Alrighty then, it's COMBO TIME!
So, since it seems that suggestions have been exhausted on boys names for me, It's time to start putting them together.
First name choices:
Eugene (family name)
Gerard (Wary of this one; lead singer of my favorite band (MCR), and if I used this name it WOULD be for that reason. Too fangirly? Too negative? Opinions?!)
Middle name choices:
And then of course the first names are also game for middle name slots.
If you have more names to suggest, please do so, in the form of combos or lists.
Theodora (no middle)

These were the "automatic" matches for me. Gerard is my favorite name on your list. It's incredibly dashing and very underused. Gerard was actually quite popular in medieval times, so it's got a far longer and richer history than people might think. I don't think it's too "fangirly" to name your son after your favorite singer. I'm sure there are a lot of parents out there who have done the same. The SSA charts are dotted with names like Lennon, Hendrix, Presley, and Jagger. You aren't alone. Several of the names on my list are after or at least inspired by fictional characters. Even if your love for Gerard Way fades over time, your son will still have a fantastic name.♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Dean ◊ Micah ◊ Gideon ◊ Tobias ◊ Jasper

Oooh, I love a lot of your choices! I don't think Gerard is unusable because of the band connection; if anything, that makes it cooler. When I hear the name, I immediately think of English footballer Steven Gerrard, rather than MCR.
