All good names and fine with Grace.

My pick is Dominic, and coming next I can't separate Lloyd, Patrick and Rafael!

In order:

Dominic - Great name. Adore this name, but while I like Nic/Nick as short form Dom doesn't do much for me.
Rafael - Love this, though while Rafael simplifies the Rafe nickname I might give the slight edge to the Raphael spelling.
Patrick - I love the name but ranked third because I can't think of a good nick.
Vincent and Victor - Tied. Like both.
Lloyd - I don't really like Lloyd, I'd prefer Levi or Wyatt or something.

Lloyd is ok. I don't mind Raphael. The rest are nms.

Vincent
Rafael

Dominic or Patrick

Wow, you ask hard questions OP.   Mighty hard to pick from that great list.   The only name I would discount is Victor.   Even though you can say the same about all the others except Lloyd maybe Dominic sounds on the religious side with Grace, but I'm really just trying to rank them.

The sibset Grace and Lloyd is kinda nice with both being monosyllabics.

Apart from that I'm loving Raphael (like this) with Grace.   OK, here goes:

Raphael
Lloyd
Patrick
Dominic
Vincent
Victor

Vincent or Rafael I really like, the others are ok. I think Lloyd and Victor are a different sort of name to the rest. The rest are modern or classic, Lloyd and Victor are old school, like the male equivalent of all the old lady chic names that are fashionable for girls now. Not that that's a bad thing anyway.

I love Dominic, and Vincent and Raphael are lovely too. Patrick is nice, not keen on the others though.

#19 mumma_ox

Posted 04 December 2012 - 05:18 AM

Lloyd.  Love it.  I would have shortlisted it for my little one only that I have a pet already named Lloyd.

#20 kerilyntaryn

Posted 04 December 2012 - 10:22 AM

Patrick
Dominic

#21 MissLouise

Posted 04 December 2012 - 12:07 PM

Thanks everyone!  Seems Dominic is pretty well liked and Lloyd is divisive!

Bellefin, your comments are spot on - Lloyd and Victor are actually grandfather and great grandfathers names, the rest are just ones I like!

#22 tres-chic

Posted 04 December 2012 - 12:11 PM

I absolutely love Dominic, Vincent & Patrick.

I like Lloyd for a MN.
