We are stuck for a boy's name.
we don't want religious names or anything too popular we also don't want a family name (too many to list !)
so far we can only agree on Oscar which I think might be too popular although we will probably go for it anyway ! we liked Scarlett or Imogen for a girl. so any suggestions for other boys names ?

I also would prefer a name that can be shortened.

Oscar can't be shortened hmm

How about:

Emerson (Emmet)
Finlay (Finn)
Harris/Harrison (Harry)
Joel (Joe)
Edgar (Ed)

Or if you go without the shortening options:

Agree Tobias (Toby) is very nice, or Alexander, (Ally, Alex, Lex, Xander, Sandy).

How about Rafferty, (Raf, Rafa, Rafe, Raffa, Rafi) or Edward, (Ed, Eddie, Eddy, Ned, Ted, Teddy)?

We have an Oscar shortened to Oscie, it's not too popular in scotland yet!

I loved Oscar when we were thinking of a boy's name, but unfortunately knew too many. I think Otto is lovely - and quite similar to Oscar, without being too common! Other suggestions:
Raphael (shorted to Raff or Rafe)
Sebastian (Seb or Bastian)
