If he has no suggestions then stick firm with your top 4 (which I love btw) until he comes up with an alternative.
Don't do what I did, which is continually come up with new suggestions until he agrees with one of them. It feels like a compromise until you realize he got his #1 choice and you got your #22 choice!
If he's not that emotionally attached to a name then he can come round to one of yours! (Rant rant... grin)

Fraser?

DH wasn't keen on my name choice for DS2. I kept quiet about it and did try to think of others and didn't push the point. In the end he concluded that as he couldn't come up with any names he really liked, that he was OK to go with my choice (He had also vetoed my first choice name for DD and effectively chose her name - which I do love - so I think he felt it was fair.)

Wow thanks all for the suggestions smile

TBH I am probably just as bad shooting his favourite names down in flames blush there are names we both used to love, but I've just gone off them TBH (big gap between our other DCs and this surprise pregnancy!) - Finley, Kyle, Nathaniel, Connor. My tastes have changed! I would like something more unusual really.

I am also not keen. I only like Elias - also on my list.

Sebastian

Are those names of other dcs, or names your husband suggested?

From your list, you want an uncommon, but not crazy name. Is that a good deduction?

I've seen Ezra mentioned a lot recently, is that an up,and coming name?

Other names:
Eric/erik
Elliott
Marcus
Lloyd
Flynn
Leonard
Josiah
Barnaby
Garth
Troy

Indeed 228 something a little more 'out there' but not really really out there.

The names in my second post are some we thought of before we had DCs, I have since gone off them blush grin
