Why are boy's names so difficult?!

I have a wonderful list of names as long as my arm if my baby turns out to be a girl, but I am really struggling to think of even a couple of boys names I really like!
Boys names are either too common for me (as in too many people will have the same name), or they are just a bit too modern or American sounding for me.

Please help me start thinking of some boys names for a potential brother for Samuel (Sam); our surname is Ryan.

Names I have considered for a boy are:

Joseph (but hate Joe)
Dillon/Dylan (too trendy right now?)
Fraser
James (too commonplace?)
Coby (too American?)
Daniel (hate Dan!)
Lucas
Evan/Ewan (we're not welsh?)
Douglas
Rupert (but don't like alliteration names)
Toby (too trendy right now?)
Cameron (love this name, but brothers called Sam and Cam?!?)

Thanks for your ideas!

I adore Samuel and have always thought that Samuel and Joseph fit perfectly.

Adore Sebastian but i think seb is too similar to sam sorry. What about Jed? You could use the NN Kit for christian. Sam and Kit. Rex is quite nice too.
