1. Tobias. Toby is masculine yet soft at the same time, and Tobias is a strong name.
2.Alistair- It's unusual yet intriguing and dashing. Very close second.
3. Rupert- Rupert Grint :-) It seems like it should sound old manly but it actually is quite cute and I like it.
4. Oliver- Really really popular right now but if that doesn't bother you it is a perfect name and very cute. Can see on someone of any age. Oliver Henry is a dashing combo (The best sibset with Oliver i've met was : Henry, Oliver, Abe, Violet.)
5. Rhys- Only fifth because I used to pronounce it Rice but then I realized it is supposed to be pronounced Reece. Prefer 'rice' a lot more though. Strong dashing name that could work even besides those like Alistair.
Least Favorite 5
1. Hamish- I just can't get behind it. It sounds silly. Ham-ish. I don't know just the pronunciation makes my skin crawl.
2. Jago - Doesn't sound like a real name. Sounds like a cartoon character.
3. Damian- Just not attracted to the sound of this name.
4. Bertram- At first I thought I liked it, then I realized I just don't. Bram sounds really juvenile and Bertram sounds really aged.
5. Leopold- I like Leo well enough, but Leopold is a bit much for me
1. Peter (classic, sweet, and heroic; also my brother's and uncle's name)
2. Henry (very regal and ages well)
3. Damian (just generally cool-sounding, references aside)
4. Griffin (ancient yet modern)
5. Matthias (classic with a twist)
1. Dexter (good show, but has an unappealing sound to me)
2. Hamish (goofy sounding)
3. Alistair (overly fusty)
4. Rupert (not bad, but not a stand-out)
5. Bertram (see Hamish and Alistair)
It was very hard to pick five favorites because I love so many of these.
