Blaise...I use to think this was way too much but I've come around to it lately.
Cyprian...I've been crushing on this myself lately and it's a longtime hubby favorite.
Jude...We would have named my daughter this if she had been a boy.
Leo...St. Leo is awesome!
Peter....such an underused manly classic
I eliminated Andrew which I love because Drew is to close to Dean. Similarly, Damien which is awesome is a bit much with brothers Dean and Dominic. I have a Paul which for me has ruled out Peter as Sts. Peter and Paul are so closely associated with each other, but not everyone sees it that way and Peter is a great name.

Like I did with your girl list, Top 10 are bolded!
Andrew - Handsome
Anthony - Love it
Blaise - Not a fan..
Charles - Handsome but kinda boring
Christopher - Like it, maybe middle name?
Constantine - Not pretentious, but definitely as a middle name. There's no good nn's and its too long for everyday
Cyprian - Its okay, I'd like Cyprus or Silas or Cyrus more.
Damien - I like it but its so tied to horror films that I won't actually use it.
Dimitri - Always liked this one, but not its meaning. I had it as Demitry on my list.
Duke - again, pretentious? better as an MN? Yes, MN.
Elliot/Eliot - I cannot decide on spelling - I like Elliott
Francis - better as an MN? MN! I really dislike this name. It's never been attractive to me.
Ignatius - Cute! Iggy is adorable.
Jackson or Jack - I like plain ol' Jack. It's strong and handsome.
Jensen - Cute
Jude - Nice name, short and sweet.
Leo - I like it but its short on its own.
Lionel - too tied to Lionel Richie? - Yes, how about Leonel nn Leo?
Nicholas/Nikolas - again can't decide on spelling - Nicholas is classic, but Nikolas is more fun!
Owen - Simple but nice.
Peter - Dislike. Dirty nickname for something. Just not very attractive IMO.
Roman - Very nice! Love it!
Samuel - Handsome and strong but I personally hate it and Sam for random reasons.
Sebastian - I like it but couldn't get over it if he were called Bastard by mean kids. Its just too close for me.
Simon - Handsome, kinda nerdy, but I like it! (I like Simone for a girl even more)
Stavros - Bold and unique, but perhaps better as a MN.
Theodore - Considering this one myself, but only as nn Theo. Love it.
Vincent - Love it, using it for next boy's middle name.
Xavier - I also like this one.
