Which do you prefer?
I'm trying to cut down my list a little, so I've been grouping names with similar sounds.
What do you think of these names? (be honest) Which are your favourites?
Which do you think are usable/unusable/middles only?
Brennan, Calen, Nolan
Caspian, Darian, Finnian/Phinean, Sebastian
Finnegan, Gilligan, Hartigan
Devin, Peregrin, Severin, Thorin, Torin
Auberon, Ecthelion, Endymion, Gideon, Solomon
Thanks in advance!Arthur | Bartholomew | Elias | Ephraim | Ernest | Ferris | Isidore | Phineas | Roland | Rupert | Ted | Victor
August | Brenna | Eliza | Evanthe | Esmeralda | Freda | Ivy | Mara | Marceline | Matilda | Trudy | Winifred

Brennan, Calen, Nolan - Calen is my favorite. Brennan is outdated and my least favorite.
Caspian, Darian, Finnian/Phinean, Sebastian - I like this list really well. Sebastian, Finnian and Caspian are all great.
Finnegan, Gilligan, Hartigan - Finnegan is literary and amazing.
Devin, Peregrin, Severin, Thorin, Torin - This isn't my style. Very mythic sounding.
Auberon, Ecthelion, Endymion, Gideon, Solomon - Again, very mythic and heavy for an adult to wear.

Usable First Names (my faves are bolded)
Usable as Middle Names
Auberon - I love this name but he was King of the Fairies so it would be hard for a boy to pull it off as a first name.
Endymion - this would be difficult for a plain boy to bear as a first name
Finnegan - better as a spunky middle name
Hartigan - too surnamey for my taste
Peregrin - spelled this Tolkien way it's better in the middle spot. Peregrine is better as a first name.
Dislike these names...
Calen -lacks substance, I wouldn't use it
Darian - see Calen
Ecthelion - unusable
Gilligan - too connected to the 1960's dim-witted TV character on "Gilligan's Island".
Severin - dislike the meaning
Thorin - only if you're a Tolkien Dwarf.
