Opinions/Perceptions of our list
These are some names that my fiancé and I have thrown around for our future hypothetical children. I'd love it if y'all could give some opinions/perceptions/etc. about any or all of the names. Be as brutal or polite as you please! This is all hypothetical at this point so I'm looking for honesty over ego stroking!!
Some are names I love and some are names he "loves", and so as to get a more unbiased opinion they're all going to be lumped together.
Have at it! And thanks!!

Beau/Bowen: Love the name Beau, think it's cute for a little boy and would grow well into adulthood
Boone: Not too fond of...maybe as a nickname for something just not sure what
Dean: Love. Classic, old fashioned yet current at the same time
Destry: Different, sounds kind of made up. Origins/meaning behind it?
Gunnar: Not a fan
Hawthorne: Love. Also love the nn Thor
Holden: Cute but becoming trendy
Lincoln: Becoming trendy
Rhett: Ok, sounds like it's missing something
River: Not a fan
Shepherd: Not a fan
Wilder: Love! So cute yet masculine at the same time
So of your list, I LOVE Beau, Dean, Remington, Hawthorne, Silas, and Wilder. You have a good, solid list with a lot of choices!

I'll bunch this lot together:
^ Some I love, some are NMS, but I think they'd all make good names.
And why I'd personally not use the others:
Boone, Deacon, Holden, Lincoln, Shepherd, Wyatt - surnames, occupations and places. I'm generally not a fan of that sort of names.
Destry - reminds me of 'destitute'.
Duke - dog name
Gunnar - sounds violent
Hawthorne - it sounds very clunky as a FN. And I don't like hawthorn trees!
Remington - I think of the haircare company
Rhett - I have an irrational hatred of this name
River - a geographical feature
Wade - a verb? And what you'd do through the aforementioned feature? Dislike.
Wilder - why would you want a kid to be wilder?!
Hope that wasn't too harsh :/
