    Default Unique/unusual/uncommon boys names??

    With #2 due soon, we are still so stumped on a name! Bub is boy #2.

    I used to work in a social/people sort of field, so many names automatically are vetoed, especially common / popular ones.

    Our first born has an unusual name, and i love it! We are looking for something similarly uncommon/unheard of for his brother. THough, not made up. Despite many comments and questions, we actually did get his name from our baby name book, but nothing else is really jumping out at me this time around.

    I Do not like old names, in saying that, one of the names i like is Rueben. I am just drawn to it for some unusual reason. The other one i like is Zaide. I can not for the life of me, convince DF on either of these. He is happy with basic names like Jack, Luke, Aaron etc.

    His one and only suggestion for bub was "Oryan" But it is too similar to DS.

    DS is ...... K. y a n.

    So...suggestions please!

    I love those names. We didnt find ds' name until 38 weeks and even then hadn't decided on it.

    Gunnar. Its Scandinavian for warrior. A cool, uncommon and slightly edgy name I think
