    Lightbulb Looking for boy name ideas! Help?

    Been researching baby names for years and now that I'm pregnant, I need help! Our favourite boy names happen to be popular ones, where as we've already agreed on Leona for a girl. I want help thinking of a name that can be used if we have a boy this time or next.

    Husband and I went through a book and he picked these: Adrian, Aiden, Anakin, Artemis, Edric, Elias, Ethan, Evan, Kano, Marcus, Rowan, Silvanis, Wesley, Issac, Bran, Cameron, Kieran, Dorian, Dylan, Forrest, Gareth, Liam, Riley, Ryan, Vincent, Xavier

    The only ones I would actually pick also happen to be the more popular ones (Evan, Marcus, Adrian, Liam, Ryan). So, just thought I would reach out and get some suggestions for solid names we may not have seen yet.

    1-3 syllables maximum as our last name is a 5-syllable Spanish name. We like animal and nature-y names, something with a good meaning and can be from international origins. I like Hawaiian names, husband likes Irish and Swedish, so mostly anything goes. We like A, E, K, L, M, and R names.

    And, btw we live in New Zealand so different trends here. Still curious to see what advice you have for me!

    Oh I don't even know where to start. Thanks in advance for any ideas! <3

    Off that list I LOVE Artemis for a girl (I don't think it is a boys name) and for boys:
    Cameron
    Rowan
    Ciaran (I do prefer this spelling)
    Liam

    I suggest Xander for you.

    [ Ottilie ][ Emeline ][ Llio ][ Grace ][ Edie ][ Miriam ]

    Leona is one of my favorite names. Lovely choice! I don't know how popular it is in New Zealand but it's fairly unusual in the U.S. so I think that should be taken into mind when picking a sibling's name.

    My favorites from your choices are Adrian (although some may find it too feminine), Ethan (although it is very popular), Bran (can't find a fault except the fact that it is one syllable and a bit nickname-y), Keiran (maybe seen as too feminine again), and Forrest (pairs wonderfully with Leona).

    Other options:
    August
    Arden
    Caspian
    Makani
    Kai
    Elikai
    River
    Wolf/Wolfe
    Ronan
    Silas
    Stellan
