    Looking for unexpected, stunningly handsome fairly uncommon yet familiar boy names

    I have a hunch this baby might be a boy. Boy's names have always been harder for us than girls names. If this is a boy, he will be our first -- we haven't had to actually use a boy's name yet.

    Big sisters are Adelaide, Isla, and Eloise.

    We like names that aren't trendy, aren't too popular, but aren't too unusual either; however, I think we'll probably go with a boy's name that is higher in popularity than our girls' names (which all seem to be skyrocketing anyways!).

    Names we've tossed around: Edmund, Eamon, Charles . . .well, that's kind to it right now.

    Names we like but won't use for various reasons (popularity, already used by friend or family member, pronunciation, etc.): Liam, Josiah, Silas, Oliver, Matthias

    I almost decided that Jack was the perfect name for us until I realized that it rhymes with the first syllable of our 2 syllable last name, so it's out!

    So, can some berries help me out? Should this baby be a boy. I want a strong, handsome name that is somewhat unexpected, uncommon, yet familiar -- is that too much to ask? : )

    Oh, just wanted to add that probable middle(s) are William and Frederick (this has been considered for the first name spot, it's our back-up in case we can't agree on anything else). These are both family names.

    Alarik or Alaric would both fit this, although they may not sound fabulous with Frederick. Alarick(c) is unique while still being somewhat familiar due to the eric sound.
