Need BOY name help

I'm due to have a boy in May but my DH and I are struggling for a name. We had two boys names if our DD had been a boy but one has been used by a close friend whose DD's name is the same as our DD and the second my DH doesn't want any more as he knows to many guys with that name who he deems stupid
Our DD is Lillian and so far the only name we can agree on is
The two we had were Samuel and Benjamin.
We just want another option in case our choice above doesn't continue to grow on us. We have been through so many that we are lost for ideas so I thought i would come on here and see if the wise ones of EB might give us something we haven't thought of.
Your help is much appreciated.

ooh lots of ideas, thanks.
Awesome101- James probably would have been on the list if it wasn't my cousins name.
