    Boy names to match my girls'?

    Currently on my girl's list I have,

    Helena Valentine
    Gloria Bernadette
    Theodora (no middle)

    I'm looking for boy names to match my style; offbeat vintage? Uncommon classic? Call it what you want, I suppose. The only boy's name I really like, and have liked perpetually, is Dashiel, and it feels a tad too modern for my girl's names. I'm also toying with Hector right now.

    While off-balance sibsets don't bother me, I would like to see if there are boy names to match my girls'. My goal is to have three of each.

    All suggestions are appreciated.

    First of all, your girls names are beautiful. I really like Dashiell, and would support this if you're a Hammett fan. Cate Blanchett has a Dashiell, and her other sons are Ignatius and Roman. They're quite different. Hector is a big love of mine, so I'm very supportive of this one. Have you seen the movie Troy? Eric Bana is so gorgeous in that one, and really embodies everything Hector is (at least in my eyes).

    Names I think would fit in nicely with Helena, Gloria and Theodora:
    Albert
    Alfred
    Alistair
    Anthony/Anton
    Basil
    Benedict
    Bernard
    Bertram
    Cecil
    Charles
    Clarence
    Conrad
    Cornelius
    Cosmo
    Donald
    Edgar
    Edmund
    Edwin
    Ernest
    Eugene
    Eustace
    Everett
    Fabian
    Ferdinand
    Florian
    Francis
    Frederick
    Geoffrey
    Gerald
    Gilbert
    Gregory
    Hugh
    Ivan
    Jasper
    Jonas
    Julian
    Lawrence
    Leopold
    Maxim
    Neville
    Percival
    Quentin
    Ranulph
    Reginald
    Roland
    Roman
    Rufus
    Rupert
    Sidney
    Victor
    Vincent
    Wilfred
    Xavier
