    Favorites:
    1. Malcolm (sounds good and suits both a child and an adult)
    2. Bram (though I like Abram better than Bertram)
    3. Edmund (classic and less common than Edward)
    4. Matthias (prefer the German pronunciation mah-tee-us to English math-ee-us)
    5. Adrian

    Least favorites:
    1. Henry (extremely sick of this one, unfortunately)
    2. Jago
    3. Gerard (sounds clunky and dull to me)
    4. Damian (sick of this one too, I know far too many people called Damian/Damien)
    5. Damon (see above)

    Yea, I don't have 5 least favorites. The others either don't make me feel anything or I like.

    Favourites:

    Dexter - A bit geeky but also a bit edgy. I likes.
    Eli - Love the sound of it, it would suit anyone.
    Henry - Love Henry, quite popular now though.
    Leopold - So handsome!
    Tobias - Vintage feel while still being current, good nickname.

    Least favourites:

    Adrian - Nothing inherently wrong with this name but I don't like the sound of it.
    Gerard - I think this is a bit stuffy and pretentious.
    Malcolm - It's not really cute on a boy and not really handsome on a man.
    Rupert - Not masculine enough.
    Russell - Just really dislike! Reminds me of True Blood. :P
