Ezra is a great suggestion! It's less "out there" than Ezekiel and has a more current feel! But, to put it all in perspective I looked up the popularity numbers on these names.
Ezekiel: #198 and down slightly from last year
Ezra: #184 and on a steady climb
I think if you don't love Preston, it should stay on as a middle name only.
It's a girl coming in March!

I agree...Levi is a good fit, but just here recently I am hearing it a whole lot. So now I'm rethinking that one. Ugh, why is this so hard!!! I just want a strong, simple name...not too popular, but not weird. I know we'll find one, but it's starting to stress me out a little. I've gotta come up with a good one that my husband will love that way he'll be totally good with not using Preston as the first name.
Thanks again everyone. It's nice to try to figure all this out with you. We always keep the name a secret so it's great to talk to someone about it...especially since I'm struggling so much!!
Thanks, thanks, thanks!!!!

I can see you leaning towards Levi and Levi Preston is a good combo but here are a few more names to consider although the brilliant berries have probably listed them already.
Ethan This is popular and easily recognised has a nice melodic sound
Jesse I like this one even though it has faded from popularity somewhat
Toby I love this one also its variants Tobin and Tobias
Seth This is a strong, manly name and is the one syllable kind of name that you seem to like
Eli a well loved name and could also be a nn for Elliott which is very smart
Asher I love this one although it is enjoying a rise in popularity
Simon this is always the cool, handsome dude for me
Jacoby it is close to Jacob but has the nn of Coby that may appeal to you
Luke or Lucas are always in style
Amos and Boaz these great old testament characters deserve more attention
Nathan nn of Nate a little dated but still very likeable
Thomas Once upon a time quite popular but now a surprising choice which I like as who could not like a boy named Tom?
Jared this is one I have liked for ages
Josiah I love the flow of this name although I am not a fan of Joe
and here is a list of random other names
Phineas or Finn/Finley/Fintan
Mother to Miles and Jacquelyn, and Nanny to five grandchildren
