Felix- I'm not a fan. It just sounds like a cat's name and not very attractive on a boy. It's also heavily used in the hispanic community.
Harvey- I like Harvey ok. It's a laid-back, country boy kind of name... I also like Harlan, Hurley or Harmon as alternatives.
Milo- I LOVE Milo. For some reason this name sounds both strong, unique, modern, and yet classic. That's hard to come by in a name.
Sawyer- I'm not opposed to this name, although it is the definition of trendiness right now. It's also being used for girls more.
Henry- this one has always been a bit boring to me. I just don't get the appeal although I know alot of people love it.
Flynn- I don't get this one.
Theo(dore)- I really, really like Theodore. It's so strong and humble. So different and intriguing without being too out there.
Owen- it's cute, but I'm not sure how it grows on a boy and it's also very, very popular.
Xander- never been a fan.

Felix - Love this name! So handsome yet quirky. I could see this name working on so many different types of men. It's familiar but not overused.
Harvey - Meh. I don't dislike it but it seems a bit dated to me. I think of the movie/play as well as Harvey Weinstein. It seems a bit dull to me.
Milo - Another name I love! This owuld be in my top 10 if it wasn't a popular milk product in Australia (where my SOs family is). I find it to be a bit like Felix in that it's short and a bit quirky. It has personality but isn't over the top or weird. It feels modern yet familiar and isn't overused.
Sawyer - A bit more trendy than the rest. I like it but wouldn't use it myself. I do like the adventurous feel of it though.
Henry - Handsome, and one of the classics that I really love. Lots of good namesakes too.
Flynn - This is growing on me. I think of Errol Flynn, and this definitely has an adventurous side to it. I'm not big on last names as first names but I still like it anyway.
Theo(dore) - I say go for the full and just call him Theo. I like both the long and short name. A handsome classic that's definitely underused, and has some great history.
Owen - A bit popular for me but still handsome. I see it as being a sporty name.
Xander - Eh. It's ok, but I find it pretty common these days.Switching careers and becoming an RN! Sadly mommy plans will have to wait until that's done. Still loving names though!

Felix- I'm really am liking Felix. I love the nickname Flix, ala Grand Hotel.
Harvey- This is okay, I think of the movie Harvey, where he's an imaginary bunny. (at leat I think that was his name...)
Milo - so cute! I love it, mainly as a nickname or pet name for Miles.
Sawyer- this is the only one I really don't like. It's still to connected to going down the rive wtih Huck Finn and Jim.
Flynn- This is okay. Not bad. Not my favorite.
Theo(dore)- Love Theodore, nickname Theo
Owen- I take it back, I don't like Sawyer or Owen. Owen is too Owen Wilson for my taste. I like Ewan though.
Xander - still very Buffy the Vampire Slayer for me, but I like it. It's waaay fresher than Alex.
