totally love the names you have picked here. They are all kind of popular right now, Elijah was ranked #30 last year, Isaac #41, and Lucas #53. While Augustine wasn't even in the top 1000!

    I would try to find a similar name, strong and classic, but not too popular. Like Lucius (not in top 1000) Lucian (# 774) or Julius (#302). I guess Augustine reminds me of the emperor Augustus, so I kinda like Roman/Latin names with it. I like Lucius, you could call him Lou... Gus and Lou?
