    Could these exotic, foreign-sounding names work?

    I am trying to build my boys names list, and I have found a number of names that I love, but am not sure if they would work for a likely fair-skinned, light-haired boy in the US. I guess some of these fall into the guilty pleasure category for me, but I'm curious to see how many people think they could actually work. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the wearability of these names as well as what you think of them in general!

    Dmitri
    Diego
    Lars
    Mordecai (w/ nn Cai/Kai)
    Brahms (as a middle)
    Marcellus
    Almonzo

    Thank you!
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

    I think Lars, Marcellus, and Almonzo all could.

    The only names that I don't think work well would be Almonzo and Diego.

    Agreed. The rest are quite versatile.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Wren or Simon Adler | Alice Violetta or Atlas Dov | Julian 'Jules' River or Juniper 'Joon' Lovelace | Roscoe Fox or Marlowe Fritz | Jane Lucinda or Lucien Wilde | Louisa Valor or Eloise March | Ivan Elliot or Iris Cordelia | August Jack or Jasper Hale | Dashiell Jude or Judah Reeve | Thea Marina or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Finnegan Wallace or Felix Raphael
