Dominic "Dom" - nice, strong name. Dom could easily be confused for "dumb," just throwing that out there. I'm just picturing an awkward introduction somewhere down the road..."Let me introduce my son, Dom" and the person is thinking, "Her son, Dumb??" Haha.
Ciaran - cool way to honor your mom; I'd put it in the middle.
Killian/Cillian - I don't fancy this one. Quillan, perhaps? Which is technically supposed to be pronounced like Killan but I don't know of anyone that does.
Ian - It's fine, not really remarkable one way or another. I had a friend named Ian growing up, and it drove him crazy because people always said EYE-ann instead of EE-an. I think it's a bit more common now than it was then, though.
Toby - No, thanks. It always makes me think of toes. Grubby toes.
Sebastian - I like this one and I think it can only improve your list! You're amassing a collection of -ian ending names! Pretty soon you'll fall off into Lewis territory...Rilian, Tirian, Drinian, Caspian, etc., etc. :-D
Josiah - I really like this one. I seriously would have used it as a mn by now, but doesn't it figure I know someone by the name I don't wish to name after. AND I still really like the name.
Bryn, Ianto, Rhys, no, not too out there for middle name use. As far as moving them up to first name, I like Ianto a lot (I guess you can take that with a grain of salt since my taste is not very mainstream), and I like Rhys too (in spite of Reece on the girls side). I don't personally like Bryn as a first name, but that's because I like Brenn for girls better.
Zane Fielding: yes. Yay vote here!

@saracita00 - lol. Well, I'm a fan of Narnia, I wouldn't put it past me. I'd still like to get Caspian on my list as a MN. I probably wouldn't use them all--I think Ciaran and Killian are already gone from the possibilities, and I'm not sure I can really see me with a Sebastian, much as I love the Twelfth Night tie (and the nn Seb!). At this point, I think this is my list:
Atticus (not sure of a nn--I can't really see me using Gus or Ace, and while I like the idea of Atticus nn Kit, I adore Catherine nn Kit, so I probably wouldn't use that. Atti? Too close to Addy?)
With Calvin "Cal", Patrick "Pax", Ian, Joseph, and Lev as possibilities, as well. I'm not sure how I feel about them all though, some of them could easily axed.Lise

Dominic "Dom" - Love. It reminds me of Vin Diesel in the Fast and Furious movies, which are right up there in my favorites
Ciaran - I like it. I want to like it more, since I've had it on my list before, but in the end I had to take it off because I just didn't like it enough. You may be having the same issue.
Killian/Cillian - Similar story to Ciaran for me. Like it in the past, like it in general, but probably for other people rather than myself.
Ian - Love!
Toby - I think Toby or Tobin would both be rather cute.
Josiah - My perception of this name changes day to day. Today, I sort of like it. I wouldn't use it for myself as I feel so wishy-washy, but I think I'd be happy meeting a little Josiah.
Bryn - Would be cool on a boy. I slightly prefer for girl.
Ianto - Love this one. I'd feel comfortable using it for a FN but it all depends on how adventurous you are.
Rhys - Handsome and I think people wouldn't have a hard time accepting it.
Zane Fielding - Not my type of name. I've never liked Zane and Fielding reminds me too strongly of the word to think of it as a name.
