Help!

We are expecting #3 in a couple of month's time. Name choice is proving difficult. We are not sure of gender.

DS1 & 2 both have short, sharp, modern/hipster-ish names that are not too 'out there'.

Our last name is medium length, three syllables, starts with M.

We prefer a short name (1-2 syllables) that cannot be shortened to a nickname.

On our shortlist:

Tate
Nash
Boyd
Jude
Gabe
Jobe

Stella
Tilly
Tia
Pippa
Lyla

I like Jude and Jobe from your boys list and Lyla from your girls list. I have a Lila though so I’m a bit biased.
