I like all of them except Oswin and Bliss. Although I really like Posy, it doesn't seem like a name an adult would have. I love, love, love Hero and I think Jess is way cooler than Jesse. I don't know why he would get bullied for it. I also agree with celianne that Kitt looks more complete.
I think that you are never going to find a name that makes everyone happy. And if kids are going to tease your kid, they're going to do it whether he's named Jess or whether he's named Thomas. My name is Amy. You wouldn't really expect there to be teasing potential, but I was given cruel nicknames. None of your names are ridiculous (except maybe Bliss) and they don't really seem exceptionally tease-worthy. Just pick a name that you love and that you can see your child growing into, because they are going to spend much more of their lives as adults than as children.Under construction...

I totally understand your feelings about "Hyper masculine sounding words". I feel the same way. I know you love Milo (I love this too). There's a name that's probably too close, but if you're worried Milo is getting too popular, you might look at Winslow (for a boy!). This is a favorite of mine. It's the name of an uncle. I think it would totally work. It's my favorites list although I will probably use it for middle name.
Another W name you might like is Wilhelmina for girl which is not too girly in my opinion. Possible Nicknames: Willie, Will, Billie, Minnie, and Mina.

Emilyva: I think Winslow could grow on me; if there were an instance where I didn't use Milo I would definitely consider Winslow, thanks!
I have a knee-jerk "yuck" reaction to Wilhelmina for some reason. Just not my style at all. My sister has also called dibs on William if her next child is a boy, which sounds similar to me.
It's hilarious that you brought up Gilmore Girls! I do like the show (just started re-watching the 1st season over again because of your comment!), but Milo and Jess aren't spawned to it...but I think it solidified my love of Jess and the fact that I think it totally works as a masculine name. Milo is a name I've loved since childhood and didn't even realize it was the actor's name until now. How funny!
Thanks, everyone who chimed in! It's definitely made me reconsider some of the names. I'm glad I'm not having kids for a good while so that I can have a long think about these names!I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.
My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.
