    Luther Jeremiah 'Luthe' for short.

    Luther sounds so handsome. And strong. And also because of Martin Luther-King. So that would be great with a name similar to him. And Jeremiah is cute, strong and so unique. If Jeremiah was a first name, Jerry would be such a cute nickname.


    Cyrus Oliver.

    I've always loved Cyrus, though I wouldn't use it. It sounds really handsome, masculine and strong on a man, but for a kid it would also be cute. And Oliver is a bit overused nowadays, but it is still so smart and handsome.


    Harvey Amos.

    I LOVE Amos, and Harvey. Amos is so sweet, and cute. And Harvey is just... lovely.


    Selina Minnie.

    Selina's nice and cute, and Elli or Ella is such a cute nickname. I also like its connection with the goddess of the moon (greek I think?). Minnie is sweet, but I'd prefer it to be Hermione, Minnie as a nickname, but Hermione is too 'famous' you could say, to be used.


    Leta Dahlia.

    Don't especially like most of them. Dahlia's cute, but too unusual. Leta is sweet though.

    So... Luthe, Cyrus, Harvey, Elli and Leta. Cute.
