Boys name HELP!

I posted this in my DDC but thought I'd open it up here since we need all the help we can get

If this lil one is a girl we definitely have a name picked out, Maddox. But I cannot for the life of me come up with a boys name I love! Or even one that Taylor and I can agree that we both remotely like. And yall are gonna laugh when I tell you how picky I am about it so here goes:

1. None of the -aden names (ie- hayden, caden, jayden, etc.)
2. Actually no names ending in N at all, our last name is Watson and I think it sounds too rhyme-y.
3. I like both traditional and non traditional. (DS is Joshua and Maddox isn't exactly traditional, at least for a girl.)
4. I'm not a fan of most of the more current names that are popular in my area such as Owen, Parker, Ethan, Connor, etc.

AND here are the names that have already been ruled out so NOT AN OPTION:

Bradley
Elliot
Jack
Jude
James
Jake or Jacob
Joseph
Jonathan
Matthew
Michael
Andrew
Max

So Please HELP ME!!! I know I'm being SO picky but this kid will be stuck with it the rest of his life (if it's a boy)!

I think you could do a one syllable name that ends in -n. For example, Quinn Watson is fine.

My fav boy names that fit your criteria

Bennett
Oliver
Levi (if this baby is a boy we like this name)
Everett
Eli
Graham
Cale
Emmet
Cole

Could you use Maddox for a boy too? I have a friend whose son is named Maddox.

We have a cousin Blake who is about 5 years old, so IMO too close to share a name. That is another problem, we both have huge extended families who we are very close with, and we wouldn't really want this baby to share a name with any of them. So that eliminates a good chunk of names right there. I do like Maddox for a boy also so that is definitely a possibility.
