Have you thought about maybe using a first name that starts with O, then making Neil the middle name? Otto Neil, Oliver Neil, etc? Then calling him O'Neil?
Otherwise, I think O'Neil is better than...
Beatrix Eve is gorgeous, not abrupt at all.
Other suggestions are, Beatrix Seraphine or Beatrix Seraphina, Beatrix Leona, Beatrix Morgana, Beatrix Gabrielle, Beatrix Augusta.
Fae is a great name. I'd considered it as a middle for my first girl, spelled the same way you've got it, but now I'm thinking it would be a great, sweet, solid but still mystical first name.

Mischa, I have an aunt Faye, too! I just haven't heard it on any in the younger set -- yet! Thank you again for all your research and compiling. So helpful.
Naming conventions are so funny. It's...

Mischa, you've compiled my dream list, oh my goodness! This is so overwhelmingly helpful, and I will definitely be consulting it in the future.
What makes you think Fay/Faye will appear in the Top...
Colt and Weston sounds a bit too close to Colt and Wesson, perhaps? When said together, the two names feel a little matchy (as in a Colt and a Smith & Wesson).
Colt and Jackson both have that...

@breanna - I never thought of Rex for a middle, but that's a great idea. Although Augustus Rex is a little too close to Oedipus Rex, for my personal taste.
@sunkissedchild - Ezekiel is definitely...

These are all really handsome choices.
Malcolm is both soft and masculine, which I like. I think Quentin goes well with it, though it feels slightly more trendy.
My vote would go to Claude,...

I love Leo and Seth. Very cute. An unexpected combo but works great.
I would avoid Jethro since it almost rhymes with Leo. Same deal with Milo. They have similar feel, as well. And Otto.

I made a post a bit ago then jumped the Nameberry ship because of general life chaos. I can't find the thread now and wish I could, because I'm sure many of you made wonderful suggestions.
Odelia Genevieve - oh my goodness - *swooooooon* I fee like that name was taken right off my very own list. Based on that, I am going to assume we have somewhat similar taste.
Hello!I have been waiting to make this post for a long time -- actually, not that long. Only about seven or eight months, but when you're trying to conceive, the wait seems to last forever. It...
I have a kid named Bishop, and so far he doesn't seem too traumatised :P
I understand the aversion to title names. I've, however, always considered Bishop more of an occupational name, like...
I like it. If I met a girl named Brunhilde I'd be so smitten.
I think it's a bit long. And yeah, I can't get the rhythm yet. All pretty names, though.
How many syllables is your last name?
Re: Pronunciation issues. I think because there are so few people who carry the name in real life, you have some options when it comes to Rowena. Will teachers likely call her roh-EE-nuh? Maybe?...
I'm so glad you like nickname Rue! I wish I'd thought of it, but Berries were the ones to suggest it to me for my still yet unnamed girly. It is really adorabe, both feminine and tomboyish at the...
How about Hedwig? Quirky and a tad clunky, but a very beautiful name. There is also the variation Edwige, which is slightly less clunky, and won't be so associated with the owl so strongly....
I'm fond of your list. Here are some you might like:
Beatrix Winter is perfection.
It would make me so happy to know there was a little child running about with this lovely name.

I like Manam, it's quite sweet, actually. I'm sorry you got teased about it growing up! I had a strange name, too.
As previous posters have said, I like the idea of using a nickname if you aren't...
I would assume it was pronounced in the same way as the literary term. A sweet name. Not my style per se, but kind of funky and refreshing. Because it's archaic and hardly heard of, I find it less...
I say it with the hard 'i' sound rather than the soft, so that the last syllable rhymes with 'brine' (as in a turkey).
This is the more popular pronunciation, I believe.

Sounds like you're in a tough spot, and I'm sorry to hear it. You might try explaining to him that the names he thinks of as being "modern" and "contemporary" and suitable for a 21st century girl are...
