    Romantic Names...For Boys?

    Hello! I've been describing my naming taste for girls as Romantic and am starting to embrace similar names for boys.

    Right now I'm crushing on Luca and Adrian, names that I previously found too feminine but am now seeing as interesting and masculine. I'm also liking names like Lazarus and Raphael (though they'd probably be a bit much for me to ever use), which to me evoke a strong, old-world feeling.

    Can you suggest some similar names?

    I believe that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

    Most names with -ian endings, or -el endings. I second Bennet, and I'd add:
    Darcy
    Benoit (Or any French name, tbh e.g. Christophe is swoon worthy, Christopher? Not so much)
    Alexander
    Frederick
    Horatio
    Valencio
    Santiago

    I like Luca from your list, I find the Luc- bit makes it really masculine.
