Keenan -- I don't love or hate Keenan. I met a boy named Keenan once (also know a couple Keaton's and a Keyan (rhymes with Ian)). It sounds somewhat adaptable... I mean, two syllables, ends with "an"...it has something very in common with all of those other billions of popular boys names (Aidan, Ethan, all of those other -ayden names...haha). It's not my style, but I don't hate it.
Shaw -- One of my old friends had this as their last name. It always reminds me of "cat" in French, which is pronounced the same way, but spelled "chat".
Abbot -- Abbot sounds like an impressive last name (wasn't there a Harry Potter character? Hannah Abbot or something? I don't know...), but I don't love it as a first name. Kind of calls for kids to start calling him "Abby"... heh
Zailor -- Whoa, this sounds extremely sci-fi. It's too out there for me, and I've actually met a girl named Saylor...and she was brilliant.
Acea -- I don't even know how to pronounce this... is it like Asa? AY-suh.... or uh-SAY-uh, or AY-see-uh... haha, I'm so confused. Too complicated for American's, I say...
Carlisle -- It's an okay name, but is unfortunately ruined by Twilight. Twilight ruined so many good names...
Shale -- Sounds like the rock...isn't it a rock? I prefer Kale, but Shale isn't horrible.
Thaddeus -- I knew a boy with this name. He went by "Thad" though. He was a great kid. I think Thaddeus is actually quite attractive. I like it.
Dorian -- It's okay... again, I don't love or hate it. I probably prefer Darian.
Calvin -- My uncle's name is Calvin ("Cal"). It always reminds me of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, the boy from that movie... I actually really love Calvin.
Deacon -- Nah, sounds like the church...like, when my dad was a pastor, they would always have "deacons meetings" and such.
Caspian -- It's okay, I prefer Caspen, but Caspian is very enchanting. Reminds me much of Prince Caspian.
Artemis -- Whoa, this is extremely feminine.... I love it...for a girl.
Bram -- It's another okay one. I definitely prefer Abram (a favorite name of mine), but Bram is a nice nickname.
Lancelot -- Reminds me SO much of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Probably too pretentious, but I love Lance.
Caian -- Like...KY-in? I think I prefer Caius, but I don't love either. Another "too hard for american eyes" one.
Dell -- Dude, your getting a dell...need I say more?
Jadiel -- Once again, I don't know how to pronounce it... Not really my style.
Lien -- Still confused with pronunciation... haha, like LEE-in, or...leen/line... haha, I'm very confused. It looks kind of Asian.
Mila -- Every time I see this name, it ALWAYS reminds me of MLIA (mylifeisaverage.com). One of my very best friends had a cat named Myla... haha
Desdemona -- This sounds slightly evil, IMO... I don't really like it, though it's pretty.
Briony -- I love Briony, though I prefer the original spelling, Bryony. One of my favorite names. I also love Bryn.
Catrione -- Love Catrione! Surprisingly know how to pronounce this one (kuh-TREEN), thanks to a book. haha, I think it's gorgeous. Very simple and stunning, but another one that would be mispronounced constantly.
Prairie -- Whoa, no way. This sounds extremely trendy...word names...ugh. Maybe a nice name for...a prairie dog or something, but not a child.
Temple -- Same said about Prairie...
Mareli -- This one sounds kind of silly to me. Kind of pretty, but just slightly goofy and funny. Not in a horribly bad way, but it's interesting..,
Dayami -- Sounds really asian or something. Which makes me wonder if it's pronounced day-AW-mee or dy-AW-mee. It's cute, but not one I would ever use personally.
Nylah -- Reminds me of nylon... I prefer Mila to Nylah.
Jazlene -- I met a girl named Jazleen once. I don't love the name, it seems like it's trying too hard to be elegant, and failing at it, but it is attractive. Better than Jazlyn.
