    My favorites from your lists are Evander and Lincoln, and Cole.
    Adam, Alexander, and William are nice classics that can never go wrong.
    Bennett, Emmett, Carson, Camden, Braxton, and Cade just sound snooty.
    Ryder, Maddox, Mason, Aidan, and Atticus are too trendy.
    William Anthony, Alexander Carson, and Adam Carson are nice. Like I said, you can't really go wrong with a good, solid classic. Using a classic FN gives you a lot more flexibility to get creative with the middle name.
    Why not Franklin as a first name? I really like Franklin Cole.
    Current favorites: Olive, Louise/Louisa, Magdalene/Madeline, Phillipa, Talitha, Mallory, Blythe, Eliza, Mercy, Talia; Calvin, Charles, Gideon, Abram, Jude, Reuben, George, Reid, Clark, Holden.

    Brutal honesty is my specialty!

    Aidan - I've seen so many spellings that this Irish name no longer appeals to me.
    Alexander "Xander" - This is strong, handsome and classic. My favourite on your list.
    Maddox - harsh celebrity child name
    Bennett - this is a Medieval form of Benedict so it has a lot of history to back it up
    Everett - I like this surname.
    Mason - OK but way too popular
    William (super popular, but I LOVE it) "Will" - I prefer the Dutch spelling Willem or just Will
    Cole - trendy and cold
    Carson - trendy but friendlier
    Adam - a Biblical gem
    Camden - Awful and trendy
    Braxton - awful and ugly
    Cade - ok but I'm sick of Cade, Jade, Wade names

    More "out there" names (less likely that I will use them):

    Evander - strong and relatively rare in the real world
    Ryder - ride her? Can't stand this name.
    Atticus - trendy but has literary pedigree. Atticus Lincoln would be cool.
    Lincoln - ok

    Some combos I like:

    William Anthony - bland
    Alexander Carson - I would prefer Alexander Bennett as a combo but this is my favourite.
    Bennett Franklin - I like both names but together they remind me of Benjamin Franklin.
    Adam Carson - similar sounds
    Everett Alexander/Cole - I prefer the name Alexander but Everett Cole flows better.
    Aidan Cole - nothing exciting
    Cade Michael - see Aidan Cole
    Maddox Lincoln - two overly trendy names
    Camden Bennett - back-to-back sounds of "Den-Ben" isn't appealing
