Dmitri - Yes, I think this name is usable, I love it!
Diego - It is usuable, but it isn't my favorite. However, I know a little boy named Diego and he is adorable.
Mordecai (w/ nn Cai/Kai) - It's usable and has great nn potential
Brahms (as a middle) - Yes, definitely!
Marcellus - Yes, it works
Almonzo - This might cause more issues just due to the fact that people might mistakenly call him Alonzo/Alonso.
All in all, your names are great and usable, however, my favorite by far would have to be Dmitri!
I love Diego. I've never met a non-hispanic Diego, but it could work. I also really like Lars.
I love, love, love Lars. I think it's quite usable.
Dmitri -- Yup. Cool. Makes me think of the comedian, Dimitri Martin. Who is hilarious.
Diego -- Go, Diego, Go! Yeah, no...
Lars -- I know a light-haired, fair-skinned Lars. It's a great name.
Mordecai -- Very cool, but wouldn't use it personally.
Brahms -- Eh. Not bad as a nickname.
Marcellus -- COOL.
Almonzo -- Erm, for some reason this makes me think of Mexican food?
Agreed. The rest are quite versatile.

I personally dont see Dmitri, Lars or Brahms ever working... sorry.
Lars, Diego and Dmitri could work well.
I think they'd all be okay, apart from Diego.
As long as they're all real names, they're all fine.
Thank you all for the feedback -- this is great!
@kala_way: Yes, I was surprised that I actually liked Brahms when I came across it on a list! I love that is sounds so masculine but is softened by the lullaby connection. :)
Haha, yes, I definitely like the Little House on the Prairie association. :) I don't know what I would use for a nn but Manny and Manly are cute.
