    Which do you prefer?

    I'm trying to cut down my list a little, so I've been grouping names with similar sounds.

    What do you think of these names? (be honest) Which are your favourites?

    Which do you think are usable/unusable/middles only?

    Brennan, Calen, Nolan
    Caspian, Darian, Finnian/Phinean, Sebastian
    Finnegan, Gilligan, Hartigan
    Devin, Peregrin, Severin, Thorin, Torin
    Auberon, Ecthelion, Endymion, Gideon, Solomon

    Thanks in advance!

    Brennan, Calen, Nolan - Calen is my favorite. Brennan is outdated and my least favorite.

    Caspian, Darian, Finnian/Phinean, Sebastian - I like this list really well. Sebastian, Finnian and Caspian are all great.

    Finnegan, Gilligan, Hartigan - Finnegan is literary and amazing.

    Devin, Peregrin, Severin, Thorin, Torin - This isn't my style. Very mythic sounding.

    Auberon, Ecthelion, Endymion, Gideon, Solomon - Again, very mythic and heavy for an adult to wear.

    My favorites are Nolan, Finnian, Sebastian, Devin, and Torin. I would consider Caspian, Peregrin, and Thorin for middle names. I love Hawthorne as a middle name and would consider Thorne. I personally would take Gilligan, Hartigan, Ecthelion, and Endymion off the list.

    Usable First Names (my faves are bolded)

    Brennan
    Nolan
    Caspian
    Finnian
    Sebastian
    Devin
    Torin
    Gideon
    Solomon

    Usable as Middle Names

    Auberon - I love this name but he was King of the Fairies so it would be hard for a boy to pull it off as a first name.
    Endymion - this would be difficult for a plain boy to bear as a first name
    Finnegan - better as a spunky middle name
    Hartigan - too surnamey for my taste
    Peregrin - spelled this Tolkien way it's better in the middle spot. Peregrine is better as a first name.

    Dislike these names...

    Calen -lacks substance, I wouldn't use it
    Darian - see Calen
    Ecthelion - unusable
    Gilligan - too connected to the 1960's dim-witted TV character on "Gilligan's Island".
    Severin - dislike the meaning
    Thorin - only if you're a Tolkien Dwarf.
