    Brother for Dagny

    We are expecting our second child, a boy, in January. We already have a two year old daughter named Dagny.

    We had a few girls names in the running (Himilsy, Aeronwen, and Auxerre) but are at a complete loss now for a boy's name.

    Previously considered but no longer in the running were:

    Euclid (we live in Cleveland and this name is tied to a city, a street, a beach, and so on. Therefore not very usable by us).

    Sherlock - Love the name and the nn Lock but I think it makes us sound like uber fans of either the BBC show or of naming our children from literature.

    Arrow/Aero - Still like but I don't think it quite works.

    As you can probably see, we're fairly adventurous namers so please no common-ish recommendations (the "Aidens" for example).

    I'd prefer to stay away from names starting with F and ending in en, in, or on. Our last name is Ferguson so I don't like how those names sound together.

    Thanks in advance!

    Whoa, you asked me to comment! I am a star here, aren't I? Let's see.
    First of all, I love Dagny. She makes me think of Grieg's music and it's lovely. Dagny Ferguson has the flowing g-s, I like it.
    Atlas came to mind but of course he is matchy.
    Well, Arrow is downmarket and trying-to-be-cool to me. Aires, maybe?
    Euclid is a cool guy but he doesn't quite go with sis. Sherlock is fun and lovable and I love him with Dags.
    Ideas:
    Henry(it's popular, yep but Dagny and Henry are so neat!)
    Rupert/Rufus
    Victor
    Archimedes
    Gilbert
    Pierce/Lars
    Wolfgang

    I employed Nymbler for some suggestion help, because I'm not terribly familiar with Dagny.
