Decent N or S names??

edited December 2014 in Baby Names
we are Jewish and traditionally name our children for deceased relatives that were important to us...in our case it's an N name and S name (both women and we're having a boy) - alternate letter options are R, E and F...but we really want N or S names.

Current options are:
Noah Samuel (or flipped)
(Noah is growing on my but so common!)
Nathaniel Shay or Nathan or Nate - not a fan but my husband likes.

My son's name is trendy/popular but we didn't realize until after we loved it and decided to use it anyway...

Our last name ends in -en

My 88 year old grandma likes Neil and offered Norman

Ideas??? I've tried baby name sites and the best they offer is Nehemiah, which is not our style.

Please help!

Edit: we will not announce the name until the baby is 8 days old, so we are trying to stay away from asking family opinions - which is why I am asking here...

  • In addition to what you listed, I like Seth.
