Baby brother for Edith

Hi all!
I have a little girl called Edith already and her sibling is due in a few months' time. I have a solid list of girl names I like (Agnes, Ines, Romy, Hilda) but barely any boys names I feel particularly excited about. Could make my peace with Magnus, Clement or Reuben. Names I love that are "taken" (as in close friends and families have named their sons these names) are: Felix, Theo, Fergus, Arthur. Any other ideas?

Thank you all for your lovely comments and suggestions! And the unexpected love for Clement😄maybe I'll have to think about that one a bit more. I also really like the suggestions of Laurence (Laurie is such a cute nick name).

@Luredbyapomegranate Theo is my husband's godson, his best friend's child, so that would indeed be a bit too weird unfortunately
