I love:
Adrian
Ari
Caspian
Elijah
Felix
Gabriel


I like:
Aaron - preferred spelling

Just ok:
Adam
Andrew - bores me
Balthazar - It certainly isn't bland/boring but I am not sure how practical it is. I wouldn't use it myself but I can understand the appeal and it definitley keeps my interest. It does have a lack of potential nn's. Maybe best as a mn?
Blake
Braden - preferred spelling - makes me think of donkey's.
Brady
Brendan - preferred spelling
Brian
Casey - preferred spelling
Cedric
Kyle - 10000000 trillion preferred spelling. Chile would be pushed down to my strongly dislike list.
Christian/Christopher - preferred spellings.
Dane
Daniel
Declan
Donovan
Edward - The Twilight connection bother me.
Ephraim
Evan
Frederick
Garrett
Griffin

Gregory
Harvey
Isaac

Not my style:

Damian - Omen
Damon
Darren
David - bland
Dawson
Dean
Derek - dated
Devon
Douglas - dated

Strongly dislike:
Barak - Obama?


Actually I know a guy named Barak (he pronounces it BAR-ek)...His name is Barak Benjamin Thomas. I've known Barak since like 6th grade and at camp he saved me soo many times...I would love to use it in honor of him.

Thanks for the comments.

I've never seen/heard Barak before but I immediately think of Barack Obama and was expecting it to be pronounced like the President. Neither name is my style, I tend to find B names harsh sounding. It is nice that you want to honor your friend.
