YAY THE LIST! That day or so of waiting was much too long for me... I'm so exicted. I have to say, some of Emma's comments just made me laugh out loud (especially Roderick, haha). For the sake of simplicity and positivity I am only going to list names that I like, and leave the ones I don't off for now. I'll give stonger opionions/descriptions when it's been narrowed down a bit:
*Altair- I have come around to this one and I think it's gorgeous. The clear winner out of all the A-names in my opinion.
*Casimir- How was this never on the list until now?? It is to die for! This gets a huge, huge thumbs up from me.
Damon- I've always liked this name based on sound alone. I am partial to the Damien, Darren, Desmond train of thought.
Dominic- That this is even on your list I am taking as a huge compliment to myself, but I doubt I get a real vote. (Biased- I love it)
Ephraim- In general, I am a usually a big fan of this name, though I'm just not sure it gives me the "magical Ottilie baby" vibe
*Evander- So gentlemanly and lovely. Such a great meaning and vowels everywhere! (I like this more than Lysander and Everard)
Hadrian- Beautiful. So many of the sounds that I know you like, but didn't you say your little guy will most likely be blonde?
*Heath- I love this. As a nature name I give this a glowing recommendation. I know a Heath and he is the sweetest!
Hector- Strong, awesome, Eric Bana, awesome, maybe not quite distinct enough? Awesome, but maybe as a mn? I couldn't decide.
Herne- I can't help but love this, but the only issue I wonder about is your one-syllable last name. (I also like Verne but not as much)
Julian- Soft and sweet, and a good way to get the nn Jules (which unfortunately I don't think you can use by itself.)
Leopold- Super handsome choice. It sounds the most suave and dignified of all the Leo names if you ask me, and I like Leo names.
*Orion- I love it. You know I love it. I am happy he gets a second chance back on the list! =]
*Phineas- Ah, a family name from the noble and most ancient house of Black! But seriously(lol) 'Phineas and Ferb' is the greatest children's show on right now and he is an awesome character. I thoroughly look forward to watching it... so amusing and adorable.
Rainier- I love this for you mostly because of the connection to your grandfather, but I definitely think it's a strong contender.
*Remiel- Gorgeous. Ethereal and wonderful. Has Gabriel ever been suggested or eliminated for you guys?
*Roland- Epic epic epic! Orlando might work for you too but that is literally the city I live in so I can't see it objectively as a name...
Theron- Has one of the softest sounds for such a strong hunter name, and I do think it would work well as a first.
I really love all of the H names and the R's. These I would use as middles: Aurelian, Byron, Cicero, Dante, Didier, Etienne, Faramond, Isidore, Jason, Perseus, Robin, Seneca, Socrates, Tiberius, Vasiliy, Vieri. Good luck! =]

Please consider Ambrose as a first name! It's so handsome.Still hoping to change my username Sweet Amara... Fingers crossed!
I loved Elsa before it she was cool I saw her as this mystical, magical, completely unique, baffling and all her own kind of girl. She'd also honour my grandmother and great-grandmother from Deutschland.
Ronan will be my future son's name for the sake of spicy, little boys wearing plaid shirts, running around in kneeless jeans, playing in the mud and being mischievous. And in memory of Ronan Sean Thompson.

Wow, what a list!! I really like your naming style a lot!
Firstly, I'll mention the ones I'd cut from the list:
Xavi (feels like 'er' was cut from Xavier just to stand out, feels a little pretentious)
Villads (I don't know why, but it feels like a dirty word or something)
Thoreau (feels both too last namey and too 'heavy'-- and sounds too much like 'throw')
Tristram (I'm not a fan of the double 'tr' sound)
Seneca (I'd love this name, but I'd feel weird giving the name of a Native American nation to a kid, to me it feels like naming someone Germany or Canada or America or something)
Senna (sounds very feminine, would be a greal girl's name)
Serafim (sounds very feminine also, especially with the rising popularity of Seraphina, and the natural NN Sera)
Socrates (too historically heavy to work I think, like naming a kid Confucius, and feels pretentious for a given name)
Pelleas (almost reads as pelvis)
Octavian (unless it's your eighth kid, octa is too recognizable as the eight prefix (octagon))
Jason (it's not a bad name, I just think compared to the awesomeness of many of your other names, this one is boring)
Junot (Juno seems like it's become a well-recognized girl's name, and this has the feeling of just being a spelling variation of that)
Isidore (feels like a variation of Isidora, like how Isabelle is to Isabella)
Hermes (sounds like herpes)
Herne (NN: Horny)
Faramond (sounds like pheromone)
Eusebios (sounds like a computer language term or something)
Cicero (over the top 'bookish' and feels pretentious as a given name in modern times)
Alexis (as a top 30 name for girls, that'd keep it off the list for me as a boy's name)
Aloysius (I like how nameberry calls it a perfect name for a parrot, it just doesn't hit the 'human-name spot' for me the more I reflect on it)
The ones I really like are (*= the ones I especially like):
Ambrose (but I really really like the Welsh variation of Emrys***)
The ones I didn't mention are all in the decent, but not wonderful category.
