This or that boys' names A-Z?

The following names are my favourite boys’ names for each letter of the alphabet. Just choose your favourite from each pair!

August or Andrew

Brandon or Benedict

Castiel (kass-tee-EL) or Cole

Dorian or Dexter

Emerson or Eoin (O-wən)

Fabian (FAY-bee-ən) or Finn

Griffin or Gethin (GETH-ən)

Hamish (HAY-mish) or Harrison

Ianto (YAHN-to) or Ignatius (ig-NAYSH-əss)

Jasper or Jackson

Kyle or Killian

Lucien (LOOSH-ən) or Lucas

Matthew or Mortimer

Nestor or Nathan

Oliver or Octavian (ok-TAY-vee-ən)

Phoenix or Parker

Quinn or Qhorin (KOH-rən)

Rory or Robin

Samuel or Spencer

Thomas or Theodore

Uri or Uriel

Valerian (və-LEER-ree-ən) or Victor

William or West

Xavier or Xander

Yale or Yuri

Zachary or Zoran

BQ: What would you name triplet boys (first and middle names) using only the names listed above?

Update:

@Sam - Actually, every one of them are names. The closest things to non-names up there are Qhorin (which is from a book) and West. So that's two at most, which is nowhere near half. Learn to count.

Update 2:

@Teri - Please choose your favourite for all the pairs! And Dorian* was actually invented by Oscar Wilde for the Picture of Dorian Gray, so it is far from feminine :)

    ~ Xavier or Xander << Xavier! <3 I love both though ^.^

    ~ Yale or Yuri << Yale. I LOVE Yuri, but it's a not so desirable anime term which pretty much killed the name for me :/ Though it's not really used in Japan, in other countries (my country, the USA, included) the term "yuri" refers to often quite R-rated lesbian anime and manga. It's more the R-rated part that's the problem for me, but all around it's not really something I'd use. It's super cute though, and I do love it. *Sigh* I really wish it was usable =(

    ~ Zachary or Zoran << Zachary

    =)

    UPDATE: Forgot the BQ! It's really hard to choose just three firsts and middles (I love a lot of these), but:

    Gethin Xavier

    Pheonix Matthew

    Robin Theodore

    I'm cheating a bit ;D and picking a GP combo from this list as well:

    Yuri Griffin <3
