Unusual (but not made up) boy's name

So we are having DS2. Thrilled apart from the slog that is finding a name that DH and I actually both like. We stupidly gave DS1 both names we eventually agreed on as a first and middle name, rather than saving one for any future children.

We are so rubbish with names at this point, we are even calling the bump the same pet name we call DS1 with the term "little" in front of it. Ooops.

So that DS2 actually gets a name, could anyone help?

Neither of us is a fan of traditional English names (no Harry, James, William etc). Nice names but not for us. I am not British by origin and our DS1 has a family name from my country - think Eastern Europe somewhere.

I don't want a made-up name but looking for something that is a bit unusual. If it has an Eastern European flavour, that helps. Any ideas?

I like Sasha, Mischa, Antonin and Laszlo.

Also (though not E. European but may fit your bill) I like Dashiell.

All Hebrew ish, which you seem to favour (we do too).

Asher means happiness in Hebrew. Was on our list.

How funny bear we were discussing Dashiell the other day as I liked it. DH liked the fact you could maybe be called "Dash" which sounded cool. smile

Dashiell is great and Dash would be a very cool nickname for boy of all ages! There's some great names on these lists. It's celtic names all the way for us (OH is Scottish and my family are all Irish and I've got an Irish name) but if it werent I'd be trying to force some of these into the list!
