    I like Beresford and Oxford and brother middle names very much. But as first names, I'm afraid I think they're too similar. I like them both individually, but I like Beresford slightly more

    I would wonder if a child named Oxford had parents who desperately wanted him to attend an Ivy League university.
    Fyodor Xavier? Fyodor is almost Oxford, minus the X. Or Feodor if you prefer. You could use the nn Fox.

    It's pretentious because of the university. The "ox" part isn't flattering either. Oxen are stubborn and stupid.

    I think it's insufferably pretentious. It also makes me think of preppy footwear. Not good associations.

    I'd worry about teasing in relation to "ox."
    Finnegan is lovely.
