Babies name cant start with A E H Y N S. Cant end in A H E Y.

Congratulations Picky Chicky!  I actually thought the restrictions would make this challenge easy but even with all the eliminations I come up with too many names to type (and I've only looked at boys).  Don't know your taste or what the names need to go with to inform a narrowing down.

So a random selection (boys first):

Caspar/Kasper
Carsten
Dieter
Didier
Fergus
Florenz
Gabriel
Fletcher
Jethro
Jasper/Jesper
Kiefer
Juniper
Lorenz
Larsen
Marlow
Marcel
Piers
Reid/Reed
Remo/Remus
Remiel
Raphael
Rupert
Romeo
Tiernan
Tirrell
Vernon
Perrin
Rainer
Rex
Torben
Zephyr

Sorry I've gotta add Bart to pp suggestion! Hehe.

I know a guy named Bartel (pronounced Elle on the end) which is kind of cool I think.

Frederic/Frederick
Robert
Drew
Morgan (boy or girl)
Lawson
Knox
Mason
Carter

Keri
Bridget (or some version of)
Cerys/ceris/keris/karis/carys
Derris
Marian/Miriam
Vivian

Oh! This is hard trying to get the letters right. May I ask why?? Is it your surname or another reason, like not wanting the same initials as yours and others in the family, or a sound thing?

Both our boys have E and R in their first names and A and Z somewhere in the their names. We live in a small town with 60-70% all with our surname so makes baby naming hard work.
