Thoughts on these names? + Combos?

I have a (big!) batch of names I’ve been thinking about and wanted to hear people’s thoughts on them (particularly in relation to my style, but I welcome people’s personal feelings on them, too). No need to comment on every single name (unless you want to), but comments on whichever ones stick out to you – for whatever reason – would be appreciated. A lot of these would be more likely as middle names – if you care to suggest combos for any of them, that would be cool, too!
What do you think about…


Abednigo - interesting name but the end reminds me a bit too much of an unpleasant and racist word

Alger - is this said [name_m]Al[/name_m]-juh or [name_m]Al[/name_m]-guh

Archimedes -i like it. Grand and bold but also the possibility of nn [name_m]Archie[/name_m]

Arkady -this is really cool. I like the flow

Baker - this feels distinctive but also on trend

Banjo - I’m not wild on it. It doesnt feel namey to me

Boris - [name_u]Boris[/name_u] [name_m]Johnson[/name_m] has ruined this name

I like the contrast of a modern name paired with something more traditional to give it some weight.

Dover, [name_m]Farley[/name_m], [name_u]Jesse[/name_u], [name_m]Judge[/name_m] (I know someone with this name and have always thought it was so cool!), [name_u]Kirby[/name_u], [name_m]Leroy[/name_m], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u], and [name_m]Webster[/name_m]. All are familiar, easy to spell and pronounce, a sort of vintage cool, and unexpected!

Not sure this helps at all but as I was reading your list all I could think about was the name [name_m]Eneko[/name_m]. I feel it would absolutely fit this list for some unknown reason
