Robert, Benedict, Alex? All seem to have a similar feel to your first three.

Matthew's got to be due a revival. I work in a business full of Matthews.

I like Isaac and Ethan best from your list. Also:

I like Ethan and Brody.

Oliver, Finley and Max are so overused imo Will probably sound dated soon as they fall out of fashion

I love Ethan and Oliver and Isaac

You have a really great list. Other ideas (but stick with your own as they are more classic):
Eli, Ellis, Rex, Miles/Milo

Finn - too popular
Max - too popular
Matthew - dull
Isaac - ok
Francis - ok
Oliver - meh
Levi - ok
Brody - no. Makes me think of Chief Brody.
Eamon - makes me think of Eamonn Holmes!
Ethan - ok
Fraser - dad’s Army.

Finn - lovely. And not too popular compared with Finlay
Max - nice but v popular
Matthew - I think it's a bit wet sounding
Isaac - I dislike this personally but I know people like it, my dislike for it is irrational
Francis - not keen
Oliver - nice but popular.
Levi - no. Too American sounding now
Brody - really dislike
Eamon - not keen
Ethan - ok
Fraser - I like this. All the Frasers I know are lovely.

Finn and Fraser are my favourites, but I also like Max, Matthew, Isaac, Oliver and Eamon.

I love Max, Oliver, Levi and Ethan

I have a Max - I don't find it too popular. Suits him but then I'm biased.

I have an Oliver. He’s almost 17. Despite it being really popular we only know a few others. He has a brother called Ethan.

Most of your names are lovely to be honest op. If I was having a boy now I would name him Oscar smile

Hard as it is, I would try and get that list down to maybe 5 and then go from there. Good luckflowers

Matthew. Classic name, suits all ages and stages. Matt is a good shortening.
