    Tear Apart my Boys List

    I have a tendency to ignore my boys list, since I don't find boys names as fun as girls names- plus I love a small pool of boys names, while I always find girls names that I swoon over. But after looking at my signature, I think my top ten needs a late spring cleaning.
    So with the poll I've set up, vote on what you think should be cut. Feel free to comment why one combo should stay and why one should go.
    Also, I've got a new found fondness for the name Benedict- what goes well in the middle?
    Thanks so much in advance!

    Thank you for the replies so far! I'm on the fence about Percival Julius- I think there are too many awkward sounds in it.
    I wonder, why do you guys not like Darwin Elliot?

    Cut Percival Julius. I'm sorry, but Percival Julius sounds like some massively prissy British nobleman who saunters about his manor wearing a bathrobe and slippers monogrammed with his family coat of arms. Percival Jude would be an improvement.

    These are my favorites from your list:

    Darwin Elliot
    Crispin Avery
    Alistair Henry
    Edmund Atlas
    Frederick Archer

    ETA: Leopold Darcy was #5, but I said it out loud and realized that I couldn't differentiate where Leopold ended and Darcy began. It comes out as Leopold Arcy or Leopol Darcy.
