Surname-y boys names

DS is Harris. DH and I commit the Mumsnet sin of liking surname-y names. We are Scottish though where it is more acceptable. DC2 is due next month and we are trying to find a name we both like enough to use. We have a girl's name we like.

Some boy's names we like so far are:
Cooper
Campbell
Cameron
Fletcher
Ramsay
Leighton
Murray

But none of these seem quite right. Please give me some more suggestions!

Two Scots of my acquaintance:

Grierson
Granger

My father was Campbell, his brother was Ross, but to me that's not quite the same vibe.

I love Forbes and Innes but DH isn't keen. DH loves Leighton but I'm not convinced. We are getting there with finding a middle ground though smile this thread has been really helpful.

Really not keen on Leighton!

Lewis
(It's his Mum's maiden name, which is rather neat)

I guess it means, he has to be careful with bank security questions.

I knew a very handsome and cool Ramsay once, I've always loved the name but my DH not so keen. I knew a Hammond too, not so cool! Campbell is gorgeous and Cameron is good too.

I'm loving Macaulay at the moment but I can't see DH going for it. I shall let you know when we come to a decision!

I love Cameron and also Fraser, Murray, Murphy and Spencer.

Ooh, almost forgot as hadn't thought of it in surname terms but Cole was a favourite if DC had been a DS!

Thought of Massie today.

There's a few I like but can't have for various reasons (close friends or family members, people I don't like with the same name).

We are liking Flynn and Ridley. Haven't raised Colby with DH yet but I like it too.
