    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!

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