I think my preference for River on a girl comes from Doctor Who. I think I'm definitely gonna trash it as too close to Rigby for my tastes.
I'm loving all the suggestions especially Lake and Dylan (with the 'y' I'm afraid liviajoan ). Dylan is statistically way, way more popular than my tastes usually lean, but I've actually only run into one when I was in gradeschool and she was a girl.
I still like Calder/Caulder but the more I say it the more it sounds like cauter- you know cauterize?
I'm so picky! Please keep the suggestions coming!

I like Calder a lot. I met a guy once whose name was Caulder, so I'm not opposed to the spelling, although I do prefer Calder. While I like River for a boy, I like Rivers even more. I couldn't tell you why. Brooks is nice. What about:
Caspian (for the Caspian Sea. The Prince Caspian tie is pretty cool, too, I think)
Kai (means "ocean" in Hawaiian, I believe?)
That's about all I've got, and I'm sure both have been suggested. There's Oceane/Oceana for a girl, but I'm not sure there's a male alternative. I like the suggestion of Bay, too. I think that's sweet for a boy. Or Harbor/Harbour! How do you feel about Harbour? I think it's lovely, and like Harper, but with more masculine/nature ties... I think Bailey nn Bay is really fun, but most people don't share my love for Bailey on boys these days.
