    New boy names -- opinions?

    So in the process of looking for some Scottish girl names I came across a bunch of new boy names, and I would love some opinions on them! Since there's been a lot of 1-5 rating recently feel free to do that (or however else you would like, I'm not picky). If you rate a name really low, I would appreciate it if you gave the reasoning behind it. Thanks!

    Alasdair
    Angus
    Callum
    Conall
    Duncan
    Ferguson
    Glenn
    Gordon
    Grant
    Harris
    Lachlan
    Lewis
    Malcolm
    Rogan
    Ross
    Seamus
    Struan
    Tavish
    Wallace

    LOVE Grant and Ross! I recently made a thread about Ross, but it didn't get very many comments--I'm curious to see if you get any more comments on it than I did! I am thinking about Ross (and Grant, actually) as middle names--I would be happy to meet a little boy with either name, but I feel like they're more MN contenders for me.

    Good luck!

    Callum, Lachlan, and Tavish are my favorites because they're not common, easy to pronounce, and not "boring" imo. I like Seamus but do not like that other people think of semen when they see the name

    Alasdair - handsome. Not very wearable/approachable in the US though.
    Angus - I don't like this name because it reminds me of beef.
    Callum- love
    Conall - love. Love the nn Con.
    Duncan - never really liked this. Not quite sure why, something about dun+can. Plus it reminds me of Dunkin Donuts (US, again)
    Ferguson - too surnamey for me but ok.
    Glenn - not really a fan of this one. Feels dated to me.
    Gordon - I like this.
    Grant - nice enough.
    Harris- too surnamey for me.
    Lachlan - handsome.
    Lewis - I don't like this spelling of this name.
    Malcolm - nice.
    Rogan - on the fence with this one, it's a bit close to Rogaine.
    Ross - I like this
    Seamus - nice
    Struan - don't know this name but first reaction was negative.
    Tavish - love.
    Wallace - love.
