Can't come up with a name for a baby boy

Ok, I do still have 4 months to go, but we're really struggling to think of a name that we both like for a boy.
If you pushed me, I'd admit it's because I'm secretly hoping that it will be a girl - it's so much easier to think of attractive names!

-We have British and Spanish connections, so it should be something that is pronounceable in both countries, even if it doesn't originate there

-I have an unusual name and DP has a boring one, so we'd like something mid-way iyswim. (Outside top 50)

-As he's my DP not my DH, the baby will have a double-barrelled surname

- The baby's second name will begin with "F"

So, any advice?!
I'll appreciate anything.

I am exactly the same as you - we had a name all picked out for a girl but found out it's a boy and have no clue. My current short list are:
Henry
Harry
George
Heath

But I have no clue! Hoping one will just 'come to me!'

1stbaby thanks, but no "Hs"because of one of our surnames! Although, Harry's a good one.

Thanks for Milo,*Tittywhistles*, I like it.

Thanks Gwennan, we liked Luca/s, but my sister has it on her future list because her DH is Italian!

Hmm, two votes for Ruben/Reuben....interesting.

Thanks everyone.

Op - is your sis pregnant with a boy? If not then maybe you could go for Luca/s?

No way! : ) iloveberries, she'd kill me if I nicked her name!
She isn't pregnant, we're just planners in our family.
