Unusual middle name for Michael
Stylistically my favorite boy names could be defined as classic/timeless. My favorite boy names combinations are James Alaric and Henry Elijah*. As you can see the first names are very very popular in the US so I typically like to put less popular names in the middle name spot. Michael is a new current love of mine. I'm quite picky with names so I'm having a hard time finding more unusual legitimate names that I like .
Some names I've thought of, but don't quite fit: Malcolm, Perseus, Truman, Gideon, Conrad, Alasdair, Desmond, Phineas, Leonidas, Jolyon
Maybe someone can convince me that the names above do fit. I do love them, but I'm not sure about them with Michael
* Elijah is quite popular, but in my 21 years I have not met one. Maybe it's regionally, but it's not popular where I live. I also don't think it has the same feel as James, Henry and MIchael. It fits stylistically more with Alaric

Oh no! I forgot to mention I like names that are at least out of the top 500. If possible names that haven't made the top 1000 are even better.
I love Antonia, but just can't get on board with Anthony for some odd reason. It's also ranked 15 last year so too popular for me. I love all the August names, but I don't like them with Michael. I like Cyrus, but Michael Cyrus is too close to Miley Cyrus.
I love Salvatore, but as a surname only. It has a really cool sound to it. I like Victor, but my sister in law is Victoria.
Leopold was on my list. I forgot about it. I'm not sure if Michael Leopold has the same feeling as James Alaric and Henry Elijah.
Adding Leopold and August on the long list for now.

Peregrine on my long list of obscure names until I realized I like it more for how it looked and no the pronunciation.
How is Caradoc pronounced?
Zebulon will always make me think of Zenon. I loved those movies.
I really like Nicodemus, but I'm not sure how usable it is. If I didn't already have two Vampire Diaries names on my list I would use Niklaus. I love it so much more than Nicholas.
I'm not fond of X names and my younger brother is Stephon so I would use a name with the same sound.
No you didn't! Even if I wouldn't use them I love finding out about unusual names.
