Baby No.2 and we've run out of names!

Baby No.2 is due towards the end of the year but we can't think of any boy or girl names we like. We already have a James Joseph, which was decided as soon as we knew we were expecting a boy. We don't like unusual names (if people can't pronounce it or find it difficult to spell - it's out) or what I think of as American names (Aiden, Jackson, Aubrey, Brooke etc) and I want it to be a name that will be appropriate for all ages. We do prefer traditional names but not a fan of the 'trend' with old man/old lady names.
Is it impossible? Are we being too picky? TIA

(I'm not trying to offend anyone who's chosen these names, just our preference)

James Joseph is lovely. How about:
Emma
Susannah
Louisa
Alice
Rebecca

Daniel
Lewis
Charles
Peter
Christopher?
They have the same vibe to me.

I absolutely LOVE Louise/Louisa but it has to have a middle name and there just doesn't seem to be anything that suits it as Louise is so commonly a middle name itself. I do really like Emma too, so I'll put that on the girl list. I'm not a fan of any of the boy names, I just can't picture myself calling out those names. It doesn't help that 3 of those are cousins of mine (definitely don't want to use their names!)
