I voted to cut Roland. As much as I love the heroic literary Roland, I think the name is far too similar to Rayhan.
I like Conrad's meter when paired with Rayhan. And Jasper seems like it fits hand-in-glove with the Chinese naming tradition of nature-related names, with a great historical/literary/mythological namesake (Jasper likely comes fro Caspar/Gaspard, one of the three Magi in the Christmas story).XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)
XX: Cassia Viviane Noor (11.30.2013)

Thanks for the replies everyone!
@Blade, I just wanna say, I consistently really really appreciate your insights on this baby naming reflection process. It seems like almost every reply you've made, in various posts, has caused me to think about something that I hadn't before considered in quite that way. It's been truly helpful. You have an ability to find subtle connections of meaning that I often overlook. In this case, I had never even considered how aligned choosing a nature related name is to the Chinese culture baby naming process (not for every name, but very commonly nonetheless). With the help of this connection (combined with my general appreciation for the name and it's history, etc) I now feel confident Jasper will be remaining in the top 4 or 5.Updated Name List- http://www.ebabynames.com/list/eff115- Vote away...

I'm glad Amias is back! It's still my favorite on your list.
I voted to cut Jasper, because I just don't like it. Probably for no good reason-It just sets my teeth on edge. Now that I've thought about some more though, I would cut Roland too. It's a little too matchy with Rayhan. Conrad is such a great, strong name.Trying, trying, trying
