    Expanding the boys' list

    Hi Berries! I am considering some new names for my boys' list. Which of the following go with my current list, which consists of: Lorcan Henry, Felix Edmund, and Magnus Philip?

    The Contenders:

    Beric nn Bear
    Colin
    Finnian nn Finn - Not sure whether Finn still seems magical or is too used now to have that spark.
    Heath
    Hector
    Iver
    Malcolm nn Mac
    Roark nn Rory - Have a feeling this won't get much love, but my question is, is it too hard to spell?
    Soren
    Theon

    *Game of Thrones reference for Beric or Theon doesn't bug me.

    General thoughts on the names are welcome, or suggestions. It's hard to find names that give me the same satisfaction/feel as my top 3, especially unusual Lorcan, but I think I'm getting somewhere.

    Astrid | Beatrix | Elodie | Elsie | Flora
    Freya | Hattie | Helena | Leonie | Louisa
    Linnea | Maeve | Margot | Matilda | Sanna | Theodora

    Alfred | Barnaby | Cassian | Conrad | Edmund
    Everett | Felix | Finnian | Hector | Iver | Lorcan
    Magnus | Oscar | Otto | Rory | Toby | Winston

    Hey! I LOVE Lorcan, Felix, and Magnus!!

    I haven't watched GoT so I didn't get the reference but I think:

    Theon
    Iver - Really like this name
    Roark- it's interesting.. but I feel like it's a tongue twister of sorts
    Soren
    Beric- although it reminds me of barricks

    Will go great with your top three.

    Some suggestions:

    Lysander
    Cormac
    Alaric- instead of Beric
    Lucian
    Winslow
    Caius
    Arden

    Lorcan, Felix, Magnus, and

    Colin
    Finnian
    Iver
    Roark (I do not think it’s hard to spell, some people might add an E at the end. Family, friends, people in your son’s life will learn how to spell it the way you want.
    Soren
    Theon

    My personal favorites are; Colin, Finnian, Finn, Rory, and Soren.

    @mj21: Thank you so much! Glad you like what's already on my list. Of your suggestions I really love Cormac and Lucian.

    @lovemysweeties: Thank you for your input! I'm glad you think Colin goes, I'm a little unsure if he's unusual enough.

    Colin is my son’s name. Glad to see you spelled it with one L. I have Felix on my short list. Lorcan is Irish but I love Scottish and Irish names and feel they go well with each other. I also love quite a few Dutch/Swedish names and many fit with Colin. Honestly, I feel Colin fits perfectly with your top 3.

    Even though Theon Greyjoy dampens it because he's awful, lol, I LOVE the name Theon.

    Beric is also nice, mostly because I think Bear is a fantastic nickname, maybe also.a little for the GoT reference because that man is badass.

    Finnian/Finn is pretty great. I love Finn. It's so simple, yet handsome and can be both soft and rugged at the same time somehow.

    @lovemysweeties: Colin is a handsome name! I prefer it with one L, looks more natural to me that way.

    @emarias22: Thank you! I like Duncan and Ronan.

    @enoel3: I must confess I do like the actor who plays Theon, but the character? Definitely a controversial one. Thank you for your thoughts on the names.

    @katinka: Thank you! I have considered some of your suggestions, and Otto and Conrad are actually on my longer list of possibilities. Haldor intrigues me, I haven't heard of him before, but the sounds are quite nice.
