Wow, definitely a tough one, but I may have stumbled upon the second word. There is definitely very little repetition of letters. Other than the second word, the remaining vowels seem to have been used only twice in one case, but only once for the other three. Am I on the right track?

Wow, I finally found one to stump pootie! :-)

Vowels are somewhat scarce in these. I think, though, that if you stumbled on the 2nd word, there would be no question that you'd immediately uncover the 1st and the 3rd.

If you just put your thinking hats on I'm sure you'll sort them out...

These are English names from a very well known piece of English literature.

They are three of a kind ... out of a total of four.
