Yes, they're fine. I don't like Theodore at all though and suggest Daniel as an alternative. Much prefer Chris to Kit.

They are all lovely names. Bit of a mouthful if you say the long versions, but all have great shortened versions. (Rare to get names I like both the long and short😊).

Daniel is a loverly name too, but I don’t like Danny. And this might be inevitable given you are shortening them all.

I suggested a name starting with D because I don't like Theodore and because A, B, C...

Prefer Kit, Chris is a bit dated. Is it for a book?

A, B, C, T?

Either commit to the theme or don't bother with one at all.

After Alexander, Barnabas and Christopher, I would suggest David. Alternatives to consider would be Dominic, Donald, Dylan or Damien.

I think Kit will date quickly as it has become popular very quickly
Dominic is better than Daniel, because with only 2 syllables Dsniel is a lot shorter than the other names

If it is for a book, you could have Xavier, Yvan and Zebedee
