Love that you've got Peri in your sig... it's one of those Persian names that I wish more English speakers knew about...
Sebastian Henri James- I prefer Sebastian James, but either way is ok. Not my fav on your list, but still nice...
Hugo James Alistair- Hugo always seems a bit too much to me... and I just hear "Hugh, go!" Much prefer Hugh... unpretentious and simple.
Cecil Henri - Love. My fav so far... Cecil is so wonderfully refined and polished. <3
Julius Levi "Jules"- Love. Julius is so stong and wonderful... working from the bottom up, so now I see Julius and Cecil are on your list... lol
Asa James- Despite being close to as*, I still like this.
Percy George- Nerdy, but cool.
Ivo Grant- Love Grant, but not Evo.
Onyx Edgar- Onyx feels so modern, and Edgar so old. They just don't fit. I would personally use Onyx as a mn to spice up an otherwise dull name...
Milo Jack- Don't like Jack, and Milo is a pet name for me... "Milo and Otis"...
Sterling Thomas- Love, love, love! Sterling is a name which should be used more, and this is a great combo. Very vintage and unique...
Dandy Oliver- I would even be tempted to mock a child named Dandy, and I'm a grown up...
Mick Timothy Joseph - I'm just not a fan of nns as fns... Mick seems so nicknamish to me. Plus, it rhymes with too many things... flick, pick, sick, tick, *ick...
Reid Abner- I normally hate Abner, but this combo makes it actually seem usable. What about Reid Joseph?
Cesar Nolan- Cesar makes me think of the dog whisperer. Would you consider Cedric, Cecil, or Julius?
Declan Charles- Love! This is really a handsome combo
Xander Grey- Both of these names are quite trendy. I much prefer Xander as a nn for Alexander.
Niko William- Not a fan of Niko... I know a pretty bad guy by that name. I think it would be better as a nn for Nikolai or Nicolas...
Phineas Alexander "Finn"- A tad long, but has a great vibe.
Skye - Prefer Skye as a mn on a boy... just seems so girly.Emiliana Pari (or Valentina Hasti?) Debuts July 2014Soren Pasha, Caspian Bardia
Camellia Seraphine, Jessamine Ara

You have a lot of spectacular names, here! I'll comment on my impression of each individual name, then give you my favorites.
Sebastian Henri James: Strong, very handsome, great flow. Sebastian is a great choice with lots of nn options.
Hugo James Alistair: James grounds what could otherwise be an airy name. Solid, handsome combo with great flow.
Cecil Henri: Not sure if I like Cecil, but the combo with Henri has a very nice sound.
Julius Levi "Jules": I don't love the repetitive "Lee" sound, but I love these two names. Perhaps a name between them would help the flow. Julius Grey Levi?
Asa James: Don't get me wrong, I love both these names, but I hear "I saw James" or "Ace of James." Again, the repeated vowel sound is throwing the flow off. Asa Joseph or Asa Henri?
Percy George: I would prefer George in the first place. Percy reads so snooty to me (thanks a lot, Percy Weasley) whereas George is grounded.
Ivo Grant: Yeah, no. Not feeling this one. Ivo needs something more to even it out, maybe a 3-syllable name like William or Theodore.
Onyx Edgar: What an interesting mix of styles! Both names are cool, but together, they're a bit hard to say. I think you need a consonant to start the second name. Onyx Milo Edgar?
Milo Jack: I love this. Simple, strong, and friendly-sounding.
Sterling Thomas: Ooo, this one took me by surprise. I like this a lot.
Dandy Oliver: I cannot imagine what I would think if a grown man introduced himself as Dandy. Oliver Dandy is much better AND it keeps the whimsical sweetness.
Mick Timothy Joseph: It sounds like "McTimothy Joseph." I'm not a Timothy fan myself, but I deeply respect the usage of family names. I have a crush on Mick, but how to help him stand solo? Hmm. Mick Joseph Timothy is an improvement as it eliminates the repeated short i sound.
Reid Abner: Another pleasant surprise! I like it.
Cesar Nolan: Again, what do you say to a guy named Cesar? I think Nolan Cesar would save him some grief, and Noel is a great nn.
Declan Charles: Two great names.
Xander Grey: Another lovely surprise. Grey makes me like Xander.
Niko William: I like this!
Phineas Alexander "Finn": Sweet yet strong, and Finn is super cute.
Sebastian Henri James
And I really hope you consider Oliver Dandy. I'm falling for his sweetness.Currently crushing on:
Russell. Calloway. Brighton.
Evadne. Cecelia. Thomasina.

Sebastian Henri James - Henry James was an author, so I'd probably change it to Sebastian James Henry
Hugo James Alistair - I think Hugo Alistair James flows better, nice combo though.
Cecil Henri - being a family name saves it a bit, but it's hard to imagine on a kid. What about Henry Cecil?
Julius Levi "Jules" - I'm not too fond of Julius but I love Levi
Asa James - the repeated a sound isn't the greatest. What about Asa Henry
Percy George - not fond of Percy or of George, sorry
Ivo Grant - love Grant, Ivo is a bit on the weird side.
Onyx Edgar - love Edgar, again, Onyx is a bit strange for me
Milo Jack - nice, I like this one a lot as is.
Sterling Thomas - Thomas Sterling would be fabulous
Dandy Oliver - please don't, dandy is an old term for a gay guy
Mick Timothy Joseph - I'd prefer just Timothy Joseph
Reid Abner - both names are nice, but they aren't the greatest together. Reid Alexander or
Cesar Nolan - sorry, but not fond of either name
Declan Charles - love Charles, Declan just make me think decline
Xander Grey - okay, but reminds me of Christian Gray
Niko William - love William. Niko feels very nicknamey to me, but it's okay
Phineas Alexander "Finn" - love Phineas!
Skye - not fondLivy/Lucy : Geneva/Gwen : Coralie/Alice : Noelle/Eve
Eli/Bennett : Jude/Zane: Luke/Leo : Levi/Phineas
