Help me!

We have a very common welsh surname that isn't Davis or Kelly.

Husband is Welsh. I am not. We live in the north.

We like traditional names. I'm a teacher so it's making this very hard. We have an Alexander (Alex) I like names that can be shortened. Second boy due very very soon

So far:
Sam
Max
Ollie

But haven't settled on anything.

Help!! Open to suggestions

Liking some but lots used by family.

Can't have Tom thanks to famous welsh singer sharing surname.

I like Matthew but that's my cousin
My boss is called Nick

Don't want alliteration Confused

I really like Max!
Alexander is lovely and I think pairs well with another longer classic like Sebastian, William, Benjamin or Jonathan.
