I can see how "loosing" a name after two years can be tough. It's like you have a whole relationship with that name and now are being told it's not going to happen. I'd say if you he really can't be swayed back, give yourself a little time to morn and then start the name hunt all over again. I'd start a fresh and figure out with your hubby what criteria you both agree on. (I personally really liked the biblical name to match his. Very sweet.)
If he's stuck on wanting William as a mn because it's a tradition and its too common for you how about suggesting and alternative you both might like. Willem, Wilhelm, Liam etc. (Liam would be a cool Irish link as well)....if my husbands has no vote, then....

Gabriel I feel you need to stay true to yourself. I think the compromise suggested by bibliophile of Gabriel Owen is a good one. For what it's worth, I almost didn't stay true to my heart with a name I had always loved for ds2 just because dh was unsure about it but I went with it anyway, and dh came round eventually and now loves his name as much as I do! I would have lived with serious name regret if I hadn't followed my heart. GL.
