Surname will be Lee, I'm really struggling to find boy names I actually like that don't roll in to the surname. I'd ideally like a middle name as think it breaks it up a bit.

I think I like quite hippyish names or old style. Names that have been vetoed or used that we like are
Frederick
Elijah
Jacob
Theodore

So please, oh wise MNers, help me find a name I love!

I like Rowan, will add that to my list.

Not keen on any others though, sorry.

My maiden name was Lee and I know it's a hard surname to add names to without them sounding like adverbs...

You need names with hard sounds at the end like:

David
John
James
Nathan
Benjamin
Marcus
Henry

Not Frank or Kai grin

I think the world could bear another Laurence (Laurie) Lee. Otherwise Conrad?

Not Bruce ...

Frederick Lee sounds good. Long name+short name.

I second Alexander - I know two men called Alex Lee.

Think of the nicknames of longer names:
William Lee - Will Lee
Frederick Lee - Freddy Lee
Alfred Lee - Alfie Lee

I would choose a 2 syllable name that will unlikely get shortened:
Reuben Lee
Quentin Lee
Marcus Lee
