    If we have a boy, he'll be nameless forever!

    I'm due in 6 weeks and are not even close to narrowing down any boy names if we have one. We have 2 girls, Kaya and Taryn, last name is pronounced WEENZ. I think it's the last name that's jinxing it. I'll find something I like and it won't go with our last name..... I'm open to any and all suggestions except extremely popular names (like the Bradens, Cadens, Jadens - not my style), or way out-there names. Family names we'd consider incorporating but not mandatory (variations welcome) are Michael, Sean, Arthur, or Lou. Any suggestions? Help!

    You have some great family names to incorporate - especially Arthur and Sean. Michael is fine but has been very popular, and Lou is a little insubstantial and gender ambiguous for me - you could use Louis or Lewis to honour Lou.

    Recognisable but uncommon names to go with Taryn and Kaya and the surname WEENZ:
    Asher
    Benjamin
    Callum
    Conan
    Damian
    Edmund
    Eli
    Gareth
    Ivan
    Joseph
    Keith
    Luca
    Miles/Milo
    Nathan(iel)
    Patrick
    Reuben
    Zach(ary)

    Sean is a form of John, so it has a lot of variations.
    Other forms of John & Sean:
    Evan
    Ian
    Ivan
    Jack
    Shane

    Miles and Milo are variants of Michael, but I'd stay away from anything that sounds like a unit of measurement with a last name like WEENZ!

    Here are some other random ideas I had:
    Brennan
    Daniel
    Everett
    Owen
    Griffin
    Morgan
    Andrew
    Brett
    Nolan
    Dylan, Dillon
    Collin
    Alec
    Joshua
    Dalton
    Logan
    Devin

    I also liked a lot of the suggestions posted above. I think boys are hardest to name too! Good luck!

    Kaya and Taryn are short and contemporary, I wouldn't go with something to different. Personally I love Louis to honour Lou but I'm not sure it would work in that subset.

    Some ideas:
    Kaya, Taryn, Axel
    Kaya, Taryn, Blaise
    Kaya, Taryn, Blaine
    Kaya, Taryn, Emmet
    Kaya, Taryn, Evan
    Kaya, Taryn, Grant
    Kaya, Taryn, Harley
    Kaya, Taryn, Luca
    Kaya, Taryn, Pax
    Kaya, Taryn, Roan
    Kaya, Taryn, Soren
    Kaya, Taryn, Zane
    Arabella, Thibault, Sophia, Alfred, Eleanor, Rémi, Charlotte, Achille, Olivia, Clement, Elizabeth, Frederick, Maud, Benedict, Adèle.
