They all feel kind of sophisticated/aristocratic to me! Like they would all be polite, well-educated, and honestly wealthy gentleman 😉
Elliot sounds the most “sweet” to me and probably has the least strong associations.

Alton sounds like a cultured and sophisticated man.
Elliot makes me think of E.T.
Roland makes me think of rollin’

@AmyJCardiff: I do not mind seemingly pretentious names. I see them as names someone can grow into.
Names that bother me are nicknames used as full first names like Frankie or Benji.

You will have to forgive me, but this is exactly what comes to mind when I think of these names
Elliot: A kid who starts wearing tweed blazers with suede elbow patches by three. Every Saturday is spent playing in piano recitals and he is very competitive with a little Asian girl who happens to be protege.
Roland: Recently divoriced, 55 year old African-Man who owns a succesful pawn shop, has an affinity for the color purple and is learning how to get his proverbial “groove back.”
Alton: The name of a richie guy who rapes some poor girl at a party in a Lifetime movie.
That said: how about Henry or Benjamin?

@sept22insf: Sorry if you like Elliott but the first thing I that popped into my head was Brendan Fraser’s character in that movie Bedazzled. PffffttHAHAHA now I’m thinking of that part when he realised the devil had turned him into a Columbian druglord 😛 Sorry..!

I tried to edit my post, but my phone is idiotic. I naturally meant “African-American” man. I think the Alton thing is from the movie Clueless where the character Elton/Alton very neary sexually attacks the character Cher.
