Baby Boy or Girl Geez-brekt, Sibling to Caitlin, Olivia, Emily, and Curtis

SIL writes:
I'm emailing you for my sister in law, they're last name sounds like Geez-brekt. She's due January 26, gender unknown. This is the fifth baby, they have 3 girls and boy- Caitlin Naomi, Olivia Lynn, Emily Megan and Curtis Evan. Here are they're top contenders at the moment:

Boy

Adam
Liam

They loved Evan (other son's middle name), and didn't use b/c friends already did. They also like Ivan, but it's taken as well. I suggested Everett or Gavin, both of which weren't liked.

Girl

Amanda- dad likes, mom- meh
Hannah- mom likes, dad dislikes
Lauren- not sold on it

Looking forward to seeing what your commenters have to say!

If they can't use Evan or Ivan, I wonder if they might like Ian, Owen, Eamon, or Ethan? Or Aidan or Avery or Kyle?

For a girl, would the dad like Anna better than Hannah? Would the mom like Miranda better than Amanda? And if Lauren is "sort of but not quite," they might prefer Laurel. More possibilities:

Abigail
Annabel
Bethany
Brenna
Kiersten
Liana
Lindsay
Madeleine
Marissa
Molly
Natalie
Samantha
Sophia
Violet
Vivienne

I like Ian and Owen so much I'm tempted not to make additional suggestions, but here's one: Benjamin.

For girls, I liked the suggestions of Abigail and Laurel. Maybe Isabel or Chloe would work.

What about: Ella (girl)
Ethan (boy)

I can see the dilemma!!

I love Adam and Liam, Adam especially. How about James or Noah?
For a girl I suggest Eden, Elise, Karla, Megan, Natalie, Sabina.
Good luck!

For a boy, I like Adam a lot, but some other ideas are Connor, Brogan, or Kellan.

For a girl, I like Anneliese, Clare, or Jillian. I like the repeating "l" sound in each girl's name, and think it would be nice to continue that.
