I'm a big fan of Clark. I also really love Reid, but if one parent has bad associations, it's best to stay away from that. Finn and Drake are too trendy in my opinion, Craig sounds dated. Dean and Max are OK.
Here is a list I've made up of one-syllable FN options for boys: http://nameberry.com/userlist/view/31148Current favorites: Olive, Louise/Louisa, Magdalene/Madeline, Phillipa, Talitha, Mallory, Blythe, Eliza, Mercy, Talia; Calvin, Charles, Gideon, Abram, Jude, Reuben, George, Reid, Clark, Holden.

Well men are so silly sometimes.
I really like Max though. (Would consider a longer version myself if we didn't have two little Max's in the family already - Dr. Seuss never wrote about Thing Three so wouldn't want to risk that. ) I also really like Clark.
Dean, Craig, Drake, Drew, Finn & Reid/Reed are either nms or feel too trendy/nny for your sib-set.
Other suggestions: (I went to babynames.com their advanced search allows you to search by syllables - unlike NB it actually sticks to 1 syllable instead of doing 2 - I pulled out ones I thought would be great with Grant and Isla and underlined my favorites).
Brice/Bruce (Bruce could be easy to convince a man of I feel: I'm just saying: Batman)
Clint (though this might be weird with Grant)
Ken/Kent (though Kent might be weird with Grant)
Yates...if my husbands has no vote, then....
Endora & Lorelei / Dexter & Gideon
...we are newlyweds and not trying...yet...
