Need help naming a character in my book.?

I’m trying to think of a good name for the family in my story. I have the parents already (Erica and Carson) But need names for the kids. There’s some restrictions on the names I can chose though:

Can’t be unisex

Not a popular name but still used.

Timeless sounding

No unique spellings

The last name is Riley so it can’t start with R or end with the long e sound.

The initials can’t spell anything

Both boy and girl names would be great!

    How about considering what Erica and Carson would have named the kids. Is there some family naming traditions (like one of the kids has the mother’s maiden name or father’s middle name)? Would they have been named after a relative? Would they have chosen religious names (like after saints or something from the Bible)? Would the name have some ethnic or regional flavor (like Irish or Southern US)? The popularity of names change with time, so when we’re the kids born? What is considered “unisex” also changes over time.

    Considering those types of things help you create more well-rounded and realistic characters.

    But if you just want random names:

    Sloane

    Rose

    Calista

    Josephine

    Reed

    Mason

    Carson James Jr. (CJ)

    Noah

    Nathan
