Please come up with some fresh ideas for a boys name - totally stuck!

I'm really hoping for some inspiration! Due this month and DH and I can't think of a single boys name we both like.
My all time favourite boys name is Silas but although it got a decent reception on here, in rl everyone hates it including my husband. I really like Rowan, he doesn't. Looking for that holy grail of a name - not common but not weird, straightforward to spell. We do both like Theo and Isaac but there are just too many of them around now to consider either of them.
Surname begins with M and ends in 'ley' and I'm not keen on alliteration.
I would be very grateful for any suggestions as we are not getting anywhere! DH doesn't come up with his own suggestions, just rejects mine.
Many thanks!

I love Theo. I have a teen named Theo. Back then it was uncommon. I agree it's not unusual anymore. :-(

Here are some cool but maybe va bit weird names...
Lorcan
Thurston
Cormac
Oh can't think.. will pop back if more come to mind.

Thank you!
Seth is lovely, I've suggested it previously to DH who inevitably is not keen. Like Noah but way too popular, certainly more so than Isaac or Theo round here.
Dorasee - great suggestions, not considered any of them before but might be a little TOO unusual for us.
Keep them coming!

Hi! Happy new year. I've got my heart set on a few different names.. I like Max (but yet I don't like what Max is shortened for, Maximus etc), Theo, (again, not a fan of Theodore) and my favourite at the minute.. Freddie. Not overly keen on Fred but I could live with it! I'm having the same struggle as you!
