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).Matilda, Vera, Beatrix, June, Eleanor, Cordelia, Adelaide, Elisabeth, Leona, Daphne, Kathryn
Edwin, Frederick, Calvin, Arthur, Walter, Rowan, Winston, Desmond, Keith, Robert
