It seems like you and your husband both really love Hugo and can picture it on your son. That sounds like to me that it's a winner. If you keep coming back to it again and again, there's a reason for...
I like Desmond best of your list. Seems like a handsome, intelligent, gentelmanly name. Heath and Jonah have similar images in my head.
I think Lennard would be constantly misspelled as compared...
With about seven weeks to go, we're down to these two contenders. Both middle names are family names. Thanks for your votes! Here's hoping he looks like one of these two names, otherwise, we'll have...
Another vote for Julian!
My fave off-the-beaten-path Southern boy name is Townes. Surnames also have a Southern feel, names like Lawson or Candler.
Thanks, all! Russell is a family name as well, so I do like the idea of both boys having a family middle name (which, of our list, would be Yoder or Reece). I wish I liked the sound of James Reece...
This is our final-ish list. Let me know your fave! Thanks!
James Yoder (family MN)

I like Ellis for a boy, but if your gut tells you it's not right, that's reasonable. I think Silas has a very similar sound and is more definitively masculine.

I've posted a few times in the last few weeks on our search for boy #2's name. Brother is Luke Russell. I thought my husband and I had narrowed to William or James, but I think we're...
@candancemarie, it's funny you say that because my husband is another gospel name (in addition to Luke) so we figured we needed to avoid the other two yet unused gospel names! Okay with another...

I can sympathize! We're expecting our second boy and the name conversations are so stressful. I'd agree with other commenters that you shouldn't worry overly much about a matching sibset. I think as...
Agreed that Faolan will be often mispronounced but is also the more attractive. Probably have to decide if aesthetic appeal/Gaelic roots are more important to you, or whether ease of pronunciation is...
My nephew Oliver has a brother Graham--those seem to be very stylistically in line. Maybe a long shot for you but worth a try!
Much prefer Eliza. Theodora strikes me as very heavy, though I agree the nickname potential is excellent! Thea is a great nickname, though if it were me I'd just choose that as the formal name.
I love Mira. I like Mira Quinn best of the options you listed. Some other ideas:
And I like Mira Josephine suggested earlier in the thread....
Elizabeth would have been either son's name had he been a daughter! Beautiful name :)
I was hoping for a Reed/Reid or Reece as a brother for Luke, but husband is not loving those options. Reece is still in play as a middle name.
The two we can agree on are William and James. He's...
I vote for letting a nickname emerge on its own after he's born! Once the family gets to know him, he may much more clearly be a Ben than a Brick or vice versa, or maybe a Brett after all.
We have just found out our second is a boy! He will join brother Luke. I'm really liking the "Re" names, specifically Reid or Reed, Reeve, and Reece. Reece is a family name so we would spell it that...
A few that come to my mind:
Another vote for Dean--Dean and Grant is such a great sounding brothers combo. And agreed with others that Lawton is much too preppy/trying too hard. Good luck!

My favorite question, ha! Lately:
I really appreciate all the thoughtful comments. This has made me feel better about the negative associations. Thanks!
Yes, we're in Austin where there are some pretty out there hipster baby names, so one this classic probably won't even register :)
