    Alaric - meh. Not really my style
    Amadeus - not a fan. I actually knew one a few years above me in school. He wasn't a fan either, he went by Adam
    Basil - I really like Basil, it's very handsome
    Beau - never been a fan, it just sounds very insubstantial to me
    Christian - I don't mind it, I just don't find it very interesting
    Damon - too close to 'demon' for my liking
    Dorian - very handsome and on my own list
    Edward - I do prefer Edmund, but Edward is still a great name with history and a lot of nn opportunities
    Gideon - I want to like it, but the 'giddy' bit gets me
    Leonardo "Leo" - this is great, I really love Leo
    Orlando - very dashing, I like it
    Orpheus - it's nice, but I prefer Orlando
    Percival "Percy" - I adore this, it's on my list
    Quentin - sounds like someone's great-uncle to me, but I think that's the fault of the Famous Five books.
    Reuben - I really like Reuben, especially with 'Roo' as a nn
    Romeo - I do like Romeo, but I wonder if perhaps it's a little too much
    Sebastian - I don't dislike Sebastian as such, I've just never really got the appeal
    Tristan - it has been my favourite boys' name for years, so it definitely has my vote
    William - a classic that will never date

    All-in-all I would keep Basil, Dorian, Edward, Leonardo, Orlando, Percival, Reuben, Romeo, Tristan and William.
