    Male:
    Herapath
    Linley
    Sambourne
    Snowdon

    Female:
    Leonora
    Rosse (Row-sss-a)
    Annabella
    Catriona

    I definitely like Linley, Rosse, and Catriona. And Snowdon is pretty cool. It stands out but doesn't stand out too much. I just can't imagine your little Herapath entering kindergarten

    Fun thing about Linley and Snowdon. Princess Margaret's husband, Antony Armstrong-Jones, was created Earl of Snowdon and Viscount Linley upon their marriage. Their son, David Armstrong-Jones, currently hold the title Viscount Linley as heir-apparent to the Earldom of Snowdon.

    The boys names all have a surname feel to them. The girls names are alright.
