Boy names with positive meanings

Our family is in a difficult spot as we welcome our unexpected third child. My marriage is at best tenuous and my daughter and son are apprehensive about the coming baby boy. I would love a list of names that have a really positive, uplifting meaning.

Some names I like are:

[name_m]Corwin[/name_m] - purely for the supposed meaning (“heart’s friend”)
[name_m]Evander[/name_m] (“good man”)
[name_m]Jonah[/name_m] (“dove”)
[name_u]Phoenix[/name_u] - for the mythological symbolism

Can you help me find more?

Thank you so much!!

[name_m]Victor[/name_m]- Conqueror
[name_u]Noah[/name_u]- To [name_u]Comfort[/name_u]
[name_m]Felix[/name_m]- [name_f]Happy[/name_f], [name_m]Fortunate[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m]- [name_m]Noble[/name_m]
[name_u]Max[/name_u]- Greatest
[name_m]Asher[/name_m]- [name_f]Happy[/name_f], [name_m]Fortunate[/name_m], Blessed
[name_m]Jacob[/name_m]- Supplanter
[name_m]Lucas[/name_m]- [name_m]Light[/name_m]

[name_m]Xavier[/name_m]- Brightness
[name_m]David[/name_m]- Darling
[name_m]Hugo[/name_m]- Shinning Heart

I love [name_m]Evander[/name_m]! A beautiful meaning in an unexpected name. I would suggest looking at the Meaning of Names lists on Nameberry and searching through the lists with uplifting meanings to get ideas. I looked through names that mean “blessed” and “happy” and found these.

[name_m]Asher[/name_m]- fortunate, blessed, happy one
[name_m]Benedict[/name_m]- blessed
[name_m]Matthew[/name_m]/[name_m]Mateo[/name_m]/[name_m]Matthias[/name_m]-gift of God

[name_m]Alan[/name_m] - handsome, cheerful

Thank you so much for the feedback! I have searched all the Nameberry lists I could find with positive meanings. I was hoping to find some I might have missed. I’ll keep searching!
