Ethan - Probably in my all-time favorite, Ethan is at the top.
William - I think it's suitable for all ages, universal and a little bit royal.
Peter - Classic and strong, but the vowels soften the sound.
Nathan - Another classic, biblical name, but it's also fancy.
Oliver - Love the O.
Honorable mentions in favorites: Eli, Dexter, Griffin, Henry.
Graeme - Sounds fancy, but I have no clue how to pronounce it correctly as a foreigner. Graham is definitely easier.
Jago - I just can't see it on a child.
Hamish - Reminds me too much of the Amish community, I'm sorry.
Bertram - I prefer Bram over Bertram.
I don't have a fifth name, honestly. I can tolerate the others quite well.Irene; Name lover in her twenties; single; Languages student by day, writer by night.
Current favorites, not in order:
Emily - Evelyn - Hadley - Alice - Emma - Olivia - Zoey - Greta - Eden - Jezebel - Zelda - Anna - Charlotte
Ethan - Adam - William - Peter - Harvey - Galen - Kenneth - Kieran - Theo - Zander - Daniel - Ezra - Gabriel - Blake

I like these because they’re not completely outlandish, but they’re still unique and I think they can fit at any age.
5 least favorite:
These five just remind me of five old, grumpy men. Bertram reminds me of a butler, Alistair of an old rich British man, Hamish of a cranky neighbor, and Peter and Malcolm I just think are outdated.Sophia / Paige / Olivia / Lena / Charlotte / Kylie / Giuliana / Ever / Bailey / Madison
Toby / Spencer / Riley / Blake / Logan / Bay / Beckett / Mason / Tucker / Grayson
