Starting over on boy names

I have one more agonizing week until we find out what this LO is...but I am starting to really obsess about having both names picked before we know. Don't ask me why, with DS2, we only had the boy name picked and hadn't even talked about a girl name. But then again, I KNEW he was a boy. This one...I have no idea. So I want to be ready. We have Estelle Joanna picked for a girl, LOVE this name and we both agree on it. For a boy we had Cyrus Wayne, but it is out now, it just doesn't feel like "the" name. I really like Archer, but I'm thinking it is too trendy and popular (or at least getting that way) for my taste.

So what would you name a baby brother to Zavier LeRoy and Quintin Charles? Middle name would be Wayne, Nelson, or Clark, to honor my grandfather on my mom's side. I want something that sounds good with my other boys, but isn't too trendy, too popular, or too out there. Any suggestions? Thanks!

For some reason, Jasper is the first thing to come to mind.

I'd think of Pierce, Nolan, Gabriel, or Dashiell.

Pierce is on my list of favs, so it is a contender, although I'm not sure it's "the one". I know too many Nolans, and we already have a Gabriel in the family (born about a year ago), so those are out. Dashiell is on my SHORT list...but DH doesn't like the spelling...so I don't know if I can swing that one with him. Thank you :-)
