Help with our list

Currently 33 weeks pregnant with DC2 and really struggling for names. Our DS is Reuben and we always loved that name so never had to think about it but we’re finding it hard to find a name that we love this time.
Heres our list of names that we like but none of them are “the one”:
Any suggestions please?

I like Jasper, Ada and Imogen best.

I think that's a great list. My favourites are Jacob, Jasper, Ada, and Imogen. But if none of them are 'the one' then how about:
Asher, Benedict, Caleb, Dominic, Elliot, Finley, George, Harrison, Isaac, Jonathan, Kieran, Lucas, Micah, Nathaniel, Oscar, Patrick, Quinn, Robin, Solomon, Thomas, Vincent, William, Xavier, Zachary
Anna, Bella, Charlotte, Daisy, Eloise, Faith, Grace, Hannah, Ivy, Joanna, Keziah, Lara, Martha, Naomi, Olivia, Phoebe, Quinn, Rebecca, Sadie, Tamara, Verity, Willow, Xanthe, Zara

All of the boys names are okay. Personally I like Jonah and Joel best
Girls list I am less keen on. Nothing wrong with any of them per se, just my personal taste.

I like Rosa for a girl! Or how about Clara?
I know brothers Reuben and Quentin and think they go well together.

I like your lists too! You seem to like the J names for a boy. Other possibilities - I like Patrick as someone suggested. Joseph might be an obvious one and James.
Some of these really popular aren't they - like Ada and Lily has been super popular for a while. Rose names are also very popular at the moment. I do like Imogen but I really don't like Immy, so maybe depends if you like the shortenings too?
Others of this sort of "granny-chic" style name might be things like Elsie, Mabel and Iris. I love Iris but that's pretty popular too. Maeve is a nice name that maybe fits the simplicity of the names you seem to like. Then there's things like Etta and Hattie and Edda. All the Daisies and Maisies.I really like Norah but not everyone on here does. Nell is nice. Going off piste: Ingrid, Inga, Astrid?

1 Joel - underused
2. Jonah - at least not overused
3 Max - if you want a break from the biblical
Jacob- great but v popular. Sebastian is nice too. Jasper a bit wet.
Other less popular ideas - Jethro, Jerome, Nathan, Josiah, Caleb, Cassian, Lucian
I love Edith, Imogen is nice, Ada bit harsh but ok. Rosa- Two Rs is a bit much, Lily is v overused and wet.
Lois, Ida, Stella, Tessa, Esther, Emmeline, Jasmine are less popular alternatives
