I like combos with a mix of popular and uncommon names in them, so that's pretty much the style I've got in these lists. I would love some opinions on them, and any suggestions you have!

Asa Huckleberry -Not a fan of Asa but nice combo.

Asher Bellamy -Feels a little feminine to me but that could be a good thing.

Aubrey William -NAF of Aubrey on boys but William makes the gender clear.

Atley Benedict -Good combo!

Brogan Robert James -I think it's odd to only have one with 2 middles, only really like it as Brogan Robert.

Byron Mordecai -A little unusual but a fine pairing.

Calvin Draco -Definitely gives me a vampire vibe. Maybe switch with Asher, Asher Draco and Calvin Bellamy?

Caden Winter -Unfortunately Caden is being used on girls so I wouldn't pair it with Winter.

Digby Holden -Digby sounds more like a nickname to me tbh.

Dax Hawthorne -Love this, might be my favorite so far!

Deacon Felix -I like this but it also feels a little off...maybe switch with Caden, Deacon Winter and Caden Felix?

Emrys Harper -A little unsure on this one.

Edmund Aloysius -No clue how to pronounce Aloysius.

Eliot Thackeray -Good combo!

Emory Calix -Calix is a little odd.

Fox Nathanael -NAF of the spelling of Nathanael but sounds fine together.

Finley Balthasar -Balthasar as a name always makes me chuckle but they are a fine pair.

Finnick Jude -Good combo!

Huxley Jonah -Unsure on Jonah with Huxley.

Henry Montague -Great combo! Another favorite!

Hugo Penley -Good combo!

Hamish Rafferty -Hamish is a little odd but fine combo otherwise.

Isaac Bravery -Bravery seems weird to me but, maybe a switch with Emrys, Emrys Bravey and Isaac Harper?

Jago Fletcher -NAF of Jago because of potential pronunciation issues.

Jack Lysander -Good combo!

Jay Osiris -Not sure how to pronounce Osiris, kind of similar OCyrus would be?

Lane Maverick -Good combo!

Lennon Samuel -A little off imo but good combo.

Leo Hawking -Good combo!

Lucas Prospero -NAF of Prospero, I think just Prosper would be better.

Miller Jackson -Surname heavy but good combo!

Mackenzie Ajax -Since Mackenzie isn't super popular on boys, I'd use a more common boys name for a middle. Maybe switch with Lennon, Lennon Ajax and Mackenzie Samuel?

Oscar Tristan -Don't care for the flow of these two.

Otto Wilberforce -Wilberforce only makes me think of the Seewald's now, sorry.
Orion August -Good combo!

Peyton Maxfield -This is definitely my favorite one!

Rainer Montgomery -Great combo!

Rocco Sebastian -Good combo!

Rudy Llewellyn -I've always assumed Llewellyn was like Lou-ellen but if that's not right, no clue how to pronounce it.

Russell Fisher -Good combo!

Sylvester Pine -I'm biased towards Sylvester but, good combo!

Shepherd Oliver -A little off but good combo.

Theodore Finch -Good combo!

Vander Ignatius -Eh, a little too odd of a pairing.

Wren Fitzwilliam -I prefer Ren for boys but, good combo!

I've sorted them into categories to make it easier.

 

Love

Asher Bellamy - Usually  I could take or leave Asher, but I think it goes wonderfully with Bellamy. Sort of a soft-sounding but still masculine combo. Really great!

Caden Winter - Caden is another one of those names that I don't love, but you've really made it work here. I've never thought to use Winter on boys, although I love the nickname Win, so it's really a great idea. A really unexpectedly great combo.

Eliot Thackeray - Super handsome and literary! Eliot/variants have been growing on me more and more recently - Elliot Calder is on my own list.

Theodore Finch - Really great combo all around. I've always loved Finch.

Wren Fitzwilliam - Really handsome! Wren on boys is growing on me after seeing it a couple times, and I adore Fitz names. The flow here is perfect.

 

Like

Asa Huckleberry - Love Asa, and I like the combo's flow and literary connection, but Huckleberry seems like a bit much for me.

Aubrey William - Still not sure if I like Aubrey (on either gender), but you're starting to convince me haha. William is a handsome classic and they go really well together.

Finley Balthasar - It's very surprising to me that I like a combo with Balthasar as the middle, but I love Finley and I just think this is a really charming combo.

Henry Montague - I like Henry (although a personal connection has made it unusable for me), and Montague is a cool nod to Romeo & Juliet. Really nice flow/sound too.

