I don't find Olive, Agnes, or Sebastian wearable but they're love around these boards.
However it's true that names become wearable when you see/meet someone with the name. I didn't like Aurora or Eloise until I took care of the sweetest toddlers with those names. Harvey was a total nerd/geek name until it was worn by Harvey Specter on Suits
Burton makes me think of Gus (Burton Guster) from Psych so I love it. But even before the show Burton never felt prissy, more like somebody's dad
I have an older cousin named Sheldon, nn Shelly or Shell. Always popular and handsome, not at all nerdy
I grew up around a lot of Hispanics so Edwin and Delmar are names I heard often. Can't decide if I like Delmer or Delmar better, they're both great

Burton reminds me of Tim Burton, which makes it unusable for me since I always found his movies to be "disturbing"
Elmer is another one I couldn't use just because it's my favorite type of glue!
The rest are totally usable.
The only name I have issues with is Euphemia. I see it as pretty, but everyone else (in the real world) sees it as too out there or unusable on a real person, better for a fictional character. I'm hoping to get it as a middle name, but it might end up on a pet.

I think these days, pretty much anything goes.
From the list you presented, I love Edwin. If I ever have a son, Edwin is a name I'll seriously consider using. I think it's an underused gem of a name! I know loads of people who would probably disagree (though many of these people think names such as Beatrice, Arthur, Cordelia and Calvin are totally ridiculous, unusable and elderly).
