Help! Classic uncommon Boys Names

[name_m]Hi[/name_m], I am pregnant with my second son and really struggling to find names I like. [name_f]My[/name_f] first son is named [name_m]Hugh[/name_m] (which I love).
I really like classic but not common names. I think I like [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] so far but [name_m]Henry[/name_m] is quite common and [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] might sound a tad pretentious??? Any help would be appreciated - thank you!

[name_m]Tybalt[/name_m]
[name_m]Wells[/name_m]
[name_m]Wilfred[/name_m]

I’m not sure of popularity where you are but classic names with Hugh…

[name_m]Otis[/name_m]
[name_m]Theon[/name_m]
[name_m]Leon[/name_m]
[name_u]Stanley[/name_u]
[name_m]Gideon[/name_m]
[name_u]Howard[/name_u]
[name_m]Albert[/name_m]
[name_m]Alfred[/name_m]

[name_m]Arthur[/name_m]
[name_m]Alfred[/name_m]
[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m]
[name_u]Basil[/name_u]
[name_m]Cecil[/name_m]
[name_m]Cyril[/name_m]
[name_m]Derek[/name_m]
[name_m]Dominic[/name_m]
[name_m]Eric[/name_m]
[name_m]Gareth[/name_m]
[name_m]Gordon[/name_m]
[name_u]Maurice[/name_u]
[name_m]Ronald[/name_m]
[name_m]Stuart[/name_m]
[name_m]Victor[/name_m]
[name_m]Vincent[/name_m]
[name_m]Wesley[/name_m]
[name_m]Wilbur[/name_m]
[name_m]Winston[/name_m]

Thank you for the suggestions so far ! Also we have a very [name_f]English[/name_f] sounding surname with a tt. I love names like [name_u]Emmett[/name_u] and [name_u]Everett[/name_u] but I think it might be too many T’s.
It’s very difficult to chose a simple / usable name that’s not too out there :disappointed:
[name_f]Do[/name_f] we like [name_u]Spencer[/name_u]? I like that it’s simple and not overused but just not convinced…

I hope this list helps you. I adore [name_m]Henry[/name_m] but I’m not a huge fan of [name_u]Spencer[/name_u]. I don’t dislike it - it’s just sort of ok to me. But still, it’s a solid choice and suits [name_m]Hugh[/name_m] well enough.

I know a [name_m]Hugh[/name_m], his brothers are [name_m]Charles[/name_m] and [name_m]Patrick[/name_m].

I think I prefer [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] from your options

I would avoid two H names. I prefer [name_u]Spencer[/name_u]. [name_f]My[/name_f] sons name is [name_m]Marshall[/name_m] I’ve only met two children in the last 7 years with his name. I also want to suggest [name_u]Miles[/name_u].

I think [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] and [name_m]Hugh[/name_m] make a nice sibset

i don’t think spencer is pretentious, and i think it makes such a brilliant brother to hugh! hugh and henry make great brothers too but spencer is my preference!

I think [name_m]Hugh[/name_m] and [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] are really nice together. It’s already been suggested, so consider this another vote for it, but I also think Theodore/Theo is so adorable with [name_m]Hugh[/name_m]. Other suggestions are [name_m]Peter[/name_m] and [name_u]Francis[/name_u].

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_m]Hugh[/name_m] is darling! I love [name_m]Henry[/name_m], but it’s sooooo popular. [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] is not my cup of tea, but it’s not an unpleasant name. If you like it, it goes perfectly nicely w/Hugh. It’s simple & not too popular.

I love [name_m]Hugh[/name_m]! [name_m]Henry[/name_m] is a bit too close to [name_m]Hugh[/name_m] for me. [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] isn’t pretentious, just comparatively modern. You need something underused and simple that shines.

I absolutely love [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] and [name_m]Henry[/name_m] . But I feel [name_m]Henry[/name_m] is popular. The names you seem to like have deep roots so I will suggest

[name_u]Alfie[/name_u]
[name_m]William[/name_m]
[name_m]Thomas[/name_m]

[name_m]Matthew[/name_m]
[name_u]Jonah[/name_u]
[name_m]Jonathan[/name_m]

[name_u]Spencer[/name_u] definitely gets my vote though
