Names with a similar vibe to August

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] berries!

We recently found out we’re expecting a boy in early [name_f]April[/name_f] and are absolutely thrilled! Our current front runner is [name_u]August[/name_u] [name_m]Arthur[/name_m], with [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] as a first name being a close second. We’d like to consider more names with similar qualities to [name_u]August[/name_u]- a strong male name that is familiar, yet uncommon ([name_m]IRL[/name_m] in the US), and…I’m really struggling now to convey this feeling it gives me of being, for lack of better words/phrases, somewhat whimsical/more out there/interesting, while still classic. Names with interesting historical associations a plus.

Any and all suggestions welcome! GO!

First:I love the name [name_u]August[/name_u], it’s the month I was born in!
[name_m]Anthony[/name_m] (nn [name_u]Tony[/name_u])
[name_m]Burton[/name_m]
[name_m]Archer[/name_m]
[name_m]Leo[/name_m] (Or [name_m]Leon[/name_m]?)
[name_m]Asher[/name_m]
[name_m]Edmund[/name_m]

So, I’m having a hard time with this, because [name_u]August[/name_u] represents something entirely different for me, but I’ll give it a go.

[name_m]Caspar[/name_m] (like [name_m]Caspar[/name_m] [name_m]David[/name_m] [name_m]Friedrich[/name_m])
[name_m]Hugo[/name_m]
[name_m]Ansel[/name_m]
[name_m]Phineas[/name_m]
[name_m]Olaf[/name_m]
[name_m]Harry[/name_m]
[name_m]Rufus[/name_m]
[name_m]Otto[/name_m]
[name_u]Asa[/name_u]
[name_m]Alistair[/name_m]
[name_m]Ferdinand[/name_m]

My first thought was [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] but you have already got that. Other names that seem to remind me of [name_u]August[/name_u]:

[name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Harold[/name_m]
[name_u]Maurice[/name_u]
[name_m]Gerard[/name_m]
[name_u]Ellis[/name_u]
[name_m]Nathan[/name_m]
[name_m]Cedric[/name_m]
[name_m]Ronan[/name_m]
[name_m]Silas[/name_m]
[name_m]Vincent[/name_m]

I’m not sure if it is too out there, but the first name that I thought of was [name_m]Caspian[/name_m]. I also think of [name_m]Sylvan[/name_m] and [name_u]Constantine[/name_u].

By the way you describe what you’re looking for, though, I think [name_u]August[/name_u] is perfect!
