1. Abel
Wait just a moment. Let the name Abel sink in. Not only does it sound like "able" but it's derived from Hebrew and means "breath," which is pretty cool. And, while the story of Abel in the Bible isn't a happy one (beyond being a son of Adam and Eve), the nickname Abe is unironically hip. Also a plus, everyone will associate honesty with your son, (you know, like "Honest Abe"). If you're not feeling this as a first name, it could also make a great middle name option.
