    I love the suggestions of Leolin/Leoline, Rowan, and Kiran/Kieran/Ciaran.

    I also want to say that I know a guy named Hansen whose name is sort of an Anglicanized version of his Chinese name which is probably something like han-xien, if that makes sense. I think that is an awesome choice as well!

    You could also possibly do Joseph nn Joey (which should sound like zhou yi, right?).

    Ivan kind of sounds like ei fan. Dylan/Dillon could be de lan.

    Best of luck!

    Javad, I applaud your research and your efforts! It's an unusual husband that will go to all that work to ensure his baby has the perfect name!

    I'm going to give this a go...apologize in advance if these are unusable, I'm completely unfamiliar with Chinese.

    Oisin (o-SHEEN; You Xin) - Irish for "little deer", a Celtic hero from the epic Tir na nOg
    Lucien / Lucian (LOO-shun or LOO-see-ahn; Lu Xun or Lu Xi Yan) - French / Latin meaning "light"
    Milan (MEE-lahn; Ming? or Mei? Lan) - Sanskrit meaning "unification, union, or coming together" which I love, since you're striving for unity on this name decision. Also a city in Italy, means "kind, loving, and gracious" in Slavic and "eager, laborious" in Ancient Roman
    Kishan (ki-SHAHN; Ke Shan) - a modern form of Krishna, meaning "black, dark" in Sanskrit
    Matthias (muh-THY-us; Ma Tai) - Matteo, Matthias, etc are all variants of Matthew, which means "gift of God" in Hebrew
    Caius nn Cai (KYE-us nn KYE; Kai) - I love Kai. It's Hawaiian for ocean, similar to your wife's favorite, and Caius would be a great way to bring in the ancient Roman sound. Caius means happy. There's also Malachi as a way to get to Kai...you could even do Ma Li Kai which is slightly different pronunciation, but still really close. Malachi is one of my favorite names...it means "my messenger" or "my angel"

    I can see your dilemma!! This is really difficult, I've been browsing for a good while now and only have a paltry seven names to suggest
    Zion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Ender _____ ~ Caspian _____ ~ Tobias _____
    Alice Willow ~ Ophelia Fawn or Ophelia Wren ~ Lucia Pearl ~ Eve Wisteria nn Evie ~ and second-guessing River Selene

    GPs
    Cirina Wryn, Narnia Rose, Luna Seraphine, Parthenia Nyx, Astoria, Illyria, Gwyneira, Farasha, Serafina, Senara, Soraya, Faerydae
    Orion Melchior North, Tobias Loki, Edmund, Frost, Oberon, Hawthorne, Kenshin, Bastion, Remiel, Atreyu
