Feedback on some boy names, please!

We are stumped.

Our last name begins with a P, and ends with -er. Names like Tyler, Parker, etc are out. Here is our short(er) list (we are not in love with any of these names, but do 'like' them):

Gable
Gage
Caelen or Cael
Calvyn (meh)
Samuel (on my list, not DH's)
Caleb
Aran
Mason
Zachary
Thomas

Any thoughts? We will be using David as a middle name, if that makes a difference.

Our direction seems to be headed toward Thomas, but I'm not a big fan of Tommy as a nickname, and Tom just seems so old for a baby.

Of course, we are open go any suggestions! Please throw them out there! We have a James (named for DH), and Alexandra already.

I like Samuel and Caleb mostly because they go with James so well.

DDcrashing...

LOVE Thomas! But DH's stepdad and 2 uncles are Thomas and we didn't want anyone thinking baby was named after them. If you don't want Tommy or Tom, just tell everyone you aren't using those nicknames. I have a William and a Henry and it took a while, but no one tries to use nicknames on them anymore. I also like Zachary and Samuel, we go for classic boys names.

I know I am never going to have another child but I love the Cael. I also like Calvin. William is a family name, but my husband wouldnt let me use it.

I like Gage, Caelen, and Samuel the best. Samuel is my favorite though! I couldn't get DH to love it either, but will stay on my favs list!

Do you like Gavin, Gabriel, Colin, Anthony or Camden? I'd try to find one you love, or at least REALLY like. Keep looking till you know it's the one. Something like Camden David P-er sounds good to me!

There must something about the Name Sam because I tried to get DH to let me name baby boy Samson and it was a no go.

My vote is for either Aran, or Gage. I put up a poll and everything and then came up with a totally different name LOL!

Wow! Everyone loves Sam! I *heart* Samuel, and it's a fairly traditional New England name. We love our Sam Adams around here!

I love Aran, but people seem to be down on the spelling. Apparently, Aaron is cool is enough.

annb - I like Camden, but we already have a few Cameron's on DH's side. It's quite close to a few other names that have been recent. I had to at the P-er. Pee-er.
