Carter? Otis? Only Zachary I know has a brother called Gideon...

The only male Ellis I know is a horror which kind of puts me off a bit.

Zackary or Zak isn't really my cup of tea but it is a very different name from Ellis...or Louise for that matter.

What about Innes instead? or as Dancing says, something similar to Louise (which to be fair Ellis is) I like the Luis spelling or Lewis as the pronunciation is clearer. i.e. Definitely Loo is rather than Loo ee.

Other possibles

We have recently found out that we're having a boy. We're thrilled, but I was convinced it was a girl, and had managed to convince DH of the same. We had a lovely name picked out, but as we can't really get away with calling our son Louisa, we are back to the drawing board!

The problem is, there are very few names we agree on! So far we have have:

Ellis William (DH isn't keen, but I can't give it up)
Zachary William (which is the ONLY name we have that we both kind of like)

What do you think of these names? Any other suggestions? We already have a Gracie. William is a family name, but we don't really want to use it as a first name.
