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.



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.



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.




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!

The ones I like are:


1. Aubrey William - but I think William Aubrey sounds good too. "Liam Aubrey"

2. I would choose Finley Nathaniel or Finley Jude if those were an option.

3. Hugo Penley is alright

4. Jack Lysander is interesting

5. I like Theodore Finch

Asa Huckleberry- Asa is one of my all time favorite names. Don't really like Huckleberry. It's a bit too out there for me and I'm not really feeling the flow to it. I think that Huck could be a really cool name, but with a different name than Asa.

Asher Bellamy- Bellamy seems a bit girly to me.

Aubrey William- Pretty solid combo. Liam Aubrey comes to mind.

Atley Benedict- Solid combo. One of my favorites.

Brogan Robert James- I don't like Brogan at all. It feels...made up? Also, not a big fan of double middle names. Not sure why. Just dislike them. The flow is there, though.

Byron Mordecai- Not actually sure how to pronounce this middle name.

Calvin Draco- The flow could be better, but not a bad combo.

Caden Winter- Good combo.

Digby Holden- I don't like either of these names. Digby especially. It seems like one of those names from the past that should just be left there.

Dax Hawthorne- Love Hawthorne.

Deacon Felix- Okay

Emrys Harper- Decent

Edmund Aloysius- Not sure how the middle name is pronounced, but I love Edmund. Very charming.

Eliot Thackeray- Nice combo.

Emory Calix- Not sure how I feel about this one. Maybe just Emory Cal?

Fox Nathanael- Really like this one.

Finley Balthasar- Surpringly cool name.

Finnick Jude- love this one

Huxley Jonah- Huxley will always sound like a dog name to me. Love Jonah.

Henry Montague- Love both these names. Actually, this is the first and last name of the main character from the boom The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue. I found the connection funny. But, I love both names and the flow of this combo.

Hugo Penley- Hugo is okay. Penley is a little too strange for my taste.

Hamish Rafferty- Okay.

Isaac Bravery- Not sure how I feel about Bravery, even as a middle name, but it flows pretty good.

Jago Fletcher- Interesting name.

Jack Lysander- I like this one.

Jay Osiris- Not sure how to pronounce this middle name.

Lane Maverick- Solid name.

Lennon Samuel- I think that Samuel Lennon flows better. Love Samuel.

Leo Hawking- Flows well.

Lucas Prospero- Surprised that I like this one.

Miller Jackson- Fine. Not huge on either name, but they aren't bad names.

Mackenzie Ajax- Solid name. I love Mack more as a name, but don't like it with Ajax. Mack Alexander?

Oscar Tristan- I don't think that it flows at all.

Otto Wilberforce- Otto is okay. Wilber is okay. Don't like Wilberforce.

Orion August- Solid combo.

Peyton Maxfield- Nice combo

Rainer Montgomery- Love this one.

Rocco Sebastian- I don't like Rocco at all.

Rudy Llewellyn- I don't like either of these names. A little too strange. And Rudy seems like a name that sounds weird under anyone under 80.

Russell Fisher- Pretty good.

Sylvester Pine- Love this one.

Shepherd Oliver- Love this one.

Theodore Finch- LOVE

Vander Ignatius- Vander is very cool. Ignatius is...interesting?

Wren Fitzwilliam- Wren feels very girly to me. Fitzwilliam sounds like a last name only to me.

Asa Huckleberry- Not a fan of this one. I don't like Asa. I appreciate the literary reference in Huckleberry, but I've never been able to take this name seriously.


Asher Bellamy- LOVE this combo. Asher has really grown on me. I like Bellamy a lot. It reminds me of Matt Bellamy from the band Muse.


Aubrey William- I usually think of Aubrey on girls, but this combo is so handsome. It sounds old-fashioned in the best possible way.


Atley Benedict- This one is okay, but I'm not huge on Atley. I would prefer Atlas Benedict.


