New boy names -- opinions?
So in the process of looking for some Scottish girl names I came across a bunch of new boy names, and I would love some opinions on them! Since there's been a lot of 1-5 rating recently feel free to do that (or however else you would like, I'm not picky). If you rate a name really low, I would appreciate it if you gave the reasoning behind it. Thanks!

LOVE Grant and Ross! I recently made a thread about Ross, but it didn't get very many comments--I'm curious to see if you get any more comments on it than I did! I am thinking about Ross (and Grant, actually) as middle names--I would be happy to meet a little boy with either name, but I feel like they're more MN contenders for me.
twenty-something namenerd & aspiring novelist
Isabelle Aurora Grace + Caleb Elias Joseph + Arianne Eleanor Daisy + Everett Joshua Charles + Olivia Wren Camille
Grant Frédéric Conrad + Violet Emilia Mary + Casper Nathaniel Eden + Grace Odilia Lily + Samuel Gaspard John
I've recently started a new story--feel free to come along with me for the journey! havengermany.blogspot.com
Chapter 1 is up! And an author's note! (Alas, don't get too excited.)

Alasdair - handsome. Not very wearable/approachable in the US though.
Angus - I don't like this name because it reminds me of beef.
Conall - love. Love the nn Con.
Duncan - never really liked this. Not quite sure why, something about dun+can. Plus it reminds me of Dunkin Donuts (US, again)
Ferguson - too surnamey for me but ok.
Glenn - not really a fan of this one. Feels dated to me.
Gordon - I like this.
Grant - nice enough.
Harris- too surnamey for me.
Lachlan - handsome.
Lewis - I don't like this spelling of this name.
Malcolm - nice.
Rogan - on the fence with this one, it's a bit close to Rogaine.
Ross - I like this
Seamus - nice
Struan - don't know this name but first reaction was negative.
Tavish - love.
Wallace - love.
