I chose Nathan. I am not really sure why, but Preston and Gavin just aren't my style.

Nathan is my favorite. Gavin is nice, but I don't like it as much. Preston is too preppy sounding and it's more of a last name.

Definitely Nathan. But I prefer it as a nickname for Nathaniel.

Gavin is NMS and Preston is too much of a last name....

Definitley Nathan. Preston sounds snob-ish and Gavin sounds childish to me for some reason.

Preston is not my style at all. Nathan has a negative connotation with it because of DF's old best friend. But I love love love Gavin.

Nathan is my favorite! I love the nn Nate. Preston sounds snotty to me and reminds me of Britney Spears, and Gavin is ok but I prefer Nathan.

Gavin.

Nathan is too close to Nolan and Preston is a little too preppy. Just my opinion of course.

Preston sounds a bit snoobish for my taste. I like both Nathan and Gavin but if I had to choose it would be Gavin.

I do not care for the name Nathan, just my opinion.
I have always liked your nameing style, what happened to the Ryder, Hudson, etc. names...
By the way I do not think that Preston sounds snpbby....
Good Luck Melissa!!
