    Lightbulb Usable guilty pleasures?

    I cite these names as "guilty pleasures", mainly because I don't know if they're usable or not. Which of the following do you find usable, if any?

    I don't think I would balk at seeing an Atlas, Constantine, Hector, Nicola, Ren, Valentine, or Viggo.

    I find these usable:
    Orpheus
    Faramir
    Sherlock
    Viggo
    Ulysses
    Thorin
    Aurelian
    Constantine
    Galileo
    Valentine
    Hemingway

    Ren and Nicola are girl names.

    Atlas is the only absolutely not in my opinion. I'd advice against Loki as he was a horrid horrid "man". I'm on the fence with Ichabod.

    Every single one is usable, (well, maybe not Loki or Sherlock) especially if paired with something more solid and sedate. It diminishes the whimsy/ shock value while letting the beautiful qualities of the unusual name shine.

    I.e. Viggo Alexander-- smashing. John Ptolemy-- excellent. Nicola Ren = ?

    Edit: Ottilie's right about Nicola (Niccolo is the boys' name), but Ren spelled thusly is a Japanese male name; Rin is the girls' name.
