Boy names

Our two boys are Liam Alexander and Emerson Noah. When Liam was born, his name was number 53 on the popularity lists. Last year, it was number one in our state. When we were expecting Emerson, we wanted something less popular, without being terribly strange either, KWIM? Now we're naming another boy. We like simple names, but preferably not so popular that he'll likely have classmates with the same name.

Right now, our short list is Gavin and Easton. I'm leaning towards Easton, DH is leaning towards Gavin. Neither of us dislike either name. At the same time, I'm not really in love with either one. So I'm still looking for more ideas. Any suggestions?

Gavin is quite popular these days?!

We have an Isaac, Caleb, (both of which are popular) but for our third due Ina few weeks here we picked Enoch. We love the meaning, & also that it's a rare name.
Some other not so popular names: Sutton, Braxton, Karsten...

Depending where you are I think... I have a Gavin, he's 5. I haven't met any other Gavins in our area (Saskatchewan, Canada). But when we visited my sil in Denver a couple years ago we heard his name being called out by other parents a number of times... we visited a kid's museum and met 2 other Gavins in one morning.

I have a friend with a son named Easton. I like it and he's the only one I've ever met.

I love Gavin, but I'm obviously biased

If we are having a boy then his name will be Ridley . Not too out there but definitely not common!

Declan, Talon, Kellan, Travis, and Keagan were all contenders if we had had boys.
