    I like:
    Noam, Ari, Zev, Tzvi, Gilad, Aryeh for Jewish but not strongly Biblical.
    and
    Gideon, Naphtali, Ephraim, Ezra, Mordecai, Malachi, Phineas, Zebulon, Hezekiah, Azaria - the semi-quirky Biblical names I like.

    Actually I don't know if you'd count Aharon or Reuven, etc. as uncommon or not. Aaron and Reuben are mainstream, but are those? Zevulun probably didn't get much weirder than Zebulon is anyway. I'm fond of Gavriel.

    Jethro I've heard called hickster, Yitro is definitely uncommon, I like both.

    Meir (pronounced like Meyer)

    I know a 3 year old Meir and he's the cutest thing!

    Also not Jewish, but I cannot get over Avi. I've loved it for a long long time.

    I'll third the notion not to use Cohen.

    On my list when I was pregnant: Judah, Benjamin, Ariel, Azariah, Micah, and Jonah. I have friends who have sons named Eli, Rafael, Lev, and Yossi.

    Good luck!
