This is a followup to my gender disappointment thread, which really was quite wonderful and I deeply appreciate everyone's help. I went through all my name lists again and my name book and the names other people suggested and wanted to see how others felt about these choices. No middle names yet. Feel free to comment.
Still not doing well, depression-wise, but I'm trying here. Thanks for the support.
Theodore was my pick, followed by Henry. Hope you start feeling better soon.
Aurelius is my top pic by far. It really just shines with its regal, noble quality. It's such a dashing, sophisticated name... like he should be a knight in shining armour. Theodore would by my #2... it's extremely cute and vintage, and has so many potential nns... but it does lack the dashing quality that Aurelius has for me... Hope you feel better soon... just take things slow...
Really tough choice for me. I really really like a lot of them. I ended up voting for Aurelius, because this was on my own list for quite some time. But I could easily have voted for any of the others (except for Matthias and Ptolemy- not such a fan of these two).
I voted for Julian, but also like Henry, Matthias, Theodore, and Alaric
Same here. I love Gretchen & Cordelia. :)

2. Julius - I like Julian very much too, but you might as well not repeat the final -n sound as Gretchen if you have other options, imo
5. Aurelian - I know this is counter to my Julius statement, but I just like this version quite a bit more than Aurelius.
Best of luck!
I voted Theodore because it is my personal favorite boys name (and maybe name in general) of all time. But I also really love Alaric and Henry.
I voted for Theodore. Second choice is Henry. I hope you feel better!
Cordelia and Gretchen are both recognizable but a bit unique and eccentric.
I think Matthias fits that description the best.
My second pick would be Alaric with nn Ari. A little bit of a different style than your others but still great. You could also use Ari as a nn for something like Darius or even Aristotle.
