Question Boy name suggestions?

A DS mama suggested Landon to me yesterday and DH and I really like it but upon doing more research today I found that it was #51 in '05 and #32 in '06 in popularity and I don't care for popular names- especially those that are following a trend to be in the top 10!

So far I have:

Jaret Jennings
Spencer Ryan
Preston Scott

The first names are all of English origin- as are dh's and I's first names- our last name is German and one syllable so I try to stay away from one syllable first names because the name sounds so clipped- kwim?
I like names that seem to go together nicely- with the same kind of "feel" to them.
We have a few girls names to pick from but we are all out of boys names!
What do you mamas think?

I have friends at church that have a Landon. Their other two sons are Dawson and Wesley.

I know that we have a lot of trouble with names too. We have a very common last name so we tend to stay away from popular names too. My boys names are Clayton Montgomery, Cole Walker, and Ty Colton.

I like Wesley a lot. Don't think it will ever be in the top 10.

I like Walden, but my DH doesn't. Since I don't think I'll get to use it, I'll let you have it! LOL!

I also think these names might go nicely with your boys:
Edison
Nolan
Urban
Ogden

I really like Landon, but from your list I like Spencer Ryan the best.
