    Re: Avant-garde names please

    Here are a few names that I really like, wouldn't be too horrible to live with, and have kind of an artistic image:
    Caius
    Cairo- I'm not really a fan of place-names, but if it had an etymological history I would consider it more because I like the sound.
    Bodhi
    Amedeo- like Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani
    Macaire
    Marius

    Re: Avant-garde names please

    I like Caius, Amedeo (Modigliani is one of my favorite artists as well) & Macaire from your list. Cairo sounds too much like a girls name and Marius is not to my liking. I have always loved more unusual names and here are some suggestions for your consideration:
    Lysander
    Augustine/Augustus
    Cornelius
    Horatio
    Aloysius/Ignatius
    Auden
    Tarquin
    Plantagenet
    Macarius
    Peregrine
    Sacheverell
    Shem
    Sholto
    Somerled
    Torquil
    Talfryn
    Vaughan
    Wilberforce
    Virgil
    Warwick
    Trevelyan
    Yorick
    Zebedee
    Ossian
    Nahum
    Ninian
    Mungo
    Leander
    Lucius
    Lowry
    Conrad
    Ludovic
    Kynaston
    Kenelm
    Jasper
    Ivo/Ivor/Ivar
    Darius
    Cyrus
    Constantine
    Inigo

    Hope everything goes well for you! Good luck!
    All the best,
    Mischa.
