What are some traditional / classic boy names, with a twist? Have a large extended family of boys and looking for some inspiration!

Boys names with a twist I love:
Jasper (Although this seems to be flavour of the month at the moment)
I went for safer names though despite adoring the names above.

Mitchell, Nicholas, Jackson, Harrison, Alexander, Xavier all used in my family.....other names really don't take my fancy, some of them maybe a bit to extreme.
What do you think of Lincoln, Alby, Dougie ??
Posted 24 February 2013 - 03:38 PM
Lincoln is good.
Alby is great but only as NN eg to Albert or Albin.
Dougie is good but only as NN to Dougal/Dougald.
Posted 24 February 2013 - 04:41 PM
Not fond of Lincoln, do like Linden, Levi, or Liam.
Dougie feels very NNish, possibly for Dougal, Dugan, or Douglas.
Alby - NN for Albus, Albin, or Albert? I like Alastair/Alaric/Alan/Alasdair as well.
