    Hi there.

    Here are my thoughts:

    Alec-I like this. It's smart, witty & like-able.

    Benjamin-This is a good name, although quite common. It's strong & classic. Benjamin is a smart serious guy, but Ben or Benny is a little more easy going.

    Charlie-I love this, & don't mind just Charlie. It's so friendly.

    David-This is a nice solid name. A David is kind, gentle, thoughtful & quiet.

    Elliot-I love this (although prefer Elliott or Eliot). It gives off a similar vibe as Alec to me, & they're great as brothers.

    Edgar-I like Edgar a lot! A very under used dashing name. It's simple yet not at all common. It's a little artsy, but also strong & handsome.

    Freddie-Kind of cute. I don't like Fred though, because it just sounds sort of dopey. Freddie is more charming. I prefer it as a nn for Frederic.

    Gregory-This is okay. I feel like it's sort of dated, but not terrible. I'm not really sure how to picture one. Just kind of a dad name, LOL.

    Isaac-This is alright. I don't love it, but it's perfectly nice & solid. It's fairly popular. I think the nn Ike makes it a little more unique & charming.

    Jack-This is also very popular, but I love it. It's friendly, outgoing, sporty & witty.

    Jacob-Good solid name. Obviously there are a lot of them. Jacob is quiet, thoughtful & outdoorsy.

    Joseph-I like Joseph a lot. It's handsome . Joseph is a nice guy who likes to read & learn, & is also a good friend. I don't care for Joe or Joey for some reason though.

    Joshua-Meh, this is okay. Way over done, & I just don't find it as classic as some other biblical names. It was just so popular in the 80s & 90s that it seems dated.

    Julian-I love it! Top of my list. Julian is quiet, kind & maybe a little outdoorsy like Jacob.

    Kai-I don't love this, but not real reason why. I guess it's kind of cool. I definitely picture a surfer dude.

    Lukas-Hm. This is not my style. It's just sort of trendy these days. I'd at least do Lucas. It's fine...I'm just sick of it.

    Liam-I love this. Oddly, I'm not sick of this even though it's #1 on the SSA list. Oh well. It's my nephew's name, & he's a great Liam. Very knowledgable, outdoorsy, athletic & a mediator.

    Nathan-This is a good solid name. Nice, quiet guy. Nate is maybe a little more sporty though. I like Nate a lot.

    Ned-So cute. I think that it's really nick-namey though, so maybe would do it as a nn for Edward. Ned is witty & friendly.

    Oliver-Very popular, but a nice name. Maybe a little snobby.

    Oscar-I like this a lot. Oscar is a bit mysterious & artsy, but a nice guy.

    Peter-Great solid classic. Friendly, smart & a good friend.

    Robin (for a boy)-I don't know. This is one of those names that sounds too feminine for a boy & too masculine for a girl. I guess it reminds me of Christopher Robin, & he's pretty nice.

    Simon-Very cute. Simon is kind of like Alec & Elliot. Witty & bright. Maybe a little nerdy, but in a fun way.

    Toby-This is okay. I'd prefer it as a nn for Tobias. Just Toby seems sort of childish on its own.

    Theo-Cute. Kind of like Simon. Maybe it's the chipmunk thing! I like it better as a nn for Theodore. It's getting pretty popular.

    Thomas-This is a good solid name. Thomas is thoughtful & likes to read, but also maybe a good handyman type guy. I don't like Tom or Tommy much personally. Not sure why.

    Vincent-This is okay. I kind of like it. It could be an artist type name, but also could be a mobster, so not sure!

    Hope this helps.

    Most of the names I would categorize them as Airy/whimsical... yet they could still suit a scholar.
    ~Joan/Joanie, Winifred/Winry, Heidi~
    Evangeline | Felicity | Mae | Alice | Dorothy | Ingrid | Margaery | Elizabeth | Bernadette

    ~Conrad, Rex, Isaac/Ike~
    William | Hugh | Herschel | Ian | Barnaby | Hugo | Lawrence | Rowan | Donovan | Xavier

    Strong, classic, bright names. I don't care as much for Charlie, Freddie, Ned or Oscar but the others have style that will last through the ages.
    I would expect a chill, intelligent and down to earth guy from these names.
