Auður: it's an Icelandic name I found in a book and it means happiness, good fortune. I have no idea why I love it so much, though. Also, the spelling would be a nightmare.
Snow: It just...
I would pick Harvey in a heartbeat, but if the alliteration bothers you, Wesley is my other pick.
Sorry for the double post, but I totally missed this post during my first reply :P
Flavio Cicero sounds very...Roman. I do like it, though. You can't go wrong with Flavio, almost all the names in...
It could be helpful for a middle, especially for the boy, since he'd be the first in the family, but it's not customary. At least where I live in Italy it's not what people usually do. We barely use...
I met two brothers at summer camp Bastian (around 9) and Danilo (6). Such fresh choices, considering that half of the boys are named Edoardo (ages 6 to 12). Oh, and funny thing, we have two boys...
Also a city/port in Sicily (most likely where the wine originated). Disguise it as an Italian place name and you're set :P
I definitely think "godly" before "goddess", and I'd pick that out of the nine names. Thea Evelyn (as other suggested) is really beautiful. Though if you're still on the fence about Thea, definitely...
Also, there's a book by Helen Oyeyemi called Boy, Snow, Bird. Guess what, all three are girl names in this! Boy on a girl never convinced me, but as soon as I read about Boy Novak I was sold.

Galen. GAH-len instead of GAY-len.
I'm would love for Tramonto, the Italian for sunset, to become a name. And if you make me think about it, Sunset doesn't sound half as bad; kinda sounds like Susan, though I'd envision Tramonto on a...
Well, today the top contenders might be (not in order):
1- Katherine (Kate)

The Italian version of the name, Zaccaria, is pronounced like that, just with a little more emphasis on the hard Cs! ;)
I chose Peter, even though it was a hard one. You can't go wrong with either, I guess. I do like Peter a little bit more, but I'm not sure why. Maybe the vowels in there made it more pleasing to my...

The first that comes to mind for me is Greil. The person that made me discover this name is an author, Greil Marcus, and said that his name is pronounced almost like grawl, and not the way I was...
Mateo (surely prefer the Matteo spelling. It feels like something is missing without that T.)
Griffin, Hadley, Jordan, Lily, Margaret, Maya, Morgan, Stella, Violet (can even add a flower-y sub-theme if you want!)
F: Hadley, Morgan, Ellis, Ellery, Grey
So many suggestions! Keep them coming!
What are your favorite B names these days? The ones you hear the most in your neck of the woods? I'm looking for any style, any origin, any length or sounds. Even unisex names are okay, though we can...

Maggie is my favorite, but I think that Frankie could stand well on its own as well, and it has so much spunk. I also like Daisy (even though it's almost too frilly for me some days) and Callie. I...

Astrid for sure, but I'm also in love with the uplifting meaning of happiness and good fortune I found for Auður.
There are probably more, but off the top of my head, those two are the first.

Emily or Emma
Lily or Olivia
Olivia or Isabella
Amelia or Ava
Isla or Mia
Isabella or Emily
Ava or Abigail
Sophie or Madison
Nora, Lyla and Isla for the girls, Graham and Isaac for the boys, Paxton/Mason if you don't like to repeat the IS in Isla and Isaac.
What about... (sorry for any repetitions!)
@dantea: Congratulations! All the best for a future in writing books! :D
@mizukuni: Finishing stories is the hardest part. You need determination and a little bit of masochism as well. If you...
Giacomo? It's the Italian version of Jacob, though, not John. If we want to go international, John in Italian is Giovanni, so the nickname for that is out, just like José for the Spanish version....

Top choice: Langston
Hugh, Grey (I honestly prefer this to Gray), Clyde, Miller are in some of my lists, and I'm warming up to them; Dario for my Italian roots; Xavi as a nickname; Denzel as GP.
