    Lachlann : I love this name!

    Lane : cute nickname for Delaney

    Leannán : Cute meaning. Looks a bit too much like Leanne though. How about Lennon

    Lennox : Like it. It reminds me of a cute and witty kid

    Levi : Makes me of sweet, mild boy who is really smart

    Liam : Always like it. Don't know whether use it as a nn for William, or just Liam

    Lief : I think you mean Leif? It reminds me of Leif Eriksson, but I don't see it being too implementable today (not outside Scandinavia) - by itself, it is a kinda cool name

    Linden : Love this name!

    Linus : kinda nerdy, sorry

    Lucien : I think I prefer Lucian. It a really nice name though

    Lux : It means Light in Latin. Really cool name. I used to like the name Pax ("peace") until some celebrity used it (It'd make an awesome middle name)

    Malachi / Micah : I prefer Micah. Malachi reminds me of a Vietnam veteran for some reason (??)

    Massimo : I prefer Max

    Matteo / Mathias : Mathias is better...

    Maurice : Reminds me of Rich Meranise (sp??) for some reason

    Mikhail : if you do decide to go with it, make sure you know how to pronounce it

    Milo / Miles : I love this name! I imagine him being a boy from really artistic parents

    Noah : it was kinda cute until it's popularity explosion

    Noble : not too fond of this

    Nolan : Never really liked it, but I think it's growing on me

    Nikomedes : I like Niko. Nikomedes is a bit too "long" or something

    Oliver : it's really popular, but it can be really nice

    Oscar : could be really nice on the right kid

    Owen : It reminds me of Danny Devito (via "Throw Mama from the Train")

    Paul : nice name that I actually don't see that often

    Patrick / Padraig : I guess this it a very Irish name? :) I prefer Patrick, since Padraig reminds me of a really sad song by Bright Eyes

    Quillan / Quincy / Quinn : I think I prefer Quincy. Quinn is nice too (but it isn't popular is it?)

    Reed : I can see it being more of a middle name

    Reese / Reece / Rhys : I prefer the name Rhys, b/c it makes it more unique. Nice name

    Rórdán : LOVE this name!

    Rowan : It looks very old - which is a good thing. It's a good ol' reliable name

    Ryan / Rylan : Both are nice. I'm used to Ryan, but Rylan is more unique

    Séamus : really cool irish name

    Séan : ditto :)

    Sebastian / Sylvester / Spencer : I prefer Sebastian, but these are all really nice respectable names

    Shane : I prefer Sean

    Sullivan : I really like this name. You could call him Sully for short

    Tadghan / Teagan : Reminds me of Capt. Teague of POTC :D

    Terrence : Seems kinda dated - I KNOW ppl would call him Terry for short

    Vincent / Vinicius : I like Vincent, Vinicius sort of reminds me of Venetian.

    Wilbur : I like William more...

    Zachariah / Zacharias / Zachary : I like I prefer Zachary. Zach is REALLY popular right now, so I wouldn't use it, less the boy be one of many...

    My favorites: Lachlann (!), Lennox, Linden, Lucien, Lux, Miles/Milo, Oliver, Paul, Rhys, Rordan (!!), Rowan, Seamus, Sean, Sebastian, Sullivan, Vincent

    There's a few names I don't like, mainly due to association, but overall I like your style (and I've had an awakening with Irish/Scottish names :) )

    PS, Sorry I didn't get to all of your girl names :)

    Names I like because they're simple and easy to recognize and spell:

    Lane — although it's also used as a feminine name

    Matthew

    Noah — may be too popular just now

    Nolan

    Oliver

    Oscar — a very masculine name

    Owen — a really good Welsh name

    Paul

    Patrick

    Reed

    Reese — although borne by a female actress, Reese Witherspoon

    Rowan

    Ryan

    Spencer

    Vincent — recognized as a saint's name

    Wilbur — easily misspelled with an 'e'. Airplane inventor Wilbur Wright

    Zachary

    Names I like less. Irish names are great, but if they're not familiar to Americans, they'd be a problem, especially if they require accent marks. The other names have some strong negative associations, or are unnecessarily foreign:

    Lachlann

    Leannán

    Lennox

    Levi

    Liam

    Lief — would be spelled Leif half the time

    Linden

    Linus — too well known from the Peanuts comic strip

    Lucien

    Lux — a brand of laundry detergent

    Malachi

    Micah

    Massimo — Maxim or even Maximilian would be better

    Matteo — see Matthew

    Mathias — see Matthew

    Maurice — pronounced "Morris" in many other English-speaking countries

    Mikhail — Michael would be better

    Milo

    Miles — historical Miles Standish, otherwise a butler's name

    Noble — a name hard to live up to

    Nikomedes

    Padraig

    Quillan

    Quincy

    Quinn — often given to females

    Reece

    Rórdán

    Rhys

    Rylan

    Séamus

    Séan — would be OK without the accent

    Sebastian — image of a villain in a British novel or movie

    Sylvester — name of a cartoon cat

    Shane — too-famous hero of a western movie

    Sullivan — really a surname

    Tadghan

    Teagan

    Terrence — he'd have to spell it out correctly for everybody

    Vinicius

    Zachariah — Zachary is simpler, with the same origin

    Zacharias — same

    Lucien's nice

    Milo/Miles are both great names

    Oscar's one of my very favourite names (for Wilde)

    I'd say Tadhg (pronounced like the tig in tiger) instead of Tadghan though - I know lots of Tadhgs but no Tadghans.
