Honest opinions on my list of favorites?
I'm currently trying to narrow down my boy and girl lists. I need opinions, suggestions, comments - whatever will help. I already have one daughter named Nora Cathleen (called both Nora and Nora Cate).
Here's my boy list:
Sebastian Eli (Can't decide on nickname and I would like one. I like Bas, Bastien, Bash, Baz - opinions?)
Declan James (Another nickname debacle. I like Dec, Dex/Decs, Deke - opinions? I believe Deke is the most "traditional" nickname but I've heard all 3 used.)
Reid JeffreyMom to Nora Cathleen.
Declan (Decs/Dex). Miles (Milo). Dean. Ewan. Dexter (Dex). John (Johnny). Max. Bodhi (Bo). Leo.
Gwyneth (Gwen). Elise. Bronwen (Bonnie). Piper. Josephine (Josie). Margot. Sylvie. Wilhelmina (Willa). Hazel.

Milo James - I always think of the movie Milo & Otis when I hear Milo. Cute movie but I couldn't use it as a name.
Sebastian Eli - I love Sebastian, the nickname is what stops me too.
Lyle Jameson - Not a Lyle fan - very country. And Jameson is a whiskey.
Declan James - I like both of these. You could even use the nickname DJ if you like initial nicknames.
Gavin Joseph - Like both of these as well.
Ewan Charles - Ewan is not my style but I do like Charles.
Dean Patrick - okay
Ian Richard - A good combo.
Ronan Elias - Has a great sound.
Keith Dennis - I never hear any of these two used - maybe sort of dated but that might be a good thing.
Reid Jeffrey - I like the spelling Reed better
Declan & Sebastian are my faves from your list.

Milo James - It's nice, though sometimes I feel like James is a sort of throwaway middle name.
Sebastian Eli - Sebastian is my absolute favorite boys name. I'm personally not a nickname person, and I don't like the typical nicknames for Sebastian, i.e. I don't like the ones you listed. But I recently heard Ash as an option, and I really, really liked that.
Lyle Jameson - Has a nice flow, but I don't really like either name.
Declan James - I've never been into Declan, but again, has a really nice flow. Dex would be my favorite nn for Declan...could Lenny work?
Gavin Joseph - Gavin is my second favorite boys name ever! This is a very nice combination. Don't love Joseph, but it works well here.
Ewan Charles - In theory, I should like Ewan, but I just don't think it has a pleasant sound.
Dean Patrick - I like Patrick, but don't like Dean at all. Can't imagine a child with this name.
Ian Richard - Ian is nice; Richard seems dated.
Ronan Elias - Hmm...Not sure actually how I feel about this one. Maybe it's just not my style. Ronan has potential.
Keith Dennis - This is super dated to me - sounds like a middle aged man. My least favorite on your list.
Reid Jeffrey - This is nice, though I strongly prefer Jeffrey spelled Geoffrey. It just looks more classic and distinguished to me.
Some additional combo suggestions that jumped out at me using names from your list:
