Slightly shorter boys list. We're getting closer!

I’d like to hear some of your guys’ expert opinion on our shorter, but still long list. I’d like to get a top five or so before I actually get serious about deciding, so it would be great if you guys could pick some favorites, or just tell which ones you think have got to go. Thanks!

If you would help me out on it too I’d be so grateful!

[name]Abram[/name] ([name]Bram[/name])
[name]Ari[/name]
[name]August[/name] ([name]Gus[/name])
[name]Beau[/name]
[name]Charles[/name] ([name]Charlie[/name])
[name]Felix[/name]
[name]Henry[/name]
[name]Hugo[/name]
[name]Julian[/name]
[name]Leo[/name]
[name]Nathaniel[/name] ([name]Nate[/name] or maybe [name]Nat[/name])
[name]Oliver[/name]
[name]Theodore[/name] (Probably [name]Teddy[/name] or [name]Theo[/name])

These names have been eliminated because I feel they”re a little too out there for a first name, but I really love them, so I”d like to use one as a middle: [name]Winter[/name], [name]Valentin[/name], [name]Atlas[/name], [name]Homer[/name], or [name]Byron[/name]. Any opinions or favorite combos?

My nephew/godson’s name is [name]Ari[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Carter[/name], so [name]Ari[/name] [name]August[/name] would be a good combo, i think!

For mn’s: I think [name]Leo[/name] and [name]Julian[/name] sound very cool with the mn [name]Byron[/name]. [name]Charlie[/name] [name]Atlas[/name] has a nice ring to it, too! I’ve always been a fan of names that roll off the toungue!

[name]Hope[/name] this helps!

[name]Alexandra[/name] “[name]Lexi[/name]” [name]Lee[/name]

Ooh I am gonna have fun…

[name]Abram[/name] ([name]Bram[/name]) - I prefer [name]Abraham[/name] personally.
[name]Ari[/name] - This is too close to [name]Harry[/name] for me.
[name]August[/name] ([name]Gus[/name]) - I have a soft spot for this name possibly for the nickname [name]Gus[/name] [name]Gus[/name] and [name]Augie[/name]!
[name]Beau[/name] - I think this name is beautiful… sorry I had to! I think this name has a lot of untapped potential!
[name]Charles[/name] ([name]Charlie[/name]) - [name]Love[/name], adore this name!
[name]Felix[/name] - My guilty pleasure! I love the sound and feel of this name.
[name]Henry[/name] - So handsome!
[name]Hugo[/name] - not a fan.
[name]Julian[/name] - this name always felt ‘girly’ to me!
[name]Leo[/name] - would prefer a longer name with this as a nickname, but am not honestly a fan.
[name]Nathaniel[/name] ([name]Nate[/name] or maybe [name]Nat[/name]) - I would go with [name]Nate[/name]! love the feel of this name.
[name]Oliver[/name] - Again great name, love [name]Ollie[/name] as a nickname.
[name]Theodore[/name] (Probably [name]Teddy[/name] or [name]Theo[/name])- This is my son’s name so I am biased!

These names have been eliminated because I feel they”re a little too out there for a first name, but I really love them, so I”d like to use one as a middle: [name]Winter[/name], [name]Valentin[/name], [name]Atlas[/name], [name]Homer[/name], or [name]Byron[/name]. Any opinions or favorite combos?[/quote]
