    mbrow222: Thanks so much! I appreciate the combos; they sound very handsome together. I particularly like Keller Wesley, Orion Alexander, Oscar Julian, & Raphael Winter.

    Any other takers as far as answering?

    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.
    Felix- Cat.
    Gideon- I'm always on the fence about this one.
    Heath- Love!
    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.
    Ivo- ?
    Jem- Girly.
    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.
    Viggo- Ditto...
    Zephyr- Ditto...
