    Jai - short, strong, I like it
    Caspian - reminds me of Caspar the Friendly Ghost?
    Bodhi - different, quite boho / alternative
    Leon - sounds a tad old-man'ish?
    Hugo - love love love Hugo!
    Louis - classic, timeless
    Jasper - whilst I can't escape the Twilight association, I do think its a fresh, unique name
    Flynn - gorgeous as a young boy, charming and respectable as an adult!

    Overall, I like a lot of your choices

    Jai - Wouldn't be bad as a nickname but to me, it feels incomplete.
    Caspian - I know it's a recent invention but I really like it.
    Bodhi - I don't care for it.
    Leon - It feels so dated.
    Hugo - This isn't bad but whenever I say it in my head, I think of "huge-o".
    Louis - I prefer Lewis. In my area, Louis would be pronounced the same way as Lewis and to me, Lewis is more aesthetically appealing.
    Jasper - My second favorite on your list.
    Flynn - This one is my favorite.

    Caspian - I like this ok but it reminds me of the Sea, and I prefer Caspar, Cassius and Caius.
