Same as with the girlies. Likes & dislikes.
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.
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.
