    Alaric and Seneca are my favorites (although now I slightly associate Seneca with the guy from Hunger Games... not sure if that's off-putting for you or not). I really love both!

    I quite like Cicero, Hector, and Tiberius, as well.

    Good luck!

    Hey there. Sorry about the nightmare! Who needs Faramir and Gawain when you've got Endymion and Herne anyway? I would think that narrowing the list down might make things easier once the baby's born, but I'm happy to keep playing with your list!
    What's up with Alaric as a first name? Are you liking some of the middles more than the firsts?
    Altair- I like the astronomical connection to Aquila. Soundwise, I prefer Alastair.. Altair sounds a lot like "alter," so it feels slightly ungrounded, transitional or something.
    Artegal- I hear "article." Still, a very graceful name.
    Cicero- Like Orpheus, a wonderful namesake but a one-man-name. Middle name material IMO.
    Galileo- Again, a one-man-name, but so obviously so that it becomes more useable. I think Orpheus or Cicero would be hard to inhabit. Galileo is so over-the-top that it feels freer, if that makes any sense. Great sound too.
    Hector- Sure! But it's pretty butch compared to your others. I recommend "Hector Protector," illustrated by Maurice Sendak.
    Hermes- Love this. But not with Herne, unless they're twins, and even then it might be questionable.
    Hylas- I'm torn. Part of me finds it lovely to say, kind of sexy and sleek, and part of me hears "high-less" ears hang on the "less." But I feel the same way about Silas, and Silas is pretty much bulletproof.
    Lorand/Roland- Lorand.. very interesting. I think you could name a son Roland and use Lorand as a nick. Love Roland. Well, I love The Song of Roland. The name is handsome, but not as handsome as Herne or Endymion.
    Marinell- I think of marinara sauce.
    Orville- Love this but I don't think it fits with your other names. I think of Orville and Wilbur Wright. I see Orville fitting in with those fashionably clunky, hobnailed, old-man, steampunk-Biblical type names like Barnabas, Gideon, Cornelius..
    Ovid- I know I know, Ovid the poet. I just think "oviduct, ovary, ovulation."
    Pelleas- I think it sounds a bit like "bilious."
    Rodomante- I think about rats every time I take the subway. No name beginning with "Rod" and ending in "ante" will get my approval.
    Seneca- Ok my grasp of ancient history is abysmal, so bear with me. Seneca as in Nero's advisor? Isn't Nero known as kind of a bad guy? "Nero fiddled as Rome burned" and all that? Plus, the Native American thing (though surely it's not as sensitive an issue in England.)
    Tiberius- Love. Blade's old suggestion of Tiberius Heron has been floating around in my head since you dropped it. Knocked my socks off!
