    I've never read the series, so I really have no personalities to attach to the names, but based on the names themselves, I like Owen the best. I love its simple, handsome, quiet, understated, rugged Gaelic masculinity. Matthew would have been my second favorite--I love the Biblical character, and I've just always liked Matthew. I also love the nns Matt/Matty. I think it's so sweet and classic, and the idea of a little boy named Matty is just adorable to me.

    Gilbert & Walter are my absolute favorites, maybe because I adore the characters, but LM gave them great names.

    I'm just a third-culture girl with an affinity for names.

    Gilbert is an irresistible name to me and Walter is soft yet strong like the character.

    I voted for Gilbert because I love the character. Plus, I think Gil is a great nickname!
