Comments on these boy names? Pairing ideas?
I've got a lot of great suggestions and now I would like to get some feedback on boy names I'm considering. For an idea of potential sibling names, please see the names in my signature. Though admittedly I am still trying to find my "groove" with boy names; it's difficult.
You can comment... make combinations... whatever appeals to you. Either way it should help me out by seeing what you think.
* = name has personal significance outside me liking it
First or middle name use:
Middle name ONLY:

Abram- Love! Bram and Abe are both cool.
Atlas- I prefer this as a mn. Although I know it can be a name, it seems a bit like Encyclopedia or dictionary.
Atticus- Love the literary connection, but not a fan of 'Attic'...
Barnaby- Never liked this name.
Benedict- Cool as a middle name, but too Benedict Arnold for a first name.
Benoit- People would mispronounce it. Probably better as a mn...
Blair- One of the few names I truly find unisex. Love it!
Byron- Distinguished and poetic. Love!
Casimir- Love this name!
Caspian- One of my top names ever... so knightly and romantic!
Cormac-Love, love, love! The nn Mac would be great.
Crispin- I just think of Crispy.
Cyril- Nice, but I prefer Cyrus.
Cyrus- Founder of human rights and religious freedom. Love!
Desmond- I like it... it's familiar, but different. I think of "Desmond and Molly Jones" from the Beatle's song "Obladi Oblada Life Goes On... Whoaaa, la la la la life goes on!"
Devon- I highly recommend Devin with an i, not an o. This is my older brother's name, and I have to say I have mixed feelings. I think the scales may have gone back towards it being a boy name, but it was quite unisex there for awhile. So, he did struggle a bit with getting teased growing up (he even won prom queen). So, I have mixed feelings...
Duncan- LOVE!!! Such a great name!
Eamon- Very cool name! Loving your taste!
Edgar- There was a horrible movie called "Little Edgar"... I can only think of that. Plus, Edgar sounds like a cartoon character (something like Porky Pig).
Emerson- I do love this name, but it is becoming quite unisex. If I used it, I'd pair it with a strong, masculine name.
Evren- Obviously, I love it (please refer to my signature)! It's a Turkish unisex name meaning 'universe, cosmos'... I love the meaning, and it's similar enough to Evan to pass while still being different... Kinda like Ever, but a bit more legit.
Gideon- I'm always on the fence about this one.
Hector- very common among Hispanics where I'm from. Don't know why, but I've never really taken to it...
Hugh- Love! I prefer this to Hugo, as it's unpretentious and simple.
Iker- Not a fan.
Indio- Not a fan.
Irving- I actually really wish this name would make a comeback. Vintage and cool, but totally unique.
Julius*- Love. So powerful and regal... just don't name the other kid Brutus.
Keller*- Alright, but a bit trendy. I might prefer it as a mn (depending on the meaning to you).
Kendrick*- On the fence about this one...
Lance- Love! Another vintage name that needs to make a comeback. It's so short, but I love the sound.
Levon- Not really a fan.
Lorcan- Just don't like the sound.
Magnus- This makes me think of something sexual...
Neil- I knew brothers named Hugh and Neil... I loved their names, as they were both short, simple, and down-to-earth.
Nikolai- It's ok.
Nolan- Just ok.
Orion- A favourite of mine... I love the star meaning, although I have mixed feelings about the story of Orion...
Oscar- Just ok... I know too many Oskars...
Otto- Love! I've never known an Otto, but it would make a really cool name.
Ozias- On the fence, although Oz could be a cool nn.
Rafferty- Like, but don't love. Rafe could be a nice nn.
Raphael- Love x 1000! I do think of the TMNT, but that's only positive. I've never known a non-Hispanic, non-Italian, non-French Raphael, so it would be nice to meet a wider variety!
Roarke- I like this better as a mn, as I think it barks a bit... but it is nice.
Ruben*- Love! This is such a great name, and I just adore the nns Ru and Ben/ Benny...
Silvan- Learning Center...
Soren- Refer to signature again. I love this name, although there are downsides: Sore and Sarin Gas... But I love the connection to Kirkegaard and the Suren-Pahlavi clan...
Thiago- Too out there for me.
Middle name ONLY:
Kasey* (this spelling honors)
Noel- Great as a mn
Paul- I actually really love Paul...
Rupert- Could be nice
Winter- A bit girly...
Evren Paul/ Evren Alexander
Blair Oberon/ Blair Donovan
