"The name" is no longer the name. Help!

Hello berries! A few months back you helped me to choose “the name” for my baby. His name was going to be [name]Jared[/name], but DH and I have recently faced a personal fiasco involving a very unpleasant man named [name]Jared[/name]. For this reason the name just no longer appeals to us. So we have gone back to the drawing board with names so to speak. We’re looking for something that is very familiar to American ears, with a modern feel, but not in the top 50. [name]Levi[/name] would be our number one choice if it did not clash with our last name. Our last name is one syllable and sounds like Key.

Any ideas/suggestions? All help is appreciated. Thanks ahead of time!

Oh! I’m so sorry–how frustrating, but I totally understand.

I think [name]Hollis[/name] goes well with [name]Patience[/name].
My sister is [name]Hollis[/name], however, she was going to be [name]Hollis[/name] even if she was a boy. My dad’s name is [name]Hollis[/name] as well as my granddad.

That’s a shame. [name]Don[/name]'t despair. We’ll put our heads together and come up with a special name for your son.

Thank you guys so much! You do not disappoint. Here are the names I’m loving:

[name]Julian[/name]

[name]Oliver[/name]
[name]Silas[/name]
[name]Asher[/name]
[name]Emmett[/name]
[name]Desmond[/name]
[name]Dexter[/name]

I really like [name]Ethan[/name], but it’s just too popular for me. Is [name]Easton[/name] a good alternative? I also really love the nn [name]Ben[/name]. [name]Do[/name] you berries prefer [name]Benjamin[/name] or [name]Bennett[/name] as a full name? Thanks again.

What about [name]Benedict[/name] nn [name]Ben[/name]?

You have such nice names picked out! Out of your current list, I really like [name]Dexter[/name]. [name]Easton[/name] only reminds me of baseball equipment. For [name]Ben[/name] as a nn, I would choose [name]Bennett[/name] since [name]Benjamin[/name] is so extremely popular. What about [name]Benson[/name]?
