Hello, Alexander.

You asked if the names on your list can be given to the children of Christians.

When I was a student (prior to the 1983 Code of Canon Law [for the Western/Latin Church]), I often heard that the Catholic Church forbade the giving of any name in Baptism except the name of a saint (or our Savior [e.g., Jesus, Salvatore] or a religious "mystery" [e.g., Concepcion/Assumpta]).
The Church wanted each child to have at least one heroic person as a role model and intercessor.

However, the 1983 Code has only this to say:
"Canon 855 -- Parents, sponsors, and parish priests are to take care that a name is not given which is foreign to Christian sentiment."

I suggest that you check your list, Alexander, to see if you have any names that are "foreign to Christian sentiment."
Maybe someone will offer an opinion besides my own, which is:
(1) Any name that is trivial or frivolous or in poor taste, or any name that could be used by other children to mock the child should not be given.
(2) If a name other than a saint's is given first, then a second name according to the old law (saint, Savior, mystery) should be given, to remind the child forever that he/she is a Christian.

God bless you.
