    I think a lot of these names are "unusable," as in I think they've either "gone to the girls," have too much weight or expectation to them, are too tied to a historical, mythological, or famous person, or would be confusing/problematic as first names.

    I absolutely love these:
    Auden, Brooks, August, Emerson

    These I like and think are very wearable:
    Dorian David Edison Edmund Edward Elijah Ian Barrett Bay Booker Logan Phoenix

    These MIGHT be usable, or are fine to use but not my taste:
    Dune Ace (fine as a nn) Beckham (I do really like this name, it's just that David is so famous!) Caspian Chance Ibis Arrow Morgan Moses Percival Hotaru

    These I think are used to frequently on girls:
    Madison Lex (but Alexander or Alexios nn Lex is great, just not Lex on its own) Haven Harlow Hadley Briar Addison Ainsley Avery Ember Winter Indiana Story Paris Rain

    These are too word-y for my taste:
    Balsam (Maybe Oak or Oakley?) December Independence Indigo (Do you like Indio? For some reason that seems more wearable to me) Ocean Peregrine

    These are too place-namey and I think they'd be impractical:
    Baltimore Britain Egypt Ireland England Amsterdam

    These I think are too tied to a single person (or myth, fictional character, etc.:
    Jupiter Picasso Remus Thor Lazarus Hamlet Perseus Balthazar Aries (Have you considered Orion?)

    I think these are a bit dated:
    Ambrose Anatole Bruce Chester Clyde

    I hope you don't think I'm being too harsh, it's just a VERY long list and I wanted to quickly narrow it down. For me, Auden and Brooks are standouts here- fantastic, shockingly underused names.

    Oh my, this is a long list, haha. I'm bored so I'll comment :-)

    Winter - Don't like it at all.
    Perseus - NMS, nn Percy is better.
    Ace - Sounds like a dog's name.
    Addison - Love this on a boy. Might cause some confusion though with all those little Addies and Maddies.
    Ainsley - Prefer on a girl TBH.
    Ambrose - NMS
    Amsterdam - Just... no.
    Anatole - Don't like.
    Arrow - Nope.
    Auden - It's ok.
    Avery - LOVE this on a boy. Just love. Very sad this has been taken over by the girls :-/
    Balsam - Reminds me of balsamic vinegar.
    Balthazar - No. Reminds me of Charmed.
    Baltimore - Ummm.. no. This is a city (a city I love, but would never name a child after).
    Barrett - Eh.. don't really like it.
    Bay - Not a fan.
    August - Like.
    Aries - No.
    Ember - I actually like this on a boy. It's a GP for me.
    Beckham - No.
    Booker - No.

    Chance - Dog name.
    Chester - NMS but ok.
    Clyde - Too.. "hick" sounding to me, maybe I'm weird.
    Dorian - NMS.
    David - Like. I think it's a good classic name (it's also my dad's name and fiance's BFF's name).
    Edison - NMS.
    Edmund - NMS but I like it better than Edward.
    Edward - Don't like.
    December - No.
    Dune - No.
    Briar - NMS.
    Britain - No.
    Brooks - NMS.
    Egypt - No.
    Elijah - Love!
    Emerson - NMS.
    England - No.
    Hadley - Don't really like it.
    Hamlet - NMS.
    Harlow - I do think it sounds more masculine than feminine (don't get why people are giving this to girls) but I'm still not a fan.
    Haven - NMS.
    Hotaru - NMS.
    Ian - Love!!
    Ibis - Don't like.

    Ireland - No.
    Jupiter - No.
    Lazarus - Eh.. no.

    Paris - No.
    Percival - It's ok.
    Peregrine - No.
    Phoenix - No.
    Picasso - No.
    Rain - No. I could get behind it as a middle.
    Remus - NMS.
    Story - No.
    Thor - No.


    Time for the ones that are VERY obviously guilty pleasures :P
    Symphony - No.
    Shadow - No. This is very much a pet's name to me.
    Solstice - No.
    Onyx - No.
    Frontier - No.
    Persimmon - No, although you could use Persy/Percy as a nn.
    Earth - No.
    Equinox (could it actually work, nn Nox?) - No.
    Galileo - No.
    Shire - Maybe, but leaning towards no.
    Severn - Meh.
    Noir - No.
    Juniper - No.
    Cedar - No.
    Poem - No.
    Brick - No.
    Heathrow - This is usable IMO, though really NMS.

    I should also mention I'm not a fan of most word and place names, so that's why I don't like a lot of the ones I don't like.
    Top 10 girl's names: Serena * Audrey * Sienna * Bridget * Lucy * Hazel * Cordelia * Josephine * Claire * Alice
    Top 10 boy's names: Elliott * Callum * Theodore * Emmett * Nolan * Ian * Blake * Brennan * Adrian * Everett

    Lots of names you like are the same as the ones we are considering for a boy (we are in Australia and due in August)
    The ones I am thinking of using are:
    Ambrose - i love this, so underused (which is what we like )
    Arrow - my husband makes bows so probably a bit much but maybe as a mn
    Avery - not actually liking this one but we love Fern for a girland Avery is Fern's sister in Charlotte's Web
    Bay - love but would probably only use as a mn
    Caspian - love this but doesn't really go with our last name
    Percival
    Peregrine - this is our front runner at the moment
    Rain - on our list but for a girl as Raine

    Others we like are:
    Amos
    Caspar
    Arlo

    We already have Oscar, Marco, Orrin and Felix in the family but I like those too
    Long time name lover...

    DD - Iris Ophelia (2011)
    D? - due August... Peregrine Lyons or Aurelia ?????
