I can't even get a short list together for a boy! Girls names I find easy, but boys, nope.

Middle names will be David John for family reasons. Surname starts with H so first names beginning H are out, as is anything with a strong oooo sound such as Matthew, Luke etc. I like Adam, Benedict and Zachary but all have been used by close friends in the last few years so would rather not. My DD is Evie so I wouldn't have used Adam anyway, that's just wrong... I also know a number of Noah's and Jonahs but I don't like the h sound at the end either.

Any suggestions welcome! Suspect we might have to use 'blob' for some time, hoping for another girl to save myself the brain ache.

Thank you all. Liking Gabriel, not sure about Gabe as a nn tho. Seth also came to mind. So many of those names I like but have already been taken by close family or are the names of friends. I like all the traditional boys names but when you know an adult already called that, I just feel awkward with having a baby called the same for some reason!
