Different but not silly names

HELP!
I need suggestions on unusual names, but I don't want anything that sounds silly. I did like the name Trey, but as I have found (after asking opinions in a previous post) it isn't really the best name for a white, middle class English boy...

My husband likes Rhys and Ty. I love Asher, but my husband hates it. Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Nate and Trey are both names from Gossip Girl, watch a few American teen shows and you will get plenty of ideas.

However fav boys name is Phoenix

Thanks for your honesty, I do like Ty (Tye?) it has grown on me, still not 100% convinced though.

Mitchell is going to be his middle name I think. I love it, but don't want it as his first name.

Ty or Tye... <tries to be diplomatic>sorry that would make me always think of Thai - otherwise less of a name more of a noise...

Oooooo i love some of the suggestions. Tate and Lyle haha. I do like Tate though smile

My husband loves the name Tye. What do you guys think?

I can't have anything that ends with n so Grayson won't work.... It's cool though.

Love arlo, but it's quite common in Australia believe it or not.

If you like Trey, what about something like Grayson, nickname Gray. I heard this the other day and although it's not my taste, thought it was quite a cool option.
