Cove sounds a little odd to me a a name. Don't get me wrong: different is cool. But this one, not so much. Arbor sounds like it wold be a girl's name to me. Of course, it's a noun and is technically unisex; but it has a feminine sound to it.

I like Arbor in theory; might prefer Archer in reality. With Cove, though, I keep thinking of all of these Restoration romance novels I've read where "cove" means that a guy is kind of shady.

Cove is slightly odd to me as a human name.
