    Silas- he loves this, I only like it.- I think it's great. Hearing it on Weeds made me like it more for real life.
    Knox - LOVE, but getting popular. Still love it though. Named for John Knox the Scottish theologian.- I'm not wild about the sound personally. I wouldn't use it but I don't think it's too popular to use.

    Mordecai - probably only as a middle name, but who knows? nn Cai (Kai)- agree with a pp who said it sounds like a novel's antagonist.

    Luther - love, but out last name starts with L, so not sure. After Martin Luther, the theologian.- Luther plus L last name could sound a little action heroish. I like it as a middle though.

    Titus- not my style. Sounds pretentious in a weird way (sorry!)

    Duncan- after John Duncan, the Theologian.- I love Duncan! Have a friend by the name who is such a great guy. He's really tall and the nn Dunk fits his basketballer stature, plus his family is all from the UK (one generation removed from immigrants I think) so it's a cool name.

    Deacon- eh. I prefer Dean, also a title name but sounds less obvious.

    Shiloh- have Brad and Angelina ruined this for a boy?- no way have they ruined it for a boy. I think it's a lot classier on a boy than girl, actually.

    Shepherd - actually really like this one- yeah shepherd is nice. Kinda makes me think of a dog, but shepherds are typically quite smart much prefer this to the surnamey misspellings of Sheppard and Shepard.

    Ezekiel- nn Zeke- love it. I'd end up calling him zekie but I think it's totally adorable on a little boy, and striking, unusual on a young man but since its an established name it works.

    I'd say Duncan, Silas, Ezekiel, Shepherd.

    My favorites are Knox and Luther despite Knox increasing a lot in popularity. There were still only 817 named in the U.S. last year...which is about 1/2400 boys. It could be like Mason 10 years from now, or maybe it won't.
    Personal Favorites: Mira Cairdeas and Darrow Paine

    Best Wishes To All

    Silas - I like it. It has an edgy, vintage feel that a lot of interesting boys' names have lately. Similar names: Ezra, Nolan.

    Knox - Reminds me of a street name, but it rhymes unfortunately with "pox." Similar names: Elsworth, Linden.

    Mordecai - Awesome, totally underused. I love nickname Kai. Similar names: Casimir, Isaac.

    Luther - I dislike it. Sounds like a horror movie villain. Similar names: Ira, Alaric.

    Titus - Sounds like a bulldog, sorry. Similar names: Cassius, Lucas.

    Duncan - I know a Duncan, and the Dunkin' Donuts jokes are overwhelming. Similar names: Gregor, Michael.

    Deacon - Not bad, but doesn't catch my eye. Similar name: Cardinal, Bishop.

    Shiloh - Just reminds me of the dog in the famous book. Similar names: Uriah, Simon.

    Shepherd - It's a really obvious occupational name...bit awkward when he turns out to be a lawyer. Similar names: Mason, Baker.

    Ezekiel - I really like this one. It's a really interesting, unique Biblical name. I dislike Zeke, though. Similar names: Ephraim, Zachariah.
