Boy name help please

We are having trouble coming up with a boy name. My DD is Wren Elisabeth, if baby #2 is a girl it will be Kira Rene (accent over the e, but I can't figure out how to that on the iPad).
DH and I had trouble coming up with a boy name last time too, lucky DD was a girl or she'd have been nameless while we fought it out over a boy name!
So, some names we have thrown around but are not set on: Kellen, Ezra, Finn, Ira. We don't want to repeat a letter so no names starting with A, S, or W. Middle name will either be Edward or Patrick (both are family names).
Suggestions?

Eta: our last name is Irish and starts with M if that helps any!

I mean the middle names can go with anything. What direction were you thinking?

I like odd names but also classic names I hate popular names and odd spellings (that's just MO)

Goodluck! Something that helped me also was remembering that these names must be for adults also I mean I wanted all of these cute funky names then I'd picture my kids at 50 or whatever w the name, twocents

Thanks! I like Benjamin, I'll have to run that one by DH. We can't use Max, Isaiah, or Brandon since we have family with those names (that makes it hard too, we have huge families!). DH had a student named Dakota he wasn't fond of so tha tis out too. That also makes it hard, DH being a teacher means names get associated with certain kids!

I love your boy's names! A couple of my cousins named their boys Wesley and Mitchell
I like Liam, I'll run it by DH and see what he says.
I think we lean heavily towards English and Irish names. Our last name is Irish and starts with M.

Love the name Dillon. It was my maiden name. yay for Irish babies! Ronan is awesome too. Or how about Patrick Edward? Or the other way around? One of my favorite boy names is Brennan.

I really like both Ezra and Finn. We are actually thinking about Finn if we have another boy, but our close friend's dog is named Phineas (called Phin), so that might be weird for us, lol. Our DS's name is Murphy. Other Irish names I like are Declan, Cillian/Killian, and Seamus.

I vote for Finn. It would go great with a Mc last name! (I'm assuming it's Mc something if it's Irish!)
