@scarletrune: I have always heard the beginning sound of Gavin pronounced like the gav- in gavel and not like given.
I would love to use spellings of names like Gawain, but I'm afraid that here in the US his name would always be horribly butchered. People constantly mispronounce my name, and it's not unusual at all!
Dougal and Keane are on my list for consideration, and I think I'm going to have to add Galen, which I like a lot. When I first heard Declan it was a preppy teenage boy character on a TV show and I assumed that they just made up the name for the character, and even though I've learned about the name since then that's always what I picture.
Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to keep them coming if you think of any more.

Gavin. I'd probably say 'gayve-n' to rhyme with haven, if I saw it.

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.
