    You have a great list! I voted for Alaric, but here are my top five, in order, from your names above.

    1. Alaric
    2. Julius - I like Julian very much too, but you might as well not repeat the final -n sound as Gretchen if you have other options, imo
    3. Theodore
    4. Matthias
    5. Aurelian - I know this is counter to my Julius statement, but I just like this version quite a bit more than Aurelius.

    Best of luck!

    I voted Theodore because it is my personal favorite boys name (and maybe name in general) of all time. But I also really love Alaric and Henry.

    I voted for Theodore. Second choice is Henry. I hope you feel better!
    Just a teenage writer with a fascination for names!

    Cordelia and Gretchen are both recognizable but a bit unique and eccentric.

    I think Matthias fits that description the best.

    My second pick would be Alaric with nn Ari. A little bit of a different style than your others but still great. You could also use Ari as a nn for something like Darius or even Aristotle.
