Sibling for Iona

A few criteria:
no names beginning with I, M, C or T;
Preferably not another girls' name ending in "a", maybe not a vowel at all;
fairly unusual but hopefully people will have heard of the name before;
and names that are traditionally/usually not shortened or the shortened version of a traditional name so no to e.g. Benjamin or Ben.

I've got two months to go, but we just have no ideas that we agree on! Names I like include Luke, Jude, Adam, Seren, Rachel.
The only names DH has mentioned are Xanthe and Georgia - both of which I like but have various reasons against.
Happy to have another Scottish name but as I'm not from there (DH is) none have particularly occurred to me.

Just realised this list sounds extremely picky, hope those commenting on this topic like a challenge!

I love Iona by the way.

I'm due this week and planning on having a Jonas (if it's a boy). I like a lot of the names pps have suggested; hector Fergus Leo.

Most of the girls names I like end in an 'a' but I also like Tess.

Thanks everyone for these ideas. It's funny seeing names I already love on here (but have had to discount, usually because of DH).

I really like Verity, Rufus, Alice and Ross. Will see if I can get DH to agree on any of them, or maybe leave it a while til he's more desperate and liable to agree more easily...!
