Appreciate the votes from everyone! The first four names seem to be in a tight competition for the favorite here. Interesting.

1. I liked it until I saw that you were pronouncing key yawn instead of key in

2. I like caius
3. Don't like
4. I liked it until you said you were pronouncing it dar ee us. Dare ee us is way way way better
5. I don't like it

Appreciate the response!
If we did choose Darius, I'd have to reflect a bit more on which pronunciation we'd use. Persian people have told me it's pronounced dar-ee-us (as in Darius the Great- the old Persian king of 5th century BC), and as far as I can tell that's how it was originally pronounced in Latin and Greek. But it does seem like most Americans pronounce it dare-ee-us, so that might be more straightforward here. It'll require a bit more reflection if we do decide to go with this name.
