    Please help me beef up my boy name list!

    I am only here for my love of names, and I need help to expand my boy list. I have always had a harder time finding boy names that I love than I have finding girl names. My #1 favorite is Lucian, and I would love to use this one day if I could ever convince my SO! Of the other two names, Gavin is out because a coworker is due with a boy in either June or July (I can't remember) and she is naming him Gavin. Cedric is also out because as much as I love the name (and its connection with Harry Potter ) it still always makes me think of Cedric the Entertainer as soon as I hear it.

    So, any suggestions for names that are similar in style and might go well with Lucian, provided I use the name and ever have more than one son?

    Thanks in advance!
    Girls: Cordelia, Phoebe, Rose

    Boys: Lucian, Alexander, Liam

    Alternatives for Gavin -
    Don't cross Gavin off your list until your co-worker truly names gives her son this name. There are countless examples of people thinking their kids going to be _____ and then they meet them and just find it doesn't fit at all.
    Suggestions: Gawain, Gustav, Geoffrey, Ervin, Marvin, Calvin, Oliver, and Collin.

    Alternatives for Cedric - Alaric, Ulric, Orrin, Ethan, Silas, and Corbin.

    Thanks for your suggestions! Lexiem, I will keep that in mind about Gavin. I confirmed today that she's due in July...we'll see!

    Here are the names that I like from the suggestions:

    Evander, August, Rafael, Silas, Desmond, Donovan, Calvin, and Collin. Any more suggestions based on those?

    I have been thinking about Magnus a lot lately, but I don't think I could picture it on a baby. Roderick makes me think of the TV show The Following, and not in a good way. I have a friend named Geoffrey and another spelled Jeffrey, so I wouldn't use that. And I love Oliver, but could never use it, because it's the name of my dad's pet pig!
