Overall thoughts on these names...
Since I'm lengthening my girls' list to a top 20, I figured I'd might as well do it for the boys, too. So I'm throwing around some new options, and I'm curious what you ladies think of these.
Theodore "Teddy" (LOVE Teddy, not so sure about Theodore. It seems quite overplayed and overrated atm? I do love the meaning, "gift of God", though. Is there another way to get to Teddy besides the Ed- names--Edmund, Edward, etc.? I dislike those more than Theodore...)
Shepherd (although I'm leaning more toward this as a MN...)
Although I wouldn't mind expanding my list, I don't want to expand it just for the sake of expanding my list--I want to genuinely like the names, if that makes sense. I'm not entirely opposed to having a top 20 for girls and top 10 for boys. Anything else you think I might like?

Brody - Not a fan because I just don't like the sound. How about Cody? Toby?
Declan - nice. I can see it fitting well with your other boy names.
Joseph "Joe" - totally love! Handsome and classic. Deffo add to your list
Booker - my first thoughts were 'Man Booker Prize' and 'hooker'. Dislike.
Zane - I find it a bit severe.
Judah - I personally prefer Jude, but Judah is ok.
Frederick "Freddie" - really like! Freddie is very cute.
Calvin "Cal" - I find it a little dated. Cal is a handsome nn though.
Theodore "Teddy" - I really like Theodore. Teddy is adorable.
Patrick "Pax" - Love Patrick. Love Paddy, Patch, Trick & Rick, but I can't get behind Pax :/
Lachlan - NMS but fine
Ciaran/Cillian/Killian - Ciaran and Cillian are lovely. I see 'Kill Ian' with Killian
Noah - ditto Lachlan
Dominic "Dom" - Lovely name
Donovan - NMS, but fairly handsome
Atticus "Atti/Gus/Kit" - Never heard of it as a name before. I see 'attic cuss' and imagine someone swearing in their attic.
Gustav "Gus" - really like! I've got a bit of a thing for Norse and Swedish boy names.
Shepherd - I've always found this one a little ridiculous, sorry.
Other suggestions: Caledon, James, Angus, Peter, Cameron, Isaac, Jenson, Jonas, Vincent, Julian, Daniel...

Brody - Not a fan, I'm not much keen on Br- names anyway.
Declan - Like this, handsome and underused
Joseph "Joe" - Like this too, is on my own longlist

Zane - Alright
Judah - Alright, prefer just Jude though
Frederick "Freddie" - Like this, though Freddie's pretty popular in my parts.
Calvin "Cal" - Like this as well, prefer Calvin to Cal though

Lachlan - Like this too
Ciaran/Cillian/Killian - Like Ciaran, not so keen on Cillian/Killian for the 'Kill' sound
Noah - Not keen

Donovan - Not a fan
Atticus "Atti/Gus/Kit" - This always comes across as pretentios to me.
