    Awesome Adventurers

    So onward to replacing one of my boy names. I don't like Asher as a first name anymore. It's just sort of flat next to all my girl names and Damien and Voltaire. I have Alexander also but it has such an awesome historical connection that I think it's fine. Asher just makes me go meh. I like it find in the middle though.

    So, I need boy names that sound adventurous and that go with the others. We like mythological (Norse and Greek but we can also branch into Egyptian), historical, and just general cool and underused names.

    The other combos on the boys list are:

    Damien Quillon Samwise
    Alexander Dante Griffin
    Voltiare Loki Constantine -- this was Raphael Loki Constantine but Raphael is moved to a middle now

    So have at it! I hope I get as good a response as with the girls forum.

    Me and Cody like:

    Amadeus -- but it would be a middle. We think we like Wolfgang better ^_^
    Barnabus
    Evander -- as a middle name. It's already on our middle name list
    Leonidas -- I'm maybe in this one
    Orion -- middle name
    Theron -- on the fence here
