    Challenge - help me love boys' names!

    I have received some brilliant suggestions from berries before (one of my favourite names - Alaric - I first heard after someone on here suggested it) so I thought I'd come back for more!
    My name obsession started with girls' names and I'm still struggling to have as much love for boys' names. When I recently reorganised my lists I realised that my girls' list is still more than twice as long as my boys' list.

    So, my challenge for you is to suggest some boys' names that I love I find it so helpful having other people suggest names as they often suggest names that I wouldn't even think of, with origins that I wouldn't normally have an interest in.
    But, to help, this is what I usually look for in names:

    - I often like Irish, Welsh and mythological names - particularly from Greek Mythology
    - I generally prefer traditional spellings - I am not bothered by pronunciation issues and usually dislike anglicised spellings
    - I dislike surnames as first names
    - I like for names to have a nice/positive/good meaning but it's not essential if I love the sound of the name
    - I prefer for names to have a variety of nickname options but, again, not essential

    Some of my favourite names:
    Aneirin
    Aonghus
    Ruairi
    Ambrose
    Caspian
    Idris
    Oisin
    Remy
    Evan
    Lachlan
    Nathaniel

    (as well as the ones in my signature)

    Thank you in advance

    Thanks for the suggestions so far

    jesba - I've actually been considering adding Abraham/Abram, I like the nicknames Abe and Bram and it has personal significance to me. Leofric is interesting, I think I'm going to try and find out more about that one. I also like Tobias.

    ashleyjuliette - Emrys, Evander, Leander, Rhys and Orion are already on my list so you definitely got my style I like Lucan, I've never heard of it before.

    nooshi - some of your suggestions are on my guilty pleasures list - Apollo, Poseidon, Remus I like Ephraim, Caspar, Cassian, Lysander (though I can't see it being wearable), Lorcan, Rubeus, Otto
