Help us expand our boys name list (A sibling for Nirvana)
Hi! I'm new (after lurking for a long time!). I am pregnant with my second child and my C-section is scheduled for next Thursday! We don't know the gender, and we have a 1.5 year old girl called Nirvana Kate, who gets nicknames Niva/Niv most of the time. We like unusual first names (obviously) and short, simple, normal middle names.
Like we did with our daughter, we plan on taking a ton of names with us and deciding after the baby is born and we have spent some time with the baby. We do have favourites, though. For a boy, we're currently liking:
Aberdeen - This is a family name, but we're unsure about nicknames. Deen/Dean is an obvious one which my husband isn't keen on. Would Abe work? The middle name might be Jett, and my husband is keen on the NN AJ.
Winslow - We love the NN Win for this.
Cairo - With the NN Cai/Kai or Ro, possibly.
Lorenzo (NN Ren)
But we're having trouble imagining us actually using any of these names. my DH says that we'll be sure when we meet him/her but I can't help but think that we'll make the wrong decision so I thought I'd ask for some suggestions! We're not to concerned about having too many names as we had about 30 names on our list for when our daughter was born!
What would you name Nirvana's possible brother? Throw some weird/uncommon ones at us!
EDIT: Forgot to add, the middle name will be either Lewis, Ross, Jett, Neil, Max or Henry.

This is totally not my style, but my goodness I am in love with Aberdeen. It is so handsome and I can totally see it on a little one and a grown man. I think I would be inclined to go with Deen/Dean as the nn, but I do think Abe would work as well. And depending on your last name and how it sounds, I think any of your mn possibilities would work with it.
Winslow is okay, but Cairo is interesting, especially with the nn Cai.
I do really like Lorenzo, but I would suggest Enzo as the nn - so cute!
All the others are no-goes for me... except maybe Dante...
Leonidas nn Leo
Caroline Frances Luna ~ Clarity Anneliese Kate ~ Josephine Louisa Danielle
Marilyn Lucille ~ Rosemary Margaret Jayne ~ Seraphina Ruby Elizabeth
David Theodore John ~ Elijah Laurence Rhys ~ Ezra William Beau
Frederick Benjamin Roger ~ Julian Samuel James ~ Logan Christopher Knightley
Literary GP Combos
Charlotte Pemberley Jane ~ Philippa Austen Rose
Expecting Spring 2016!

I'm not a fan of Aberdeen because I feel it's too well known. I do really like Nirvana Kate and Sterling Max or Winslow Ross, both are lovely.
Seeing as you have quite a few place names on you list I thought I would suggest some Scottish place names, Harris, Stornaway, Oban (oh-bin), Inverness, Kintyre. I personally think Nirvana and Kintyre would make a lovely sib-set. I found the website with some other Scottish place names and I thought you might want to have a look http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_...ic_place_names.
