    Please suggest some alternatives

    Below are the boys' names I can see myself using. Can you please suggest some alternatives? It feels like a very tired list. I've been so fixated on choosing a girl's name for our next child that I haven't thought at all about boy names. If our first child had been a boy she would have been named Finn.

    Finn
    Noah
    Shane
    Jack

    Thanks! I'm very comfortable treading off the beaten path for girl names but sadly not for boys so much and would love some help.

    Repeats are a sign it's a good fit : D! But I'm sure I like some of pp's I didn't think of when I went through this.

    Finn - Flynn, Flint, Owen, Liam (or William nn Liam), Miles, Rhys, Quinn (but going feminine), Phinneas, Nolan, Evan, Ewan
    Noah - Jonah, Judah, Micah, Joel, Joseph, Noam, Nolan, Seth, Boaz (nn Bo?), Asher, Isaiah, Josiah (nn Joe?), Elijah (nn Eli?)
    Shane - Zane, Seamus, Ian, John, Shea, Evan, Ewan
    Jack - John (nn Jack), James (nn Jack), Jackson (though I prefer Jack), Brock, Joseph (nn Joe), Mack, Malcolm nn Mac, Cormac nn Mack

    Hope this helps! One trend for both Finn and Shane are: short Gaelic names that end in -n, and you may want to look at lists of Gaelic names or use super search to continue that hunt. Good luck!

    To go with jesba's suggestion of Ewan and Gaelic names, what about Eamon?
