Tom's mother has 4 childrens, one is named as 7, 2nd is named as 19, other is named as 33. What could be the name of the 4th?

Names in this family have been coded using numbers; therefore Tom cannot be assumed to be the fourth child. The only thing we are sure of is that the code used is a definite sequence governed by some rule. The rule is:
19 - 7 = 12
33 - 19 = 14
x - 33 = 16
k - x = 18
etc

Their difference is an Arithmetic progression sequence
Fourth = x
x = 33 + 16 = 49

Therefore the fourth child is named (coded) as 49

If Tom is still alive, then the fourth child is called Tom. However, if Tom is dead, then the fourth child could be called 49.
Child One: 7
Child Two: 7 + 12 =19
Child Three: 19 + 14 = 33
Child Four: 33 + 16 = 49
