Balthazar: nms. I don't like B names in general and the first syllable just feels weird to me. "Balth." Feels medieval, reminds me of both "bald" and "scathe."
Aleksander: love this name with this spelling. So handsome.
Wolfgang: Feels exaggeratedly German outside of Germany if that makes sense. Can't get past the literal meanings of each syllable. Wolfie is a cute nn- for a pet.
Augustus: The meaning of "august" plus the flow of the name make it feel very grounded. Personally prefer Augusten or Augustine to the -us repetition of Augustus.
Amadeus: handsome. I'm not loving the -us endings though. Too Latin and archaic, so they feel a bit stuffy. Amais is much more my style. Also, are you a big Mozart lover? I can't help but also think of the song "Rock Me Amadeus."
Sebastian- I have always liked this name but worried that it was limited to a meek type of boy. Then I met a Sebastian who is a grungy teenaged skater who goes by "Seabass"- funny, but totally fitting and endearing.
Edward: perfectly fine but pales next to your other choices.
Devereaux: I don't like the ending -eaux when said aloud, and it feels a tad contrived. Also can't help but think of the character Blanche Devereaux from "Golden Girls."
Lucian: Love. Lucien is even better.Amity|Colette|Flora|Lark|Linnea|Louisa|Nina|Nora

Balthazar - I love this name a lot. I actually think a little kid named Balthazar is perfectly cute. NN Zar
Aleksander - I like it. Alexander is one of my favs & I like this spelling too
Wolfgang - I don't love this. Wolf + gang causes anxiety in my brain. And Wolfgang Amadeus was plagued by financial, alcoholic, mental illness, and health problems, so that comes to mind. Sorry!
Augustus - nms
Amadeus - see Wolfgang
Sebastian - love this name. It's consistent near the top of my boy list. NN Bastian or Bas
Edward - this is a nice name
Deveraux - I used to love this name. I still like it. I discovered it when I was 10 in one of the Harlequin Romance novels my mom hid in her closet.
Lucian - Love this name. For me it is a rather gothic name but I like that.* My name is Adelaide Skye. I love to play with names.*Saffron Jane Calliope - Noa Calliope Rose - Charlotte Mazarine Eden - Noa Frances Mazarine - Saffron Mazarine Rose - Mazarine Frances Noa - Rhiannon Leigh Noelle - Rowan Sophia Mazarine - Oswell Constantine - Irving Balthasar - Balthazar Lucas - Israfel Ronin - Walter Zephram - Paul Constantine - Malcolm Ephraim

Balthazar- I LOVE this. No reason, just do.
Aleksander- I like Alexander because I'm more used to it, but this spelling is pretty cool.
Wolfgang- Really, really like this-even though I'm not a fan of Mozart.
Augustus- Powerful. The TFIOS character kinda ruined it for me, but I still really like it.
Amadeus- I prefer the feminine version of Amadea, but I still like it's sound.
Sebastian- One of my favorites. A bit sad that its been stereotyped as an old butler.
Edward- Never really liked this, and the Twilight character doesn't help.
Deveraux- Very handsome. I can't decide between Devereux and Deveraux....but both are rather attractive.
Lucian- I like this, but I'm a huge Pokémon fan and it reminds me of a character. But still a favorite.
Out of all, I would say Wolfgang or Balthazar would be my favorite, with Sebastian following close behind. Good list!
