Name help please!!

I would love some suggestions for what to name this guy. Please...only serious suggestions.

Here's the rules

~It can't start with an E, or a C. I don't really want to repeat letters. I don't want to repeat mine or Matt's either but it's more of a guideline than a rule on those two.

~Nothing that sounds like Cora or Erin, or like our last name.

~It shouldn't be more than 2 syllables. We have a 3 syllable last name, so a shorter first name would be better.

~I don't want it to have 4 letters. Both Cora and Erin have 4 letters and I don't want to be "trapped" into a theme. But if the perfect name DOES have 4 letters...well....I'll deal.

~I really don't want it to be in the top 50 most popular names.

~I'm really liking Alexander as a middle name, and I *think* I have Matt agreeing with that (of course, I could be completely mistaken about that). So a name that sounds okay with Alexander would be good.

I love the name Andrew (go figure!) but Kevin won't let me use it. Although, it doesn't flow too well with Alexander and I think it's top 50. I also like Isaac. Have you tried Babycenter's baby name finder (or any other)? Most will let you choose at least some of the parameters you want.

Okay I love these three names I looked up the meaning in case that is a factor
Gavan unknown meaning
Keagan Descendant of the fiery one
Logan from the hollow
I think they would all go with Alexander too!!!
I love you and cant wait to see what you decide on!

have you tried It lets you put in your top 6 favorite names and it generates names that are similar to it, based on a number of characteristics. It's freaking awesome!! :) My personal favorite name is Henry which I think only technically meets all of your qualifications, so I don't think I can really help much! Good luck coming up with one :)

Not Oliver, Felix, George or Max.

I like the sound of Patrick Alexander Cannady. Or Søren. Søren Alexander Cannady would be awesome. Or Kim, can't go wrong with that (and in Scandinavia Kim is actually a boy's name, never a girl's.... which is why I'm Kimberly in Denmark :-) )

I don't really have any specific names for you yet, but you could try doing what Mark and I did - next time you go to the doctor, take a look at the baby pictures on the walls and get some ideas there!
