    I actually really like Bartlett. Other than that, there are few others that I like.

    I agree most of these would be really hard for a child to pull of today, but I could just see a little Rutherford and Winthrop back in 1910. Personally I really like Dabney, but again I think it would be hard for a kid to pull it off....

    Hey, Thurlow is on there! That has been my top boy's name ever since I began reading Lincoln's biography Team of Rivals. I think Thurlow is a perfect name. My husband could be easily swayed to like it too. Thurlow Dan is my combo. The only thing that could stop me from using it is our mutual love for the name Lane instead.

    I also see Grosvenor on the list, which I hate. I wrote a newspaper article about Grosvenor Atterbury, a famous historical architect, and I couldn't get over how clunky his name was. It feels horrible to say aloud, but perhaps I don't know the correct pronunciation.

    Glover is kind of nice. I had Grover on my list previously as kind of a guilty pleasure, but Glover as a first is charming and doesn't have the Sesame Street association. More surnamey, though. Demetrius has always been a favourite.

    A few of the names on this list are really out there. What's this from? Theophylact? Seriously?
