    Brother to Asa

    I'm seeking suggestions for our second son's name. Our 2-year-old is Asa William (first and middle, not a double first name), both are family names. We don't necessarily need to keep that up, but wouldn't want the new one to feel less belonging, so this one's middle name might be Merrill or John (family names) and the first name could be anything.

    Style:
    I like unusual, but not obscure or made-up names. Top-20 names are probably too common for the first name. (okay for the middle name, where we might use a family name)
    I like 2-syllable names, but wouldn't rule out others.

    Constraints:
    Can't end with the "k" sound because last name starts with the "k" sound.
    Can't end with the "ie", "ey", "ee" sound because last name ends with y.
    My name is one of the Christie, Kirsten, Christina, Krista names from the '80s and I don't like how it is so confusable for others. I want a name that is easy to hear and spell correctly.
    Along that vein, I'm very nervous about accidentally picking an up-and-coming name that blows up in popularity.

    Favorites at this point:
    Calvin
    Wyatt
    Levi (hubby doesn't like)
    Eli (common as nn for Elijah, but could come from another name or stand alone)

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    From your favoured names, I think Levi and Eli work best with Asa. I'm not sure if you'll like any of these, but here are some other suggestions:

    Inigo
    Viggo
    Lysander
    Aurelius
    Casimir
    Lucius
    Aymeric

    Good luck!
