    Classic, accessible names that I can see on a little boy with few to no problems
    Aaron
    Alastair
    Benjamin
    Caleb
    Charles
    Damon
    Eoin (may want to consider Owen if you live in the US, but I’m a sucker for the Eoin spelling!)
    Francis
    Gabriel
    Ivan
    Julian
    Kieran
    Leopold
    Lucas
    Luke
    Nathaniel
    Rupert
    Ruben
    Sebastian
    Seth
    Tristan
    Vincent

    Xander

    More unusual, but still very usable

    Alaric
    Alejandro
    Armando
    Carlisle
    Cassius
    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.
    Julius
    Lucien
    Lyall
    Roman
    Sergey
    Vladimir
    Xavier

    Would give me pause, but the right boy might pull it off

    Agenor
    Apollo
    Ares
    Calix
    Cobalt
    Emyr
    Gable
    Lemuel
    Lysander
    Lyros
    Minos
    Perseus
    Sachin
    Santiago
    Silviu
    Vasiliy

    Passable as funky middle names only;

    Dionysus
    Jupiter
    Mars
    Mordecai
    Xerxes

    Just say no
    Cain
    Epaphus
    Eros – Would you want to be named after the messenger of love during your teenage years?
    Galahad
    Gawain
    Hades
    Heracles
    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…
    Scorpio
    Priapus – Keep reading this as Papyrus
    Raiden – I just really don’t like this name
    Sarpedon

    The rest I’m ambivalent on.
