Since this time the purpose seems to limit, I will embrace negativity in hopes of helping you eliminate a few. (Favorites are Auberon, Casimir, Darius, and Endymion).
Think about losing...
Archimedes. I just see the owl from Disney's "The Sword in the Stone."
Attila: The "a" ending seems so feminine and I wil never not finish with "the hun."
Herne: I would actually love to hear what you like about this name. I had NEVER heard it until you were throwing it around last time and it just doesn't even sound like a name to me. It's just a sound. lol. And I agree with whoever said it made them think of Hernia. :/
Melchior: This one sounds sort of overly dramatic. I hear the kid from Toy Story narrating out loud, "Look out everyone! Here comes... MELCHIORRRR!"
I love a lot of these names so so much. But those are the ones I don't get.Names I enjoy:
Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie
Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

Darius -- Yes.
Lucius -- Yes.
Orpheus -- Oriface. No.
Perseus -- Meh.
Romulus -- Meh.
Auberon/Oberon -- Oberon, yes.
Endymion -- Meh.
Herne -- No.
Odin -- Yes.
Casimir -- Meh.
Melchior -- Meh.
Rainier -- ...undecided?
Archimedes -- No.
Attila -- No.
Faramond -- No.
Leopold -- Meh.
So here are my picks:
Odin and Aphrodite = win. It admittedly boxes you into god names if you feel sibsetty, but... ODIN.
Top ten, in my favorite order:

Sorry I've been off the forums for a bit...
I know I said meh about a lot of these - none of them are a thumbs-down, just that I don't have any particular feeling about the name one way or another.
Darius - meh
Lucius - meh
Orpheus - YES!!!
Perseus - awesome
Romulus - hmmm...I'll have to contemplate this one...for me it is still to close to the Romulans (Oh star trek why must you ruin everything?)
Auberon/Oberon - I like Oberon
Endymion - I want to like this one but for some reason I'm not super-fond
Herne - This I never would have thought of - LOVE it.
Odin - YES.
Casimir - meh
Melchior - very epic, but for some reason I'm not loving the way it rolls off the tongue
Rainier - Cool in theory, not sure how it would wear
Archimedes - YES!!!
Attila - Sorry, not loving it
Faramond - not sure, will have to contemplate
Leopold - Another great choice
Hope that helps!
