Anyway, it's just for fun!
Antony is too normal.
Armand did you see Namberry's blog about hunk? A guy named Armand prefers Armie since his name is Armand Hammer. This is ok. I wouldn't use it, but it could be worse.
Lancelot, Leander, Leonidas Leopold, Lysander
Rainier, Robin, Roderick,
I am not as fond of
Ulric (I'm reading a novel at the moment that might put me off this though), Umberto
Quentin sounds like a prison or butler to me.
Marlowe I like but I think has been taken over by girl regardless of spelling.
a few more names I think could work:
Ambrose, Emery, Alastair, Alec, Caspar, Rowan, Noel, Gareth, Leon, Morven, Emeric & Alaric.
awww.. i just thought of a name i like but it sounds too much like rosalind!(It's Linden).
I can't think of anymore, so i'll probably disappoint. However some of my favourite names are amongst these. My boys list isn't very big though compared to my girls so i find it harder to find names that i actually like.... (i did actually ask people what they thought about these names in a question before)
You have some of my favourites on your list, lovely to see them!
Tip Top: Casimir, Emrys, Hector, Leopold, Orlando
Very Nice: Leander (would be higher if it wasn't for nn Lee, ugh!), Lysander (ditto nn Lys, sounds too girly), Wilfred (I like nns Wilf and Fred but not so keen on the full name), Rufus (fantastic name, but not with Rosalind), Sebastian (just a bit too trendy these days!)
Makes me squirm: Percival, Quentin, Robin, Ulric (sorry! Just one of those personal things :))
Trstan; I'm shocked you like Tristan :o
emilyva; Thanks, I like Benedict and Rupert (!!) very much.
leona; Ambrose is lovely, as is Leon & Emeric. Alaric is kind of on the list, I just keep on forgetting about it and that, to me, is a bad sign.
Bob=Kate/Catherine; Yay for Hector! It's in my secret top five. I never thought of the nickname Lee for Leander... Lysander I'm starting to get iffy about because the Shakespeare character is dull. Thanks!
Hi. i was just wondering if you could answer my question in the boys category? I really need help.
You know, I actually think this name is a bit trendy ... but I love the Tristan and Iseult story. Especially the Matthew Arnold poem. So I don't mind the trendiness of this name. :)

Thought it might appeal to you too with it's distinctive sound and Italian routes.
Bonaventure could be a great mn counterpart to Beatrice.
Lol I didn't know you had a post for your boy names!
At the top:
Orlando - I loooove this name.
Sebastian - My #1 name! So sad it's getting so popular, but that won't stop me from using it!
Hector - Love the history of this name
Loxias - Reminds me of Roxas from Kingdom Hearts and that makes it a winner for me
Salvator, Faramond - Surname-y, but I like them
Dante - I've always like this name
Leonidas - So strong!
Lysander - I don't care for it, but I like it with Rosalind
Almost, but not quite:
Antony - Too plain next to Rosalind, imo. And I prefer Anton
Lucius - Not my favourite 'Luc' name. I much prefer Lucian and Lucien.
Tristan - This always reminded me of King Triton! I like it, but it's a bit trendy
Marlowe - Prefer this on a girl
Lancelot - A bit too Shakespeare
Isidore - I know it's masculine, but it feels a bit too feminine because of more popular Isadora
Robin - Only as a middle
Percival - I want to like Percival, but I'm not quite there yet. I really like Percy, though
Rufus - More suited for a pet, imo
Wilfred - That show with Elijah Wood
Ranulph - First reaction is: "Is this supposed to be Randolph?"
Quentin - Freaking Tarantino. He's a character! lol...
Silvan - Prefer Sullivan. Silvan just reminds me of the tutor program.
Ulric - Reminds me of a disease
Roderick - Never liked this name
Orpheus - I see Orphan
