    You really have an eye for sibsets! I love, love, love Jude and Leo together and I really don't think I would have thought of it. I also really love Graham, Rhys, and Everett.

    LOVE:
    Nolan
    Jack
    Theo (prefer longer form - Theodore, Theodoric, Theophilus, Theon etc)
    Leo (prefer longer form - Leonard, Leonardo, Leonidus, Leopald etc)
    Everett
    Charlie (much prefer Charles nn Charlie)

    Absolutely fine, but not my style:
    Liam
    Lachlan
    Auden
    Sawyer
    Cooper
    Arlo
    Quinn
    Graham
    Milo (prefer Miles nn Milo)
    Rhys
    Jude

    DISLIKE:
    Tate / Roan / Piers / Reid (just don't sound good to me)
    Holden / Sutton / Alden (bit dull, trendy/surname)
    Foster (always makes me think of foster kids)
    Quill (an ink pen?)
    Knox/Lennox/Huxley (harsh sounding / too trendy)
    Knight (in the same league as Princess for me)

    Favourite Combos:
    Theodore Graham (nn Theo), Auden Charles, Jack Everett, Miles Nolan (nn Milo), Arlo Cooper, Rhys Lachlan, Liam Sawyer
    Alfred | Arthur | Bartholomew | Ephraim | Frederick | Isadore | Ozias | Rupert | Sherlock | Victor

    Antonia | August | Damaris | Eliza | Esmeralda | Marceline | Matilda | Ramona | Tahlia | Trudy

    I think @mischa said it best. And I agree with her on Quill.. I think it's a huge stretch from your other choices. I'll copy and paste your list down below, delete the ones I have neutral feelings about, and discuss the ones I feel strongly about:


    Nolan-- I do not get the appeal of this name. This sounds very dated to me.
    Jack-- One of those names you can't go wrong with.
    Holden-- Agghhh, so handsome I can't stand it!
    Liam-- Way too popular now. If you love it, use it as a middle. It makes a great middle because it goes with so much.
    Theo-- This is so cool.
    Lachlan-- See Theo.
    Foster-- I can't decide on this one. It has a harsh sound to me (fah-ster) but it's kinda old-man chic. Ya know?
    Arlo-- See Theo.
    Graham-- Very handsome, and wearable. This would be a safe, wonderful choice.
    Leo-- See Theo.
    Jude-- One of my all time FAVORITES.
    Lennox-- See Theo, lol.
    Huxley-- Another guilty pleasure! Hux is the coolest, most handsome nickname, ever.
    Knight-- Yikes, nooooo, sorry. Maybe a quirky middle, but you have much better first name choices.
    Rhys-- I'd rather see this in the middle.
    Everett-- See Graham.

    I love your taste in names! I feel like it's really similar to mine.
