New Name List - Would Love Feedback!

[name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I find boys names really difficult.
So I decided to start from the bottom of the UK name list from 2020 and see if there was anything ‘super rare’ that called to me (and worked my up, some on this list are decidedly not rare!).

[name_f]Every[/name_f] name needs to work with [name_u]Avery[/name_u].
Any girl we have would be [name_f]Alice[/name_f], as a frame of naming reference.
We agree on a lot of girls names very easily, so things leaning more unisex is not necessarily a downside for us!

So, new list of boys names - any stand outs or ones you think are really ‘me’ are appreciated:

[name_u]Winter[/name_u]
Safin
[name_u]Rowe[/name_u]
Rheo (Ray-oh, I think?)

[name_m]Benedict[/name_m]
[name_m]Tadhg[/name_m]
[name_u]Timothy[/name_u]
[name_u]Laurence[/name_u] (name of close friend’s younger brother, not sure yet how much that matters?)

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]!

I’ve looked through the 2020 [name_u]England[/name_u] & [name_m]Wales[/name_m] list a few times so I’m interested to know which names stood out to you!

[name_f]My[/name_f] absolute favourites from your list are:

[name_u]Winter[/name_u]
[name_u]Luca[/name_u]
[name_u]Griffin[/name_u]
[name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_u]Finnegan[/name_u]
[name_u]Raine[/name_u]
[name_m]Nathan[/name_m]
[name_u]Kit[/name_u]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u]
[name_m]Tadhg[/name_m] (I love this name and love to see it mentioned!)

When considering [name_f]Alice[/name_f] & [name_u]Avery[/name_u], I think I’d have to eliminate [name_m]Evander[/name_m] because I think [name_m]Evander[/name_m] and [name_u]Avery[/name_u] sound a bit awkward next to each other.

I prefer [name_m]Wilbur[/name_m] to [name_m]Wilbert[/name_m]. I do like [name_m]Wilbert[/name_m] but I’ve never really thought about it much before.
