    Love: Declan, Callum and Lachlan. I think all of these go great with Nora and they are not very common.

    Don't love (eliminate): Lyle, Harry, and Ewan.
    Lyle: I don't like names like Lyle or Miles. I just don't find them appealing
    Harry: Too old man-ish and I think there is too much teasing potential
    Ewan: Too hard to say.

    Suggestions: Roman, Ezra, and Soren

    My favorites on your list are Sebastien, Simon, and Griffin. I think Griffin and Nora are just perfect together.

    I would eliminate:

    Kai- It's glaringly different than Nora.
    Keith and Craig- Both of these seem boring and dated to me.

    I would add:

    Leander: I prefer it to Leland. It has the vintage charm, softness, and elegance of Nora.

    Keats: Instead of Keith or Kai. It's a one syllable K name that is unusual, but sounds current, a nice, sophisticated literary name. Nora and Keats would be adorable.

    Seamus: One of my favorite Irish names.
    Mom to Rusha, Tarek, and Naseem

    Lachlan- Doesn't fit well with Nora in my opinion.
    Craig- Sounds a bit 50 year old man to me, and Nora & Craig don't sound right to me.
    Kai- Nora and Kai are two completely different styles of names.

    Suggestions: Noah (if you don't mind the rhyming of Noah and Nora), Jack, Gideon

    I love your list! A lot of them are very stylish with a bit of an edge. As a result, the three I would drop are the ones that seem to be less interesting:

    Keith: My great uncle's name. He's a farmer. So I see an old farmer.
    Bradley: There is nothing wrong with this name, but it feels a little dated and common.
    John: This was going to be my name if I was a boy. My mom is a huge name nut but I can never figure out why she loved John so much. It's so boring!

    I suggest: Eamon (like Lachlan), Theo (a classic nickname with revival cred like Harry), Eoin (You have 3 variations on John already--John, Ian, and Ewan--here's another.