Hugo Penley - I really like Hugo, and Penley is interesting. They go well together.

Leo Hawking - Strong and animal-y but also soft and classic. It has a really good sound.

Rudy Llewellyn - I adore Rudy, and Llewellyn is interesting in sound, but quite difficult to remember how to spell. They go well together.

 

 

Neutral

Brogan Robert James - not crazy about Brogan (mostly because of the 'bro' beginning, it reminds me of the common slang), but the combo has a good flow.

Calvin Draco - I like Cal names, and Calvin is no exception, but I don't like Draco (the Harry Potter association is just so strong), so it kind of balances it out.

Dax Hawthorne - Love Hawthorne as a middle (great literary association, and a down-low nod to my beloved Gale Hawthorne from the Hunger Games - and also nature related! what a winner). Dax I don't really like, but it's not horrible.

Deacon Felix - Not a fan of Deacon, but I absolutely love Felix. It's so hard to find something to pair Felix with and have it sound good, and you've pulled it off.

Fox Nathanael - Fox is cool, but I would probably prefer it as a middle. I also prefer the spelling Nathaniel. It has a good flow, but I think I would like Nathanael Fox a bit better.

Finnick Jude - I really like how this combo sounds, and I adore Jude, but I just can't get on board with Finnick. It reminds me of the word finicky, which isn't really a good thing (although the character in THG is quite lovable).

Jago Fletcher - Really interesting combo. I love Fletcher. I've actually never heard of Jago, and I'm not totally on board yet, but it sounds kind of cool.

Jack Lysander - I think Lysander is really cool for a middle, I'm just iffy on using Jack as a first when there's so many more interesting firsts to choose from (I've struggled to find a spot for Jack in my own list, since I'd like to honor a relative).

Jay Osiris - Don't like Osiris, but Jay is nice.

Lennon Samuel - If it were Lennox instead of Lennon, this would be in 'like' (although it wouldn't flow as well). There's just a bit too much N in Lennon for me. Samuel is a great middle though.

Miller Jackson - Decent names, but a bit too surname-y for a combo. I mostly noticed because on The 100, one of my favorite TV shows, there are two characters who are called by their last names, Miller and Jackson.

Oscar Tristan - Both names are nice, but I think the the flow is a bit off, maybe due to the S sounds and both being two syllables and sort of abrupt.

Orion August - I really love August, but I'm not a big fan of Orion - I like the stellar association, but I don't like the way it sounds.

Rainer Montgomery - Rainer is handsome (Did you once have Hugo Rainer on your list? It's coming to mind and it's a handsome combo), and they sound decent together, but Montgomery is just such a mouthful and not really my cup of tea.

Russell Fisher - Not a fan of Russell, but Fisher is really handsome as a middle and they go well together.

Sylvester Pine - Not going to lie, it sounds like a tree species (although it has a good ring to it). I guess for me, Pine is a little too far into nature to work as a name. Sylvester might be nice as a middle. 

Shepherd Oliver - I like Oliver, and Shepherd is okay, but I feel like it's not a great match. The flow is a bit clunky to me (which is rare for your combos). I think Oliver Shepherd has a much better sound.

 

 

Don't like

Atley Benedict - Just not a fan of either name. The combo sounds nice, but as a name, Atley feels sort of... unfinished, I guess? Like it's missing something. Adler Benedict would be interesting.

Byron Mordecai - Just don't like either one here, sorry.

Digby Holden - I just really don't like Digby. Holden is okay.

Emrys Harper - I like Harper on boys, and I want to like Emrys... but it just doesn't work for me.

Edmund Aloysius - Not a fan of either name.

Emory Calix - Not for me. It feels overly trendy, and I don't really like either name individually.

Huxley Jonah - I like Jonah, but I don't like Huxley at all. Sorry.

Hamish Rafferty - Not a fan of either name here.

Isaac Bravery - Isaac is okay, but in my opinion Bravery is too much of a word to be used as a name.

Lane Maverick - Just don't like either name.

Lucas Prospero - I like Lucas, but I don't like Prospero and the Ss clash a bit.

Mackenzie Ajax - Really dislike both of these names.

Otto Wilberforce - I think Otto is cute, but Wilberforce is just too much for me.

Peyton Maxfield - Don't like either name, sorry.

Rocco Sebastian - I really like Sebastian, but I don't like Rocco at all.

Vander Ignatius - Not a fan of either name.

 

I'll get around to the girls eventually!
