What's wrong with this name?
In a previous thread, I got some feedback that Stellan Xavier was a very strange combo and imbalanced somehow... but I never got a response as to how/why.
I'm not the best with flow, and I've been curious ever since. It sounds good to me! I say Xavier "ex-ZAY-vee-yer" or close to that anyway.
Would Stellan Rhys be much better? Rhys is my go-to middle name. It works with almost everything!
While you're here, if anyone feels like pointing out any other combos in my signature that are or are not working, please feel free!

It seems likely that the person who made that comment was pronouncing Xavier without the "ex" at the beginning, a common way to pronounce the name. However, I prefer your pronunciation and I think Stellan Xavier sounds marvelous. I prefer it, in fact, to Stellan Rhys. As for the names in your signature, I think they are all wonderful, though something about the double syllable pair Milo Vincent does give me a bit of a pause (not anything I'd consider important enough to discard the name for, though).
