    That's funny; I find boys' name much easier than girls'!

    Surname names to consider:

    Winslow
    Sullivan
    Abbott
    Carlisle
    Bradford
    Brennan
    Chase
    Hartwell/Hartford (nn Hart)
    Jefferson
    Any ln beginning with Mc or Mac, as it would lend itself to "Mac" as a nn

    Other all-boy names that leap to mind when reading your list:

    Curtis/Kurt
    Kent
    Clark
    Dirk
    Frederick
    Damon
    Tristan
    Lee
    Mitchell
    Blaine
    Blaise
    Guy
    Dean

    I don't think Lincoln is going to turn unisex any time soon. As a girls name, it's not even ranked in the top 1,000 names, nor has it been since records started being kept in 1890. Contrast that with its #132 rank as a boy's name. It's about as all-boy as it gets. It even has a boyish nickname "Link" (or "Linc") as a safeguard. If you and your husband both like Lincoln, I'd say go with that.

    Yeah I think Lincoln is extremely masculine. I've known girls named Henry (not short for Henrietta, her name was Henry), James (she went by Jimmy), and Micheal (not Michelle), I have also known 2 female Tristans. To me Wilder runs more a risk of being a unisex name. Any time you name a child a surname or an unusual name, there is a chance that both sexes have used the name.

    Congratulation on your surprise!

    My suggestions are these

    Eric- Short but strong. A classic that is not overused

    Malachi- I like the pronunciation Ma-la- kai. You could call him Kai for short.

    Cillian or Killian- Similar in feel to Silas.

    Rider- Similar to Wilder, but with Ry as a nickname.

    Of course with since you already have a Westyn I feel like an Easton, or North might be in order.

    I realize this name is a bit more out there but I actually really like nature names for boys. Personally I love the name Cypress for boy. Cy for short.

    Also while I think of Lost often when I say the name, that reference would fade by the time the boy is old enough for school. I really like Locke. You could also do Loche, as in a Scottish lake.

    Finally like to suggest Wyatt. Very masculine name, that would go well with Westyn.

    Congratulation no matter what.
