In general, I really like them. None of them are horribly problematic in any way. And you should value your own opinion more that a bunch of strangers on the internet. That said, here it goes...
Cyrus~ I love this one! I recently added it to my short list for boys.
Theodore~ It's a nice, handsome classic.
Blaine~ Not my favorite, but not bad or anything.
Demetri~ On my list!
Finian~ I like it but I think I like Finnegan better.
Lewis~ Also a solid classic.
Callum~ I really really like this one. It's almost on my list.
Evander~ I like this one too! It's kind of strong but not harsh.
Remy~ It's cute, but it lacks some substance.
Desmond~ Also nice.
Malcolm~ I personally have a bad association with this name, but just as a name it's fine.
Leo[/QUOTE]~ This is another good classic. Maybe a little fresher than Lewis.
So my personal favorites are Cyrus, Theodore, Demetri, Callum, and Evander. The ones I don't like as much are Blaine, Blaise, and Remy.

Cyrus - don't really like it, but it's a fine name. No real reason I can place.
Theodore - I love Theodore!
Peter - I love Peter!
Blaine - too much like plain and blah to me.
Blaise - blazing just seems like it has tease potential? i do kind of like this as a middle though.
Demetri - don't care for it, this spelling looks odd to me.
Finian - it's nice enough. Finnian looks like a nicer spelling to me and I like Finnegan more.
Lewis - love Lewis!
Callum - like Callum pretty well.
Evander - like Evander pretty well.
Remy - not really a fan of Remy.
Lennon - too strongly associated for my taste, but the sound's not bad or anything. I like Lennox or Landon more. Or Linden.
Desmond - love Desmond!
Malcolm - I echo the pp's sentiment. Small world! Also Mal always makes me think of "bad" in Spanish, but I get that's not universal.
Leo - love Leo!!!
Top picks: Theodore, Peter, Lewis, Desmond, Leo!

Cyrus - I can't get behind this one. It's too Billy Ray for me.
Theodore - Bad association with name, so, NO.
Peter - meh, it's okay, kind of boring.
Blaine - sounds too similar to 'plain'.
Blaise - makes me think of some weird paste...
Demetri - I prefer the Dimitri or Dmitri spelling, but I kind of like this one.
Finian - could be a nice alternative to Finn.
Lewis - One of those names I'd like to see on other people's kids, but I like it fairly enough.
Callum - Not really into it, but not strongly opposed to it.
Evander - I think of Evander Holyfield. Not a bad thing or anything, just sayin'.
Remy - I really like this one. I'm starting to like it more again since I saw it on an old name list of mine I found.
Lennon - I like the Beatles as much as the next person, but this one's NMS.
Desmond - really like this one. Quite handsome!
Malcolm - I have a bad association with this one, so I can't really say.
Leo - nice solid name. Overall, I think it's okay though.~Favorites of the moment~
Girls: Sonya, Caroline, Sakura, Carmilla, Terra
Boys: Conrad, Fain, Marcelo, Serge, Isidoro
Vote on my name list!

Cyrus -- Love this one! Very handsome and Cy is very cool
Theodore -- I just can't manage to get behind this one but I love Theo
Peter -- I've never liked this one. It sounds whiney to me, but I'm sure it's a perfectly fine name
Blaine -- This one is very cool but I like your next name better
Blaise -- Love this one for the sound and the King Arthur myth connection (Merlin's secretary) and the scientific one
Demetri -- LOVE We wanted to use this one but Dante, Damien, and Demetri seemed like too much. Very handsome
Finian -- This is just okay to me
Lewis -- I love the soft, sensitive sound of this one and Lew is great
Callum -- This is like Theodore, I just can't for the life of me get behind it
Evander -- LOVE for the mythological connection and it just sounds great too
Remy -- Love this on a boy. It sounds so spunky and cool
Lennon -- I would love this as a middle name rather than first for John Lennon
Desmond -- I love Dessy or Dizzy as a nickname, but I don't like the whole name
Malcolm -- This one just has a boring feel to me
Leo -- Love it! Very handsome and cool on it's own

In my opinion I created to categories on what you should keep and what you should nix from the list.
Theodore - Old school yet awesome nicknames Theo/Theon/Thor.
Peter - We need more little Peter's! I assume the male anatomy reference is to blame.
Lewis - Great choice that is never wrong.
Callum - Different and Cal is a nice nickname.
Desmond - I also never hear on children.
Malcolm - I love this name for my own selfish family reasons but is still a great name.
Leo - I love how simple Leo is. I'm also a fan on Lenard or Leonardo.
Nix: Mostly nixed because their not my style and I think the names above are great choices comparative.

here's what I think:
Cyrus - I adore this name! Love it, it's great! and I agree with a pp that Cy is such a cool nickname.
Theodore - I like this one, really like Theo as a nickname, or as a full name.
Peter - classic name. I wouldn't use it personally, but a little Pete or Petey is too cute on a little boy.
Blaine - don't like this at all.
Blaise - same as Blaine, don't like.
Demetri - I really like this one and it's one of the names where I actually like all of the various spellings.
Finian - not sure about Finian, I love Finnegan, and prefer Finlay to Finian (not that you were asking for alternatives to get to Finn, but just in case)
Lewis - not sure, I think I prefer it spelled Louis.
Callum - I like Callum.
Evander - I like this one, I wonder if a lot of people would automatically think the boxer, I don't even like boxing or know much about it and that's where my mind first went.
Remy - it's ok.
Lennon - I really like Lennon, and even though I always think John...I still love it, great association for me.
Desmond - not a fan.
Malcolm - really like Malcolm! I think it's a strong, underused name, love the sound of it.
Leo - really really like Leo!
