HELP!! Baby boy due in 13 weeks, and we can't agree on any names!
My husband and I are expecting our first boy in July but can't agree on any names!
I love names with French history (due to my ancestry), however he thinks they all sound too girly....
We already have a daughter, named Ellysees and want to choose a name that is both unique and able to be shortened to a funky nickname.
Our surname rhymes with "Vessel"....and we are wanting two middle names to keep the tradition we have used with our daughter.
We don't have a particular style, and are open to suggestions...however are keen to avoid common popular names.
Some names that we both like but one of us doesnt 'love' are...
I know the perfect name is out there....we just need help finding it!

I like your naming style a lot. Aurelio is an amazing name, and my favorite from your list, though I quite like all of your stated options (except for maybe Saxon, not such a fan of that one). Cassius and Enzo would probably be my second and third favorites from your list. I don't know particularly which names come from a French background (though if you searched on behindthename.com on the French names list, you'd probably find a bunch of good ones in the mix). But based on the style of names you seem to like here are some possibilities you may or may not have thought about already (I'm not gonna limit my expression to specifically French names, just names that have a somewhat similar 'feel' to them):

Do you pronounce Ellysees like Élysées?
There are fantastic French boys names which don't sound feminine.
Victor (old Roman name meaning, of course, 'winner;' namesakes include Victor Hugo)
Corin (French variant of Quirinus)
Geoffrey (Chaucer, the French form of Godwin)
Jules (Verne; old Roman name)
Laurence (famous French saint, meaning 'of the laurels')
Tristan (it was an Old French romance, too)
