    Offbeat hipster: Olivine, Indio, Evren, Cormac, Abram, Atlas, Zephyr
    Edgy & to-the-point: Fallon (g), Marlow (g), Viggo, Soren, Jem, Blair, Heath, Roarke
    Energetic classics: Barnaby, Crispin, Desmond, Edgar, Felix, Hector, Irving, Oscar, Ruben
    International flavor: Cyrus, Julius, Nikolai, Otto, Raphael, Thiago

    Sansa, Astoria, Gideon Murphy, & Caspian Wesley

    Olivine, Indio Kasey, Abram Quinn, & Soren March

    lucialucentum: I think being all over is fun, so right on! Thanks for separating out your choices like that; it was nice to see the different levels of liking and disliking. Of the combos I am taken with: Atlas Vincent, Benoit Rupert, Iker Vincent, Rafferty Lloyd/Winter, Barnaby Julian, & Nolan March.

    tfzolghadr: Thanks for the in-depth commenting on the first names Keller I would be open to as a middle name (that whole big category was names I'd use for either FN or MN). Felix the Cat doesn't bug me. I agree about Benedict though; think that will have to be middle name only from now on. Of the combos I really like: Evren Paul, Blair Oberon, Caspian Amir, Cormac Henry/Rainier, Cyrus Oberon, Desmond Murphy, Duncan March, and Eamon Wesley.

    celianne: I see Atticus on a good amount of lists, but is it popular in reality? I'm not so sure. I know who Lord Byron is and don't mind him as an association. Iker's a footballer name; a bit obscure but I dig it. Jem I like because it's a different take on Jeremiah which is a common name in my family tree (cool) but really tired sounding (bad). Who is the song Lake Ponchartrain by (Maybe I have heard it; not sure).

    I haven't read the Fountainhead but I have read Ayn Rand before (yuck). Yes, like Mount Rainier; I like the name since I am a Washington native. Of your suggestions I sort of like Dashiell and Matthias but neither is something I can picture me using. Drake is all right but prefer Draco. Jacoby and Gerard - dislike; not my thing.

    danni: Thanks! I liked your response. It was very creative to categorize the names; it actually gets me very excited about the names in general, more than I was before.
    moving to new account with username I like more... since we can't just change them
