I need boy name help

We are adopting a baby and I need boy names. I have a long list of girl names but only 1 boy name and dh isn't in love with it. The one name I like is Nicholas (and NOT Nick or Nicky). I also like Andrew and had planned on naming my baby that after my grandfather, but 1 cousin on either side of my family named their babies Andrew (and one even used my same middle name too!) so that is out now.

So help me! Here is my list of girl names so you get a sense of what I like.
Magdalena
Isabella
Adrianna
Anya
Amaya
Aubrey
Kiara
Arabella

Our last name is very different, starts with a V and has 3 syllables.

Re: I need boy name help

Here are my favorites that I can't use due to a family tradition that all boys must start with a R:

Tucker
Lane
Dylan
Nathaniel
Zachariah
Zachary
Evan
Jaxson
Chase

Re: I need boy name help

Those are all nice names, but I'm not in love with any of them. I was very very attached to Andrew. My one cousin I never see, and the other one I see a lot. They actually call her baby Drew, and she said I could still use Andrew but it doesn't feel as special anymore. I liked my foster kids, they came with names, lol (although foster daughter's name was awful and foster son had the same name as my nephew, lol).
