bored, don't mind honest opinions! Expecting DC2 in November, DS is called Ethan, our surname is Loy (crap to match most names to). If a girl middle name will be Rae, if a boy middle name will be either Arthur or Edward (all for family reasons)...
BOYS Angus Arthur Caleb Eli Rafe Sebastian Talisker
Angus - Don't like. Arthur - I like Artie as a nn. Caleb - Sounds a bit common to me. Eli - don't mind, although makes me think of an old man. Rafe - Love Sebastian - Top of my boys list, although I've come across quite a few LO's this year and last. Talisker - Never heard this before. Don't like the way it sounds though.
Esther - Prefer Estelle. Love Seren. Imogen - I like this, but I've heard of loads this year. Might be that Imogen Thomas has killed that trend though. Kate - Love. Would you use Catherine? Or Kathryn/ine River - I think this is a boys name. Xanthe - makes me think of cheap Greek holidays.
I like Arthur and Angus best by far. Sebastian is ok (but the initials would be SAL, could you risk Sally as a nn?). Not keen on Caleb, Rafe or Eli. And I would drink Talisker too.
I think Imogen is lovely, but there are quite a few about. Esther is OK, as is Kate (I see it as a nn). I don't like Xanthe myself, but think it's a perfectly good name. River is completely Doctor Who right now (how old is DS1, BTW?)
