Classic, accessible names that I can see on a little boy with few to no problems
Eoin (may want to consider Owen if you live in the US, but I’m a sucker for the Eoin spelling!)
More unusual, but still very usable
Demetrius – I went to school with a few Demetri’s, so this name doesn’t seem like a stretch to me, but it might depend on where you live.
Edwyn – I prefer the spelling Edwin, which would stick it in the classic category for me.
Ilyas – Is this pronounced the same as Elias? If so, Elias would be more user friendly.
Would give me pause, but the right boy might pull it off
Passable as funky middle names only;
Just say no
Eros – Would you want to be named after the messenger of love during your teenage years?
Io – A feminine name, whose unfortunate bearer was turned into a cow
Lithium – Chemistry lessons would be awful for this kid
Marquis – I find overt title names such as Marquis, Princess, Duke, etc. pretentious.
Mordred – Bit Disney villanish
Polydeuces – You drop a deuce. Poly means many…
Priapus – Keep reading this as Papyrus
Raiden – I just really don’t like this name
