    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:

    Hector
    Ernest
    Matthias
    Eugene (family name)
    Gregory
    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:

    Dashiel
    Cornelius
    Benedict
    Geoffrey
    Gerald
    Gregory
    Lionel
    Nathaniel
    Gareth
    Sterling
    Walter
    Reuben

    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.

    Hypothetical sisters:

    Helena Valentine
    Gloria Bernadette
    Theodora (no middle)

    Combine away!

    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    I love your naming style. With hypothetical sisters I would pair:
    Hector Lionel
    Gerard Nathaniel (I don't think your reasons to use Gerard are strange; actually, Nathaniel is a lead singer of MY favorite band and on my list too )
    Ernest Cornelius
    Gregory Eugene
    Ernest Dashiel

    Hector Lionel
    Ernest Nathaniel
    Matthias Gregory
    Eugene Gareth
    Gregory Walter
    Gerard Benedict

    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.

    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.

    Some combos:
    Hector Cornelius
    Hector Gregory
    Ernest Lionel
    Matthias Sterling
    Matthias Gregory
    Eugene Gregory
    Gregory Sterling
    Gerard Cornelius
    Gerard Lionel

    Gregory Dashiell - Dashiell is spelled with two l's
    Matthias Geoffrey - the older form of Geoffrey is spelled this way.
    Matthias Ruben - I prefer the Biblical spelling of Reuben
    Hector Nathaniel
    Eugene Nathaniel
    Gerard Cornelius
    All the best,
    Mischa.
