boys' name inspiration

We're expecting dc4 shortly but still have no boys name and need inspiration. We've been through lots of name books, so are looking for something more unusual, or maybe a combo that works well.
To give you an idea of what we like.... we have on the short list Dafydd, Arthur, Edward, Thomas but are uninspired by the tank engine names / the others we don't both like equally. We like Abel, rawdon and Noah except Noah's too popular and the others are probably a bit too unusual (I'm trying to imagine how my Dh would have felt age 13 with those names). Elijah will probably be a middle name.
Not so keen on surname-type names and don't really want anything too odd that would be hard to get through school with. Thanks for your help!
