Keep:
[name]Abram[/name]
[name]Andrew[/name]
[name]Anthony[/name]
[name]Asher[/name]
[name]Callum[/name]
[name]Charles[/name]

I’ve made a list of the ones I like enough to consider as first names myself. I’ve observed, especially in the name games, that you and I aren’t always on the same wavelength, but I hope that’s okay! I like a lot of these. By the way, I’ve wondered for a long time why you love [name]Dean[/name] so. I remember from different posts that you think [name]James[/name] and [name]Seth[/name] are kind of boring. What makes [name]Dean[/name] special to you?

[name]Abram[/name]
[name]Asher[/name]
[name]Benedict[/name] (not sure about this one because of [name]Benedict[/name] [name]Arnold[/name]. I think it’s a great name, though.)
[name]Callum[/name]
[name]Charles[/name]
[name]Christian[/name]
[name]Daniel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name]
[name]Edward[/name]
[name]Eliot[/name]
[name]Gabriel[/name]
[name]George[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name]
[name]Jack[/name]
[name]Jameson[/name]
[name]Joachim[/name] (though I haven’t thoroughly locked down its pronunciation myself!)
[name]Jude[/name]
[name]Priestly[/name] intrigues me. I have never heard it as a name. I don’t think I like it enough to use it, but if you like or don’t mind the image of a priest, what about [name]Priest[/name]? I think I like that better.
[name]Sebastian[/name]
[name]Simon[/name]
[name]Walter[/name]
[name]William[/name]

Quite a few more of these–[name]Aloysius[/name], [name]Ambrose[/name], [name]Breccan[/name], [name]Ignatius[/name], [name]Raphael[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name] for sure–I think would make stunning middle names, but I personally wouldn’t use them as firsts. Best wishes for the list! I’ve enjoyed seeing its evolution.

I would keep:

[name]Asher[/name]
[name]Beckett[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name]
[name]Callum[/name]
[name]Daniel[/name]
[name]Declan[/name]
[name]Gabriel[/name]
[name]Henry[/name]
[name]Jack[/name]
[name]Jameson[/name]
[name]Jude[/name]
[name]Leo[/name]
[name]Samuel[/name]
[name]Sebastian[/name]
[name]Simon[/name]
[name]Theodore[/name]
[name]William[/name]

It’s so hard with your list, because there are only a few I really want to nix from your list, and even then, I probably wouldn’t mind 99% of them as MNs…
