Help! Boys name ideas needed!

Rupert is ok , but seems quite formal compared to [name_u]Toby[/name_u]. Your husband’s being unreasonable - [name_m]Joseph[/name_m]/Joey would be great, as would [name_m]Samuel[/name_m]/Sam. You don’t like quite a lot of the traditional Old Testament names which would match well. What about [name_m]Adam[/name_m], [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] or [name_u]Eli[/name_u]? I also like the the suggestion of [name_m]Raphael[/name_m]/Rafa.

Ross, [name_u]Wade[/name_u], [name_m]Roman[/name_m], [name_m]Paul[/name_m], [name_u]Davis[/name_u], [name_u]Neil[/name_u], [name_m]Otto[/name_m], [name_m]Harris[/name_m]

I love [name_m]Rupert[/name_m]! What about [name_m]Gilbert[/name_m]? [name_m]Wilfred[/name_m], [name_m]Wilbur[/name_m] nn [name_u]Billy[/name_u]?

I think [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] is sweet with [name_u]Toby[/name_u], and love the nicknames.
Some other ideas, possibly repeats:

Some of these might not be considered completely traditional, but I tried to think of some names that feel familiar yet underused. Good luck!
Edited to add:

Sorry for any repeats!

Oh I love [name_m]Rupert[/name_m]!
I don’t think it’s too posh at all, though it is quite a different style than [name_u]Toby[/name_u]. But honestly if [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] feels like the one, I don’t think that’s a dealbreaker

Thank you guys. Familiar, yet underused is what we’re going for! [name_f]My[/name_f] husband likes [name_u]Robin[/name_u], but my dad is [name_m]Robert[/name_m], which is [name_u]Toby[/name_u]’s middle name, so sadly it’s too similar. He also likes [name_m]Alastair[/name_m], which is growing on me, but I don’t like [name_m]Al[/name_m] or [name_f]Ally[/name_f] as NNs. If it’s a girl, the baby will be called [name_f]Imogen[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] and I love that paired with [name_u]Toby[/name_u] [name_m]Robert[/name_m]. Sorry for being such hard work. I really appreciate you taking the time to come up with suggestions. At the end of the day, if it’s a boy, it’ll have to have a name, even if it’s something we both just like!
