Suggestions for not too popular or trendy names

We found out we are having a boy and after much searching we have only one name on our list: [name]Theodore[/name] [name]Axel[/name] nn [name]Theo[/name]. My husband and I both love this name but would like to have a few back ups as well. We want a name that is below the top 250 and not trendy. Names we considered but ultimately didn’t make the cut and the reason why:

[name]Carter[/name]–love this name but way too popular
[name]Declan[/name]–doesn’t go with our last name
[name]Jett[/name]–reminds me too much of [name]John[/name] Travolta’s son
[name]Matteo[/name]–don’t like the nicknames [name]Matt[/name], [name]Matty[/name] or [name]Teo[/name]
Dahani–worried that it will be mis-pronunced
[name]Rohan[/name]–used by a friend

namberries - pelase any suggestions?

It’s hard to know what your style is from the very different names you have posted so I’ll just go by [name]Theodore[/name] [name]Axel[/name] and wing it. Here are some suggestions.
[name]Leo[/name] (pold)
[name]Do[/name] you like any of these for a back-up?

Thank you for the suggestions. I do like [name]Matthias[/name] and [name]Jasper[/name]. My husband really likes [name]Matthias[/name] but neither of us are big fans of the nickname [name]Matt[/name]/[name]Matty[/name].

Since I can’t tell much about your style, and I also love [name]Theodore[/name], I’ll just pass on a few of my faves that happen to be uncommon:

[name]Byron[/name] (#401)
[name]Carlton[/name] (not in top 1000)
[name]Cormac[/name] (not in top 1000) nn: [name]Mac[/name]
[name]Duncan[/name] (#732)
[name]Jebediah[/name] (not in top 1000) nn: [name]Jeb[/name]
[name]Thaddeus[/name] (not in top 1000) nn: [name]Thad[/name]

I know 2 [name]Matteo[/name]'s that have never gone by [name]Matt[/name] or [name]Teo[/name]. I like [name]Jasper[/name], dexter and Corbette.
