Would you please rank my list of boy names from favorite to least favorite?
I would really appreciate opinions on the names on my list. Although we don't know if we are having a boy or a girl yet, I am almost certain it is a boy. I am wanting names that sound decent (if not perfect) with my step-children Josiah, Stella, and Emma. Middle name will be either Andrew (after my father), Charles (after my father-in-law), or Henry (my mother-in-law's maiden name and my husband's middle name).
Orlando Andrew (my hang up on Orlando is that I am afraid the name is ONLY associated with Mr. Bloom)
Other suggestions are welcome. I just want a good idea of what I want before I start trying to talk names with DH.Step-Mother to three lovely children - Josiah Lewis (14), Stella Evangeline (8), and Emma Catherine (4)

I think a lot of people will think of Orlando Bloom, but so what? He's a beautiful man, seems very kind and genuine. Then there's Orlando, Charlemagne's military leader and "leading man" in the Italian renaissance poems Orlando Furioso and Orlando Innamorato, Virginia Woolf's beautiful novel and Orlando in Shakespeare's fabulous As You Like It

6)Orlando Charles I also like Orlando Henry. When I hear Orlando, I think of Disneyworld, not bloom.
All of these combos I like. I like the firsts and middles. It's simply a matter of preference.
Now the next three not so much:
1. Orlando Andrew I keeping slipping when I say it. I somehow keep rhyming Orlando and Andrew. The -and part sticks out to me. I like both of these names, but not together.
2. Amos Charles I have never known an Amos. I think Famous Amos (cookies?) and Amos and Andy. Not so much my choice. But if you like it it's usable.
3. Hollis Andrew I used to like this one more. The only Hollis I knew was a girl, but it's not popular for girls. It could work. Just not my favorite. I like so many of your favorites more.

August Charles (Josiah, Stella, Emma, August is really cute I think)
Orlando Charles (Don't think there's anything wrong with being associated with them, but also, Ottilie brings up other Orlando's that I agree with)
Hollis Andrew (Reminds me too much of Hollister)
Orlando Andrew (not a fan of Orland with this middle name at all.)Catelin GenevaJust highschooler by day author by night obsessed with names and future babies when she's much older.
