Note: Lucia- 'loo-see-a', Irina- 'eye-ree-na'. Official names in brackets and they are just that 'official'.

Emery - Too much like the nail file. Amory is still in the boys camp so I think it's a better option.
Alec - Alexander nn Alec would be my preference.
Leon - I know this name is popular in parts of Europe but to me it's "dated". Too many rough bullies were named Leon when I was growing up.
Morven - too much like geeky Marvin and Milton
Emeric - Ok but nothing exciting. I don't like the "ric" sound very much.
Clive - an English name that sounds like a hick
Alaric - I used to like this name when I was younger but now it's lost its appeal for some reason (the "ric" could be the issue).All the best,

Ambrose - like, but feels very posh and hard to wear
Emery - feels kind of feminine, prefer Emrys for a boy
Alastair - I really like this one
Alec, Caspar, Noel, Gareth, Clive - not really keen on these
Rowan - only like this on a girl, prefer Roan for a boy
Leon - it's ok
Morven - I've only ever heard of this for a girl and prefer it for girls
Emeric - not keen, reminds me of emetic
Alaric - I like this, but not sure if it's easy to wear. And not keen on Al or Ric as a nn.
Like Alastair best.Mum to Mousie, Foo, Bumptious and Pudding.

Ambrose is a really great name, but I'd prefer it as a middle name (Emrys is the Welsh variation, which is one of my favorite names, and also seems to fit with the style you like)
Emery is a nice name, but I much prefer Emrys
Alastair is great. Noble.
Alec is okay, though it feels a little insubstantial to me.
Casper is a great name, though I prefer Jasper.
Rowan isn't bad, but not of the same caliber to some of your other choices.
Noel I'm not such a fan of.
Gareth is okay, I prefer Garrett (sp?) a bit more though. Neither are of the same caliber as some of your other names though.
Leon is decent, though I prefer Lionel or Leonidas or Leopold quite a bit more.
Morven I don't like at all. Feels harsh.
Emeric (Emmerich) is a great name, one I considered for awhile, until I realized I liked Emrys a lot more.
Clive feels a little harsh to me also, but I can understand the appeal.
Alaric is another one I was looking at for quite some time, and would be high on my own list if it didn't sound too similar to my brother's name.Updated Name List- http://www.ebabynames.com/list/eff115- Vote away...
