I love or like most of those names. I dealt with the same thing w/ Cohen. I ADORED it and was trying to get DH to come around and then I realized that it was getting a bit popularity and I liked it less. Love/like:

Asher- but not with the middle name Atlas...I think this could get popular as well...
Atticus- Again...not with Atlas as a mn
Atlas- Great original name
Beckett- nice
Bennett- Adore...my top name right now but I'm scared that it will get popular
Deacon- nice
Declan- nice
Everett- I'm loving this lately...along w/ the nn Rhett
Greyson- I like this but I've taken it off my list b/c I feel it's getting popular
Griffin- nice
Holden- nice alternative to Hayden
Hudson- LOVE but feel the same way as Asher
Jude- nice
Nolan- really like this
Thatcher- nice

My favorites are Bennett, Asher and Hudson...of the less popular options I like Atticus. I think Hudson Atlas sounds best

Just know that you could have a similar issue with some of the other names that are also on their way to popularity...

Dislike:
Asher -- Nothing wrong with it, just NMS
Atticus -- I really disliked the book it's from, and the sound of the name doesn't appeal to me either.
Finn -- It seems too short and incomplete to be a given name
Greyson -- Too soft.. it's not masculine enough
Hudson -- Nothing wrong with it, just NMS
Lachlan -- I think of Lock Ness.. and the name is awkward to say (for me anyways). I don't like the double L.
River -- This is a girl's name to me. I feel sorry for little boys with this name. Boys don't carry the softer nature names as well as girls do.
Stellan -- There's nothing wrong with it, but I think of the term "Stellar!" which makes me see the name as very dated.

Neutral (Fine on someone's else's kid, but not something I would use):
Barrett
Beckett
Bennett
Declan
Easton
Jude
Levi
Nolan
Rafferty
(I really like Raphael)
Lucian (prefer Lucius)
Thatcher
