When I think upperclass, my first thought is Algernon. I also think Percival, Eugene and Archibald. Potentially Nathaniel.

I really like Archibald and Nathaniel as brothers, I can imagine little Archie and Nate being complete brats, and then growing up to be snobs who insist on being called by the full names. I imagine Archibald is the elder, and Nathaniel is the younger. I can also picture, in an alternate universe, a much younger sister, no older than 4, named Florence, but affectionately called Flossie by her brothers. They adore her, but play up around everyone else. Imagination is on hyper drive tonight!

Names like James, George and Henry were really popular at that time, but also quite common, I can imagine their mother wanting her sons to sound really classy and important, and stand out.

Out of names I suggested, the other two I see working well as brothers are Algernon and Eugene. Eugene being the oldest.
