Why are boys names so difficult with our surname?

Our surname is Valentine and really struggling for a boy’s name due to initials.

I want to avoid names beginning: B, C, D, H, I, N, T

So far on list but we can’t agree on any 100%:
Alexander
Arlo
Kai
Rowan
Zachary

Ruby Elizabeth Valentine is lovely.

I like all your names, apart from Sophia.

Oh you just entered a whole new level on awkward initials OP!!! You do realise, especially with any vowel in the middle, that you will have to think about any new potential surnames of the future (if wedding traditions are still about)!
A teacher friend got married and became a FAG which was only noticed on the school timetables after all the pupils had them. She was FG on the next timetables.
