    My boys' shortlist - thoughts and suggestions please!

    Like many berries, I find boys' names tougher than girls' names. The names I like, I really like, but my boys' list is a lot shorter and a lot more "stagnant" than my girls', so I'm looking for thoughts on my current top contenders and suggestions for any other names I might consider adding.

    My style is fairly short, punchy, traditional yet slightly offbeat names. One name I love but cannot use (sob!) is Felix; the others on my current shortlist are:

    Arthur
    Asa
    Caspar
    Dexter
    Eben
    Edmund
    Florin
    Griffin
    Ivo/Ivor
    Jem
    Kit
    Louis (LOU-ee)
    Otto
    Rex
    Sasha
    Tobias/Tobin

    Sorry for the length - brief thoughts on these and/or additional suggestions in the same vein much appreciated!

    Thanks, @neve_a. Ugh, good to know about Tobin - I did not know that and it's definitely something to consider. Thanks!

    I like Knox, Milo, Rory and Silas a lot. Silas has been on and off my list quite a bit - maybe he'll sneak back on

    Arthur - nms
    Asa - Love Asa… I think it’s sweet and flows great with a ton of middles. My favorite is Asa Joseph for classic and Asa Wolf for a little more spunk.
    Caspar - Cute
    Dexter - I only think of the serial killer… I liked that show, but… not the best association. It’s too bad because it’s a great name!
    Eben - nms
    Edmund - nms
    Florin - nms
    Griffin - I like Griffin a lot.
    Ivo/Ivor - Ivor is cute… I have never met anyone with the name, but it’s handsome.
    Jem - It’s not terrible, but doesn’t feel like a full name to me.
    Kit - For some reason, this feels like a girl name for me.
    Louis (LOU-ee) - nms, kinda meh
    Otto - Love! I’d love to meet a little Otto
    Rex - Great name… same as Otto, I would love to meet one!
    Sasha - I know too many Sasha’s who are girls, so I can’t really see it on a guy.
    Tobias/Tobin - I love Tobias out of these two… handsome!

    My favorites: Asa, Rex, Otto, Tobias, Griffin
    Liv • Cosima • Florence • Emilia • Marlowe • Amara • Flora • Jane • Willow • Luna
    Iris • Soleil • Aurora • Olive • Violet • Aurelia • Fiona • Zara • Zella


    River • Luca • Atlas • Alaric • Luke • Jonah • Oscar • Fox • Julian • Milo • Wolf
