Drop 2 Add 1 - Boys

I didn't see this one for boys, so I thought I'd make one to (almost) mark the one-year anniversary for the girls' version - and because we just started a new girls' list!  I'll start with a shorter, more randomized list.

August, Aydan, Brandon, Chace, Clarence, Dallas, Edgar, Finn, Grant, Issac, Jakob ,Javier, Javon, Julien, Kameron, Kasey, Kash, Keshawn, Layne, Marley, Miles, Rex, Roberto, Savion, Timothy, Troy, Ty, Xzavier, Zachariah, Zion
