After reading the post about Cohen possibly getting super popular we had a name post on our DDC and 3 of us (me included) have Cohen as our boy name and all of a sudden Cohen is sounding less and less appealing.
Opinions on these?

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
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
Holden- nice alternative to Hayden Hudson- LOVE but feel the same way as Asher
Nolan- really like this
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...
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):
Rafferty (I really like Raphael)
Lucian (prefer Lucius)
I really like Cohen, i dont think its as popular in the real world as it is on JM many of your names are nice.
Asher-nms but a good name
Atticus-no, i know a lot of people like this name but i really dont as of yet
Atlas-its ok, there are better names
Dexter-i like it but i think i like it cause i like the show
Greyson its very nice, i like it a lot
Griffin-love it, its the name we have picked for a boy
Lachlan-ok, there are much better
Lucian-i like other variations more
Rafferty-is the nn Raffe? I like Raffe
Soren-very scandinavian, its nice.
Stellan no cause it reminds me od the girl name stella
