I like a lot of your names; Edmund, Laszlo, and Finn are on my list, as well as Ignacio (variant of Ignatius). My taste is pretty out there as well! Edmund Holmes is actually kind of similar to my if-I'm-brave-enough-GP fave boy combo, but I'm not a huge fan of Holmes as a middle though (maybe if it's a maiden name/family surname).
I am loving:
Azriel Valentine (sounds like a really cool book character!)

It is definitely a matter of opinion, and everyone's opinion will vary, none of which is based on fact.
looking at your list of combos, I have seen more "out there" taste than that. I have some off-beat and quirky names on my lists.
You have plenty of usable names. You may be somewhere in the middle of the road. I have seen way more conservative tastes on nb, and then I have seen some really unusual and off beat choices. You have the best of both worlds, and that keeps it more interesting.
from your list, I like: Zachariah Wolf, Hadrian Calloway, Azriel Valentine, Bartholomew Finn, and Caleb Hart. No question I like those names and I find them all to be usable except possibly bartholomew. I love Zachariah Wolf. Love it. Second fave I love is Azriel.

Here's the test. Actually call out the names, out loud. Make up a fictitious brother and use them. Address your favorite inanimate object by the names. If you don't feel ridiculous then the name is fine.
Personally I think Isambard, Azriel and Enoch are probably unusable. Hadrian & Lazslo are truly unusual but will still work. The others are much more common.Blade, MD
