    I like Cedar and Fox, but only for a middle name.

    Keats is kind off cool.

    Love Wilder, in my top 10. Wilder honors family and has special meaning for us.
    Piers Lachlan o Tadhg Emerson o Gray Everett o Bennett Wilder
    Crispin ? o Roan August o Espen Rigby o Crew Rafferty
    Lilia Rose o Waverly Pearl o Isabel Hettie o Coralie Winter
    Sofie Wren o ? ? o ? ? o Story Anneliese

    Same as with the girlies. Likes & dislikes.

    Likes:

    Auberon - I prefer Oberon too. Auberon is too aubergine. But I do like Oberon. I do.
    Aurelius - Love.
    Balthazar - Growing on me, especially since its use in @mega_muffin's son's name!
    Benno - as a cute nn for Benjamin, yes.
    Inigo - My favourite on your list. If I was into unusual names, this would top my list.
    Laird - as a MN only.
    Laurent, Massimo, Odysseus, Piero, Viggo - I'm loving these foreign dudes! There's a lot of sass and sexiness in there. Not sure if that's what you want from a baby name, but hey.
    Sasha - I'd love to see more male Sashas!
    Cedar - could work on the right kind of boy.

    Dislikes:

    Fox - and now that stupid fox song is in my head Tis an animal and should remain as such.
    Gable - I just dislike. And I don't know why.
    Keats - great namesake and all that but I think it'd fare better in the middle.
    Mingus - waaay too close to minge for my liking! :s
    Morrissey - a one-person surname. I'd assume you were a massive fan.
    Sky - even on girls I've never liked it. I've never met a nice Sky/Skye. And then there's the broadcasting company.
    Thelonious - would make an intriguing middle but it's a little much.
    Wilder - than? I've always disliked this name. I think it's a bit silly really.
    Yale - perhaps, in the middle. But I still think of locks and keys.
