Please could you help to name our baby?

Dc2 is due in November and we have no names on the list. Not a single one.
We don’t know the sex of the baby so would love suggestions for both.

I work with children and have a huge family which is not helping as it knocks lots out of the running. DH is clueless.
- Dd1 has a classic name that was uncommon when we named her but has risen in popularity. I seem to like classic girls names.
- I would prefer less popular but recognisable.
- I seem to be drawn to biblical boys names but am open to ideas. Again, prefer underused but not too out there.
- Any name must have good nickname options. I know that mumsnet is often against preplanning this but every name gets shortened in my family and I want to make sure that it is to something that I like.
- surname is Evan so needs to go with that.

I know that I sound really awkward and probably am but any ideas would be appreciated. smile

Clara or Nathaniel?

I feel like whatever you go for don't end the name in an a sound, so as to avoid the 'reven' sound or awkwardness pronouncing it clearly. Depends on your accent though I guess.

Gracie?

Jake?
