Boys name help please

I am having a lot of trouble coming up with a boys name that feels right. I have been through lists of popular names and read baby name books, but nothing feels right yet. I always see interesting names and opinions on this board so I thought I would seek out some help.

I have a daughter Olivia that we call Olive. Our last name is a fairly common boys first name. I tend to like popular but not too trendy names. I don't care for names like Tyler, Payton, Connor as they are very popular in my area.

Here are some names we are considering: Gavin*, Grant, Miles, Jude, Max, Lincoln*, Liam, Sam*, Cameron, Simon*.
* means my husband also likes the name.

I likes these names, but none feel just right. Any suggestions?
