    Ambrose, Emery, Alastair, Alec, Caspar..... what do you rate these names?

    Ambrose, Emery, Alastair, Alec, Caspar, Rowan, Noel, Gareth, Leon, Morven, Emeric, Clive & Alaric.

    And would you use any?

    What names would you add if you were to expand this list?

    I love...


    I like...


    I dislike...

    Emery - Too much like the nail file. Amory is still in the boys camp so I think it's a better option.
    Alec - Alexander nn Alec would be my preference.
    Leon - I know this name is popular in parts of Europe but to me it's "dated". Too many rough bullies were named Leon when I was growing up.
    Morven - too much like geeky Marvin and Milton
    Emeric - Ok but nothing exciting. I don't like the "ric" sound very much.
    Clive - an English name that sounds like a hick
    Alaric - I used to like this name when I was younger but now it's lost its appeal for some reason (the "ric" could be the issue).
    All the best,

    Ambrose - like, but feels very posh and hard to wear
    Emery - feels kind of feminine, prefer Emrys for a boy
    Alastair - I really like this one
    Alec, Caspar, Noel, Gareth, Clive - not really keen on these
    Rowan - only like this on a girl, prefer Roan for a boy
    Leon - it's ok
    Morven - I've only ever heard of this for a girl and prefer it for girls
    Emeric - not keen, reminds me of emetic
    Alaric - I like this, but not sure if it's easy to wear. And not keen on Al or Ric as a nn.

    Like Alastair best.

    Ambrose is a really great name, but I'd prefer it as a middle name (Emrys is the Welsh variation, which is one of my favorite names, and also seems to fit with the style you like)
    Emery is a nice name, but I much prefer Emrys
    Alastair is great. Noble.
    Alec is okay, though it feels a little insubstantial to me.
    Casper is a great name, though I prefer Jasper.
    Rowan isn't bad, but not of the same caliber to some of your other choices.
    Noel I'm not such a fan of.
    Gareth is okay, I prefer Garrett (sp?) a bit more though. Neither are of the same caliber as some of your other names though.
    Leon is decent, though I prefer Lionel or Leonidas or Leopold quite a bit more.
    Morven I don't like at all. Feels harsh.
    Emeric (Emmerich) is a great name, one I considered for awhile, until I realized I liked Emrys a lot more.
    Clive feels a little harsh to me also, but I can understand the appeal.
    Alaric is another one I was looking at for quite some time, and would be high on my own list if it didn't sound too similar to my brother's name.
