    Dashing Little Gentlemen - Opinions?

    My list for boys has undergone a HUGE makeover, and has now basically had all surnames-turned-first-names removed off of it. I found that they're all either way too common, or, too many people seem to loathe them. I'd love to hear thoughts on my new list! Suggestions for names of a similar style would be great too!


    Edward
    Andrew
    Adam
    Henry
    Lewis/Louis (slightly prefering the Lewis pn)
    Joel
    Michael
    Samuel
    Simon
    Joshua
    Mark
    Benjamin
    Frederick nn Freddie
    Thomas
    Nathan

    Ones I'm iffy on:

    George
    Bennett
    Alexander
    William (popularity might be an issue with this one, number one name where I live)
    Nicholas
    Walter (love this, but scared it's 'too old' for a little boy, my thoughts on boys names are totally different from my girls names)

    I love the name Walter!! One of my best friends whom I've known my life is named Walter, and I think it's served him well. It doesn't read "old man" to me like, for example, Archie and Harold do. Instead, Walter is a name for an adorable baby, a playful and precocious little boy, a thoughtful young man, and a distinguished gentleman

    I also really like Simon, Adam, and Joel from your list. Bennett is really cute, and while it sounds like strictly a little boy's name to me, I can see how it could grow up with a person.

    Suggestions:
    Sebastian
    Nathaniel
    Everett
    Emmett
