Stressing Over Boys' Names!!

We have recently found out we are having a boy which has made name choosing harder! I have a while to go yet but I am really getting chewed as I just hate all the names, and those I don't either don't work with the surname (begins with TH and 3 syllables) or OH has vetoed.

Names I like.. Jake, Theodore, Reuben (maybe?)

Name my OH likes... Odin...

Reuben is still a possible and also Jacob.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Like those names. Except your dhs suggestion only because I haven't heard of it though. Jacob and Reuben would be my favourites.
Other suggestions : Elliot, Elijah, Isaac.

I do like Elliot, but associate the name with a client (and I work in crime so not a good link!)

I know a baby Isaac so couldn't use. And Elijah doesn't work with the surname.

I will keep Elliot on the list and see if I can warm to it!

I like Jacob with Jake as a nn.

When I see Reuben, I think of a sandwich

I don't know what the sandwich thing is but it's not known in my area, never heard of it! We like it because of the meaning behind it I don't think the sandwich thong will be an issue for us lol
