    Going to try to do this in the same format as the girls. I'll try not to go too overboard, but I do love boy names....

    FN Loves:
    Auberon - oooooh LOVE IT
    Aurelian
    Casimir
    Endymion - still my number one, by far
    Evander
    Herne
    Leonidas
    Lucius
    Orpheus
    Ptolemy
    Rainier
    Roderick
    Sylvan

    FN Likes but not Loves:
    Cyrus
    Faramond
    Gawain
    Hadrian
    Isidore
    Lothair
    Perseus
    Romulus

    Veto Points:
    Hector - you know I've always had a beef with Hector...besides being so strongly Hispanic, the name itself is so similar to words like "heckler" that I find it unattractive. You have sooooo many more amazing options that you don't need Hector
    Laszlo - aside from the horrific children's show about Camp Lazlo, the "lazy" association is unfortunate

    Normal Middles
    Antony
    Damon
    Ferdinand
    Gareth
    Hugh
    Odin - in the normal category by virtue of being a famous and widely known diety
    Oliver
    Osiris - see Odin
    Perseus - see Odin
    Robin
    Sebastian
    Thor - see Odin
    Xavier

    Not Normal Middles:
    Altair
    Arion
    Basil
    Bayard
    Calidore
    Dragan - I have to say, I love how such a craggy, masculine, draconic name can mean something as gentle and heartwarming as "dear one" and "precious"
    Faulkner
    Grenfell
    Idris
    Ivo
    Lodestar
    Lorien
    Loxias
    Ranulph
    Shasta
    Sigurd
    Taliesin
    Tiberius
    Valemon - I LOVE this fairytale! May I also recommend Iorek? I believe Iorek Byrnison and the rest of Pullman's panserbjorne were obliquely inspired by the White Bear King.

    Veto Points for Middles:
    Bors - surprised to see this on your list...it doesn't strike you as a thuggish sort of name?
    Cato - women's clothing store, Inspector Clouseau's ninja foil, and an increasingly popular Hunger Games character...you have far lovelier options
    Eglamour - I am immediately reminded of Deadweather and Sunrise, in which the siblings are named Adonis, Venus, and Eggbert. Aphrodite and Eglamour? Darling, you can't.
    Finvarra - while I love his connection to the Daoine Sidhe, there is the whole king of the dead thing...and this name is becoming increasingly popular for girls. Perhaps an alternate link to the Tuatha de Danann, like Nuada, Fiachra, Nemed, Dagda, Lugh, or Delbaeth?
    Lawrence - of Arabia? You can do better
    Mordred - the bastard half-son of Arthur by his sister the sorceress who grows up to bring about the end of Camelot (and whose name sounds like mold and dread and death) ....why....?
    Tresillian - all I can find on this is that it's a tiny village in Cornwall and a widely popular birthing center...unless there's some other special significance, I'd go with some of your other options
    Vladimir - how Russian of you! I can't remember, is there Russian blood in the family? If not, this one seems a bit out of place.

    be back later with some combos!
