Some really great ones here!

[name_m]Arthur[/name_m], [name_m]Atlas[/name_m], [name_u]August[/name_u], [name_m]Charles[/name_m], [name_u]Dean[/name_u], [name_u]Emmett[/name_u], [name_m]Emrys[/name_m], [name_u]Jet[/name_u], [name_m]Leo[/name_m], [name_u]Mars[/name_u], [name_m]Prosper[/name_m], [name_m]Zeke[/name_m], and [name_u]Zephyr[/name_u] are already on my list! [name_m]Charles[/name_m] and [name_u]Dean[/name_u] are family names I wish I liked more.

Seriously considering adding:

[name_m]Ambrose[/name_m]
[name_u]Asa[/name_u]
[name_m]Auric[/name_m] (so intriguing! I’d never heard this one)
[name_m]Byron[/name_m] (although I’ll probably go with the more Shakespearean version, Berowne)
[name_u]Chase[/name_u]
[name_m]Cosmo[/name_m]
[name_m]Fox[/name_m]
[name_m]Giles[/name_m]
[name_m]Graham[/name_m]/[name_m]Graeme[/name_m]
[name_u]Grey[/name_u]
[name_m]Idris[/name_m]
[name_u]Jem[/name_u]
[name_m]Knox[/name_m]
[name_u]Leaf[/name_u] (kind of a GP for me, but I love it)
[name_u]Leland[/name_u]
[name_u]Lyle[/name_u]
[name_u]Max[/name_u] (would have been my name if I were a boy!)
[name_m]Milo[/name_m]
[name_u]Rhys[/name_u]
[name_u]Sage[/name_u] (love it on both genders; I need to get over myself and just add it to the list)
[name_m]Wilder[/name_m]

And [name_u]Ash[/name_u], it’s funny you listed [name_m]Saxon[/name_m]—my brothers go to school (sixth grade) with a kid named [name_m]Saxon[/name_m] and it’s always made me cringe (sorry.) It’s also the mascot of [name_u]Langley[/name_u] High School ([name_u]Langley[/name_u] as in the [name_f]CIA[/name_f] [name_u]Langley[/name_u]) which is the snootiest, most 1% public school in existence, so not a great association. I can appreciate that it has a cool sound, though.

Thanks, guys! Keep 'em coming. Repeats are totally fine.
