Boys Names Blah - could you fall in love with any of these?
So I have a lot of girl names I love but am struggling to get excited about any of our boy name picks so far. We're not due for AGES so we have plenty of time but I wouldn't mind hearing people's initial thoughts on these options.
We prefer quite traditional international names first then want to have an edgy quirky name thrown in the middle spot that isn't chavvy. The only mms that fit this criteria I've found and liked are Zane and Axel and maybe Camden. All the others are a bit blah/average/unexciting. But the big problem is the first names - I am just not in love with them and family names are no inspiration either (John, William, Edward, Peter, Noel) although my brother is Guy - is that a good mn?
Xavier Leo (Xav)
William Zane (Will)
Vincent Noel (Vin)
George Alistair (Geo)
Sebastian Zach (Bas)
Cameron Axel (Cam)
Edward Zane (Ned)
Tristan Zane (Tris)
Any suggestions fellow berries? FYI our last name is Hendricks-Kumar and I am Scottish/British and my husband is half Chinese, half Indian, born in Toronto and raised in Atlanta. And we also have a Dutch connection as we met in Amsterdam and lived there for six years. So names that work across the world are essential... HELP!Mama to the awesome Milo Edward.

Xavier Leo (Xav) - I like it. What about Xavier Leopold?
William Zane (Will) - I LOVE Zane! William is ok. I like the nn Will better than Bill or Billy.
Vincent Noel (Vin) - I like it.
George Alistair (Geo) - Not a fan.
Leo Camden - I like a longer name for Leo like Leopold. Camden is totally a guilty pleasure name for me. My dad grew up there so it would be an honor to him. BUT it's a terrible city now. So if that association doesn't bother you then it's fine.
Sebastian Zach (Bas) - Prefer a longer version of Zach. I think Zachary would work. I like Sebastian but I don't like the nn Bas. Prefer Ian if you want a nn.
Cameron Axel (Cam) - It's ok. I don't think it flows well.
Edward Zane (Ned) - Don't like Edward at all. Really don't like the nn Ned (and honestly I don't get where it comes from?).
Lucas Evan - Love it!
Tristan Zane (Tris) - Love! Probably my favorite, though I don't like the nn. I don't think Tristan needs a nn.

Xavier Leo (Xav) -- I really like this one!
William Zane (Will) -- William doesn't go with Zane very well IMO. William Noel or William Alistair is good though.
Vincent Noel (Vin) -- It's nice, but nms
George Alistair (Geo) -- They have nice flow but are completely different. George Camden, George Noel, George Leo, or George Evan are good
Leo Camden -- This is good. Love Leo
Sebastian Zach (Bas) -- Don't like these together. Sebastian Alistair, Sebastian Leo are good
Cameron Axel (Cam) -- I don't like this at all
Edward Zane (Ned) -- love it
Lucas Evan -- It's nice but not as good as some of the others
Tristan Zane (Tris) -- LOVEMother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^

I do like a lot of your suggestions...
Xavier Leo is my favourite, and the suggestion of Xavier Leopold is awesome but I do think Xavier Leo Hendricks-Kumar sounds great.
William, Vincent , George and Edward are just too bland for me, and make better middle names.
I think Camden is rather chavvy. Something like Leo William or Leo Sebastian would be cool - Leo Sebastian Hendricks-Kumar - love this!
Sebastian, Lucas and Tristan are all gorgeous names but I don't really like them with your last name(s).
Favourites are definitely Xavier Leo Hendricks-Kumar and Leo Sebastian Hendricks-Kumar!
