    That's quite a list, lengthwise.

    Names that I think are very usable, that I like, or aren't too out there for a kid:

    Winter - Fine, prefer it as a middle, might be hard for a boy to carry, but not impossible.
    Perseus - Very usable. It's not my style, but it's not my kid, is it?
    Ace - cute, but insubstantial
    Ambrose - I like it. Distinguished, funky, but usable. Might sound a little uppity to some.
    Anatole - One of my favourites on your list. I prefer the Russian variation, Anatoly.
    Arrow - Cute. Works better as a middle for me, but not impossible as a first at all.
    Avery - Very workable. I like it.
    Balthazar - Prefer it spelled Balthasar (a little less Disney-villain). I like it a lot, but it might be a hard name to cary? Nickname Zar could be cool.
    Barrett - Okay. Very usable.
    Bay - Funky, I like it. I think its use on Once Upon a Time for Rumpel's son makes it usable for a boy.
    August - a great name. The nick Gus is super cute, as well.
    Booker - One of my favourites. I'd have used it were I not black. I was afraid people would think I was naming him after Booker T. Washington, who I'm not fond of.
    Bruce (family name, maybe mn?) - I like it as a first or a middle.
    Caspian - Cool.
    Clyde - Cool.
    Dorian - Cool.
    David - Cool, maybe dull.
    Edmund
    Edward
    Dune - Cool. I haven't heard this before. Naturey and kind of a nice science fiction nod.
    Briar
    Elijah
    Ian
    Jupiter - I know a little girl named this. She's adorable. Probably works even better on a boy. We call her Jupe. Jove is also a workable nickname.
    Lazarus
    Logan - very blah and trendy compared to some of your other choices.
    Morgan
    Moses
    Ocean - Interesting. It could work.
    Paris - I hate the mythological figure. It was cute on Rory's friend, though.
    Percival - All right.
    Phoenix - A lot. Maybe for a middle?

    On your guilty pleasure list, I think Onyx could work fairly easily. Also, Juniper and Cedar.

    A lot of your place names left me rather cold, especially the rather random ones, like Baltimore. It's a strange city to name a kid after.


    Mary | Elsbeth | Clotilde | Everild | Beatrix | Junia | Tabitha | Gwendolen | Octavia | Eve | March | Edwen

    Simeon | Lionel | Barnabus | Ezekiel | Hector | Ignatius | August | Jove | Sayer | Booker | Mariner | Cecil | Godfrey

    I won't comment on all of the names, but I made a list of my favorites, names I like ok, names I think would work best in the middle, and names I don't think work AT ALL. So I guess I'm just leaving out the names I think could work, but don't do anything special for me.

    Love:
    Ambrose
    Balthazar
    August
    Caspian
    Edmund
    Morgan
    Moses
    Percival
    Peregrine

    Like:
    David
    Edward
    Ian

    Fun Middles:
    Remus
    Arrow
    Bay
    Briar
    Ember

    Dislike:
    Addison -- This is a trendy/popular girl's name these days
    Pretty much all of the place names-- You have some uncommonly heard choices here, but that just makes me feel even more that they do not belong as names. The only one I like at all is Phoenix.
    Picasso-- has an association too strong to work on a child, in my opinion.
    Indigo -- I think this name is lovely on a girl, but I'm not sold on the other gender.
