  1. My favorites are Helix and Xavi, although the former may just be the biology nerd in me talking.

  4. I'm sorry to say, but the names you listed are not Dutch at all.
    Some are English from origin and some are fantasy names.
    I'm Dutch myself, but have been brought up trilangual(Dutch-English-German).
    Only the name Manouk might have been Dutch.
    Rikus(you placed it under female names) is actually a boysname meaning something like Rick/Rich.

    1. These names were all found in recent Dutch birth announcements -- by labeling them "Dutch" I simply mean they were used on Dutch babies. I should have made that more obvious!
