I need boy name suggestions!

We're having our first boy in February.
We liked the name Alex, more for a girl than a boy. We were going to go with Alexander, but now DH is saying he's not really feeling it for a boy.
He likes Cruz, michael and John. I hate all of them. DH also likes Biblical names. John will most likely end up the middle name as it is my FIL first name and my dad's middle.
I'm open to suggestions. DH will veto anything that's too trendy. He likes "strong" names not quite sure what he considers strong though.
Thanks for any help!

My DH is the same way! WHat about: Christopher, Henry, John, Brandon, Theodore. When we had to pick boy names I made a mental list of one name for every letter of the alphabet. It helped generate some really interesting ones and we ended up with Henry James. Good luck mama

Thanks for the suggestions! Some of these I have mentioned already to DH. He's definitely vetoed Seth and Gabriel, 2 I really liked.