Brogan Robert James- I love Brogan (and pretty much any other Irish boy name). Robert is nice, James is one of my favorites, and the combo flows well.


Byron Mordecai- I like both of these names, but I don't like them together.


Calvin Draco- Nice combo


Caden Winter- Meh, I'm kind of on the fence on this one. Caden is nice, but -aden names are so overdone currently. I like Winter, but as more of a girls name. Overall, not a bad combo, I'm just not feeling it.


Digby Holden- I like Holden a lot, but I'm not a fan of Digby.


Dax Hawthorne- Another handsome combo! I'm really crushing on Hawthorne lately...


Deacon Felix- Nice combo.


Emrys Harper- This one just looks a little too feminine for my taste.


Edmund Aloysius- Love this one!


Eliot Thackeray- I like the sound and flow of this one, though I wouldn't usually pick those names.


Emory Calix- Emory is nice, and I love Calix. I think Calix Emory sounds good too.


Fox Nathanael- Nice combo


Finley Balthasar- I'm okay with Finley, but I don't really like Balthazar. The two names don't really fit together, IMO. They just seem like two completely different styles to me. 


Finnick Jude- I love this one. It's very handsome and cool-sounding.


Huxley Jonah- Nice combo. I also like the sound of Jonah Huxley.


Henry Montague- Handsome and sophisticated.


Hugo Penley- I don't really feel strongly about this combo. I could take it or leave it.


Hamish Rafferty- I like this one a lot. 


Isaac Bravery- Another great combo! Isaac Valor would also sound nice and have the same meaning.


Jago Fletcher- Is Jago pronounced JAY-go or JAH-go? Either way, It's a nice combo.


Jack Lysander- Love this one!


Jay Osiris- This one is okay. I'd probably pair Osiris with something longer and/or a little more unusual.


Lane Maverick- Nice, though I would prefer Maverick Lane.


Lennon Samuel- I like this one! Lennox Samuel would be nice too.


Leo Hawking- Another handsome combo. I like Leo a lot. I wouldn't usually consider Hawking, but it's nice in this combo and could have Hawk as a cool nickname.


Lucas Prospero- Meh. I'm pretty neutral on Lucas, and while Prospero is a cool name, I wouldn't actually use it.


Miller Jackson- I like both these names separate, but I wouldn't use them together. I would rather not have two surnames at once.


Mackenzie Ajax- I can only see Mackenzie on a girl (perhaps due to the fact that it's my cousin's name). I'm not big on Ajax, and I don't like how these two names sound together.


Oscar Tristan- Another one of my favorites on your list. I love Tristan. Oscar isn't a name I'd usually think of, but it goes well with Tristan.


Otto Wilberforce- Otto has been a bit of a GP for me for a while. I like the sound of Wilberforce. It sounds like a powerful wizard from a fantasy novel or something. I'm not crazy about the Duggar connection, though.

Orion August- I think August Orion flows better. But this is still a great combo.


Peyton Maxfield- I've never liked the name Peyton on either gender. I don't really know why. I prefer Maxwell to Maxfield.


Rainer Montgomery- So handsome! 


Rocco Sebastian- This combo sounds very sophisticated and European. I like it!


Rudy Llewellyn- I like Llewellyn, but I'm not a fan of Rudy. I would prefer Rory Llewellyn or Remy Llewellyn


Russell Fisher- I like Russell, I don't like Fisher.


Sylvester Pine- Not a fan of this one. I don't like Sylvester and it makes me think of the cartoon cat. Pine isn't terrible, but there are other tree names that I prefer.


Shepherd Oliver- I like it.


Theodore Finch- Another great combo


Vander Ignatius- When I first saw Vander I read it Vader as in Darth Vader! XD (Not that that's a bad thing...)

Anyway, it's a nice alternative to Xander and flows well with Ignatius


Wren Fitzwilliam-  I like Fitzwilliam, but  I only see Wren as a girl name.
