  1. Hawthorne and Collingwood just sounds like surnames used as first names like Bennett and Campbell… I actually prefer Hawthorne to both of them! Pomeroy is almost too cute to be a real name, and Xenophon is cool… Manton and Icie are intriguing, but I would never consider them. Manton because it reminds me of Manon which is beautiful, and Icie because she sounds icy and cold… I think of an icicle piercing me of all things. XD
    I don’t care much for the rest of them…

  2. Poor “Charlie”. Can you imagine?

    I would consider Hawthorne or Macy as names. Icie looks like it should be a NN.
