A boy's name to go with Nina

We have a Nina and we are now expecting a son. We are finding ourselves totally uninspired by boys' names. Given we obviously liked Nina can anyone suggest what kind of boys names we might like?

Nina was on my girls list - we didn't go for it in the end. Our boys names were Dominic, Leo, Joseph and Dan smile

Nina is lovely.

Maybe Cameron, Francis, Lawrence, Toby?

I have a Nina. Dc2 turned out to be a girl, but on our boys list were

Robert/Robin/Robby
Magnus
John/Johnny

Lucky we had a girl tbh as nothing really grabbed us - & even dd2 was nameless for a week.

I also love Ezra, Eli & Solomon but DP wouldn't bite.

ok , so Nina is short, fairly unusual though well known, cool, and pretty and feminine. So applying that criteria ( obv swapping masculine for feminine) I would suggest names like

Myles

Milo

Theo

Leo

Saul

Finn

Luke

Steve

Nina and...

Laurence
Robin
Wilfred
Corin
Benedict
Gregory
Saul

I've gone with classic but not currently overly popular names in that list... But popular classics like Thomas, Benjamin and Samuel would be lovely too.

Nina and Tom, Nina and Sam, Nina and Benji... Getting carried away here smile

Fredrick sprang to mind - singing duo of the 50/60s - sounds good even now.

Thank you for all these ideas. Funnily enough some of my favourite names have been suggested, these are:
Joseph - but we cannot use this as our nephew is Joseph
Theo and Leo - but we cannot use either due to good friends having got there first
George - can't use it as it is another nephew
Lawrence/Laurie - I can't use this as I have an old friend called Nina and her ex is Laurie and that would be weird.
Alexander - I like this if we could use the diminuitive Sacha but DH thinks that is girly. I think Nina and Sacha is a lovely combo.
Reuben - maybe, maybe, not 100% sure
Fredrick - I do like Freddie but again not 100% sure.

Any other thoughts?

How about Saskia instead of Sacha?
