I like all of your choices! Oliver is a classic and, though others have pointed to the trendiness of your other favorites, they're not made-up names; they have a history.
If family opinion sways...

Depending on where you live, there may or may not be another little Lincoln on the school yard. That being said, I seriously doubt Lincoln will be as common as Jack, Henry, Will, Charles, or any...

Ezra and Violet! So much charm. I like the names you've been considering, and have some other suggestions...
Hugo - This is dashing and strong, befitting a little man and a mature gentlemen...
I'm a Catherine / Cate lover.
For whatever reason, you say Gareth, I say...
These are just my immediate reactions to the name, based on absolutely nothing because I've never met a Gareth....
Felix is a wonderful name!
We, too, have a Jane and are due any day with our little boy. We're still trying to decide on his name! I short-listed Felix but DH nixed it because our last name...
So yesterday I posted about how my wife and I were considering the name Arthur for our son who is going to be born some time in the next 2-3 days. We have since moved from Arthur to Archer (my wife...
Of your combos, these are my favorites, either for their flow or their adherence to the 2-3-1 syllable count...

Harvey certainly has a charm and could be adorable on a little boy (a la Howie or Huey); I can picture him in overalls with freckles.
But now I'm trying to picture a 32-year-old Harvey, and I'm...
Independent of one another, Harrison and Harper are fantastic names. But Harrison Harper (or the potential Harry Harper), is too much, in my mind.
Thank you for all of the feedback!
@alyssakate, I totally agree with you about Peter, but, alas, my DH's cousin has an honest claim to it since it's his name, his father's name, and his...
I agree with the others that Dean and Nora make a wonderful sib set.
Also, agree with you on the merits of Dean (to me, very rugged, very solid).
The nickname that came to mind at first was...
My wife and I are struggling to come up with a boy's name (our son is due in 3 days).
We like Henry a lot but are worried it's too popular. We thought a "Henry-like" name that wasn't as popular...
Jack Wilder is fantastic!
We cannot decide on a boys name.
Our son is one week past his due date, but at least it's buying us time to make a name decision.
Why is this so difficult?
After making several "Yes, this is...

Great names. Ultimately, I voted for Leland for its unique charm but un-obscure tone. Levi, George, and Luke seem so over-used lately, and Colton just doesn't resonate.
Deep breath @Rieleysmomma! Just trust that when you bring home your son, he'll have a name you love.
With our first, my husband decided last minute that he didn't love the name we'd chosen for...
What is your last name's syllable count?

Leopold was short-listed in this house, but we had to forfeit because of a family naming conflict.
Leopold goes great with Dashiell and Zelda, too!

Thank you for all of the responses!!
Your comments are so helpful. I will keep you posted on what we end up naming this little guy.
Remy is a great name and can stand on its own without the full-blown Remington (which is a little much, IMO).

Gideon and Simeon are my two picks from your list, both for the names in and of themselves, and boosted more so by their meanings.
Good luck and congratulations!
Classically, Avery has macho cowboy swagger.
Recently, I hear Avery used more for girls.
With all that being said, it works for both genders: it's not too girly, it's not too boy-ish.
I vote Easton Jacob. A bit more dashing, a bit more classic.
