gender = ?? NO boys names!! due in november! help!

Hey everyone!  My husband and I are expecting our first baby in November-- so in about a month.   We didn't find out the gender of baby, and we're struggling big time with boys names!   We have a girls name which is top secret.... any ideas for boys names??  

Name rules-

1.  It can't be anything too popular-- trying to avoid the top 100 because I'm a teacher and I have tooo many students. 

2.  No M names

3.  No names that end with -ER 

 

Boys' names that we've thrown around-- Colby, Graham (but we call my Grandma- Gram-- so baby could be named after her), Nolan and Carson.  (Nolan and Carson are top 100 names) 

HELP!!  :)

Thank you for your feedback!

Grant, Hugh, Grayson, Colin, Rufus, or Simon. I'm not sure if these are top 100 names but seem on trend with the names you listed.

Any way you could share the girl's name with us?  It'd help to narrow down suggestions even more.  For example, if you're girl name is Lucy, you may not want suggestions for boys like Luca or Louis since they would rule out Lucy for any future girls.

Toby, Gray/Grayson, Noel, Landon, Callan, Cole/Coleman, Larson, Griffin & Grady

FWIW, I really like Nolan. I didn't even realize it was top 100.

Brogan, Keegan, Lawson, Curren, Callan, Gannon?

Graham

Yes!

It does sound like Gram, but it really has two sylables that flow together at the a-h-a.  The h is like a soft breath in between the a's.  When I slow it down so that the two sylables are almost discernable it sounds so nice to me!

Have you tried to stretch Graham out into two sylables when you say it?

More suggestions:

Donovan

Sullivan

Westley

Quenton/Quinten/Quinton/Quentin/Quenten/Quintin
