    If I was to be totally honest and remove all names I can't see working on a child, it would leave you with:

    Ash
    Aurelius
    Caspar
    Eamon
    Earnest
    Ephraim
    Evander
    Ezekiel
    Ezra
    Felix
    Ignatius
    Indigo
    Isidore
    Ivo
    Leander
    Leonidas
    Lionel
    Lysander
    Marius
    Peregrine
    Phineas
    Samson
    Seamus
    Sylvan
    Thaddeus
    Valentin
    Zamir
    Zephyr

    ^ Though not all my style, these are fine and I can see them working well on a boy of any age.

    All the middles are fine, but I'd get rid of Loyal and Noble. You can instil loyalty as a value rather than bestow it as a name. And Noble sounds ridiculous, sorry. Noble gases? The nobility? It'd be a joke if he ended up anything but!

    For first or middle:
    Apollo- great for a middle
    Aurelius- LOVE!
    Caspar- One of my top names ever.
    Eamon- very cool. It's unique, but familiar.
    Earnest- Great as a mn
    Eben- LOVE! Ebenezer is too Scrooge.
    Ephraim- Wonderful name that I rarely hear used. Tried to sell it for DH, but failed.
    Evander- I still think of the boxer.
    Ezra- Love
    Falcon- This could be a cool mn. I also love Shaheen, a Persian boys name that I think means eagle... or falcon... Also, if you like nature names, have you checked out Chayton?
    Felix- great name for a cat.
    Finch- The Grinch?
    Fox- cool middle name.
    Gulliver- too out there
    Heron- No, but I do like Huron as a mn.
    Homer- Simpson... no
    Huckleberry- Finn... only as a mn, but that's even pushing it.
    Ignatius- Cool as a mn. I also like Cyprian, on the same vein.
    Indigo- Girly. Also sounds like Indie, go!
    Isidore- only as a mn.
    Ivo- No.
    Journey- Band name? Not a fan. Strikes me like Trinity or Destiny...
    Leander- Very cool... what about Oleander?
    Leonidas- Only as a mn, but it seems hard to wear.
    Linden- <3
    Lionel- Ritchie? Not a fan.
    Lysander- Very cool, esp. as a mn.
    Marius- Love the Les Mis connection. Love this (esp. as a mn)
    Nemo- Not a very good meaning, and it's too cartoony.
    Orion- Loved this one since childhood, but it's a cookie company here (in China). A very manly, stellar, nature choice. Although I do have some issues with the myth.
    Peregrine-I don't really like this, and I'm not sure why.
    Philo- sounds like a kind of dough.
    Phineas- Love.
    Pilgrim- Is that John Wayne's ghost yelling "Howdy, Pilgrim"??? Not a fan. Pilgrims were waaaaaaay too conservative, and that led to witch hunts.
    River- Very hippie. I only like this as a mn.
    Samson- Love... wish I saw this one more.
    Seamus- Ditto.
    Sorrel- Honestly sounds a bit girly.
    Sylvan- Ditto.
    Thaddeus- I love this, but would worry it's a lot of name.
    Valentin- Love
    Viridian- Wait, what?
    Wolf- Too easy to be ironic. A scrawny, weak, be-acned kid named Wolf? Almost laughable...
    Wren- Girly.
    Zamir- I much prefer Samir.
    Zephyr- Sounds like a car brand or a name in a low budget sci fi film...

    Middle only:
    Charles- Nice, safe...
    Everest- love as a mn...
    Fergus- :P
    George- Also nice and safe...
    Isaiah- Ditto.
    Jacob- Ditto
    James- Filler mn
    Jasper- Love
    Kai- ok... not great...
    Loyal- Not a fan
    Ludovic-Too much
    Noble- Not a fan
    Oberon- Very cool
    Oliver- bland
    Silas- Very nice
    Sky- Girly... What about Caelum (Kai-lum, Latin for sky)
    Stellan- Ok... not great
    Theodore- A vintage fav
    Victor- Not a fan
    Vincent- Ditto
    William- Just ok

    Thanks for the comments and suggestions so far! Honest opinions are what I want and then it's up to me/us to decide whether we agree or not.

    I really like the suggestion of Cyprian.

    River James, Wolf Everest and Evander Charles were the ones I liked best of the suggested combos.

    Some of the middlenames are there for family significance, others just other mn material.

    Keep the comments coming!
    Love,
    Zelda
