I agree, they strike me as a little too matchy with the ending sound. I find Ronan a much more masculine name than Tristan (which isn't necessarily a good or bad thing, just depends on your style).
I love Ellis, Harrison, Reed, Julian, and Asa from your list. Ditto to the above suggestions of Ellis Reed or Ellis Walker.

We've got a week (or less) to go and are sticking with finalists James Yoder or William Reece. Thanks to Berries for the input so far! Both middle names are family last names.
My final question...

I have a Luke Russell, so I'm biased-- congratulations on your excellent choice :). I like Luke William best of what has been suggested. I think two syllable middles work best.
I like both Amelia and Eliza paired with Charles/Charlie. Milly is a great nickname for Amelia. For Eliza, Ellie and Charlie is a great combo. I don't dislike Hazel but I think the other two are more...

My pick is Elliot. Gorgeous. But even with one boy and another on the way, husband doesn't like it so I can't use it!

Ro and Theo are great, but as I say a lot, I don't think there's any need to predetermine a nickname before baby is born. A nickname may emerge on its own, or it may not--you can let the little guy's...

I really like all three names. Juliet and Susanna don't seem to go as well with Everly because the latter name is very modern/trendy, while the other two are classic/vintage. I think Merritt is the...
I love your classic taste! Gorgeous names all around. Congratulations.
I love love love Elliot, but my husband does not. I think it's intelligent, warm, and familiar without being common. We're about to have a second boy and he may be named James, so I obviously love...
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....
