Help me come up with boy's names!

We have plenty of girl's names we like, but no boy's names at all! Got any suggestions?

Our personal name rules are:

1) should be an actual name, so Avacado and Twelve are way out. Unusual names are fine though.

2) Ideally uncommon, so they would hopefully be the only one in their class at school. I understand there is actually little I can do about naming trends, but there were six Sarahs in my year and I would like to avoid them being known as "Name + initial" if possible.

Fire away, please!

Noel Gallagher and Pasty Kensit have a Lennon. I know of one who is about 2 or 3 months old, I really like it.

conorsrocker: There is a Lennon at ds's school. For ages he called him Lemon, so I corrected him and then he started calling lemons 'lennons' (he was in Nursery).

MerryMarigold - I remember that problem when our Lennon was little. So we started calling him Lenny! It's maybe more popular up north? (we are far south).

I love Edison and Darwin but DP vetoed both, thankfully we had a girl as I don't think I would have ever forgiven him for not letting me use one of them
