Hello! I was wondering if I could get some feedback on these names, and some new suggestions! Here is the list of favorites:
I love them all for different reasons! Liev, Sorin and Xavier are all old-fashioned and strong sounding but they also seem to have a soft side to them. Aurelius is just cool and interesting! Teifryn is practically unheard of which is cool, but it has almsot a classic sound to it. Some might think Zealand is a bit of a stretch, but I love it! I like place names, but most of them are so overused! I've never heard of a Zealand, and it sounds awesome! His nickname could be Zea, which I love too!
Thanks in advance for the feedback!

I'm on the fence about Zealand, I do not hate it, but I'm not sure if I like it either. To be fair though, I've never been a fan of place names so I'm a bit biased. As far as place names go however, I will say that I think you took an interesting turn to it. I've never seen this named used either! So good job on that point.
I hate Teifryn, and Kade. I just don't like the sound. I am okay with Liev/Lief as a name. I like Xavier but it's a bit popular these days, which isn't necessarily a deterrent.
My absolute favorites are Sorin (although I spell it Soren) and Aurelius! I just adore those names. The only downside to Soren for me is that it means "Strict and stern" but even that isn't a big deal. There isn't a thing I don't like about Aurelius.Blessed to be a mother of 5.
My dashing fellows: Aidan Mackenzie (12 yrs) and Remy Forrester (resting in heaven)
My dahling daughters: Ava Dulcea (5 yrs), Mia Isobel (2yrs) and Gemma Hermione (just joining us!).

I'm a lover of out there boy names, so your list is right up my alley! <3
Kade - This one is actually a bit too trendy for me!
Aurelius - You'll have pronunciation issues, just like every other awesome boy's name. But it has a very strong look to it.
Xavier - Again, soooo trendy where I live. Xavier, Xander, Xayden, Zavier, Zander, and Zayden. I see these names constantly.
Liev - Hmm, I'm not sure on this one.
Sorin - I love Soren. In a similar vein, I like Torrin and Tallon as well. Saroyan and Sinclair might also have a similar feel for you.
Teifryn - Not a fan of this, sorry.
Zealand - LOVE! My favorite on your list after Sorin/Soren. Newlyn might be something similar to Zealand in style/

Kade - I like the sound, but it seems too... I dunno...
Aurelius - I like the meaning of it, but I'm not a fan of the look or sound.
Xavier - I like it.
Liev - It's alright, nms.
Sorin - I like the nature-y names! Just watch out of the sore begining. My name is Eros, and the fact that it's sore backwards bugs me, though not enough that I would have changed it.
Teifryn - I'm not sure how to pronounce, which is new for me... Is it ty-frin? I think it's cool, not amazing, but cool.
Zealand - I LOVE this! It has great context and nice sound and look. Plus Zea is adorable!
How do you like:
Wow. Every one of those started with S hahaI'll be standing on the cliff with the sunset in my eyes~

Kade: I really like this one. It was on my list for my first son, but i nixed it because of nn Katy. In my other baby name book, the meaning is wetlands, which I really liked.
Aurelius: Not bad, but I am really not a big fan of the Roman names. I think it could be cute if you find the right nn.
Xavier: I have never liked Xavier. Can't say why for sure, but same goes for Xander/zander.
Liev: I kinda like this one. Do you pronounce it Leev?
Sorin: I really like this name too, but I would also spell it Soren. It looks more open and soft that way.
Teifryn: I kinda like it in a nerdy, fantasy lover kind of way ;-) Not sure how it is pronounced though and he would probably always have issues with spelling and pronunciation. There is Taliesen that is similar, but a bit more well known.
Zealand: I love this one! Kinda like Leland, only cooler ;-) I am a bit biased though because I met and started dating my husband during a study abroad program in Australia and New Zealand. Plus I love nature names and Zealand reminds me of the beautiful places I saw while I was there. It is definitely different for a boy, but it is familiar enough that people would generally know how to spell and pronounce it.

Kade -- I dislike this one because it seems sort of trendy, but I'm not sure that's what I'm not liking.
Aurelius -- Love this one. Out there but great!
Xavier -- Love this one too! I have a little soft spot in my heart for this one.
Liev -- nms
Sorin -- Love this one but prefer the spelling Soren.
Teifryn -- not sure about pronunciation, nms
Zealand -- interesting, but not my favorite. I think it would be neat on someone else's kid though ^_^
