Separate names with a comma.

I have an idea on some of them but would like some help trying to figure out what species they are.
Here are some more pictures. Some are close ups of the previous.
Are we not men? We are Devo!
You are a flood of pix of various crassulaceae.
Aeonium, Echeveria and X Graptoveria.
There are even a couple of Aloe thrown in to stir things up.
No numbers or names to aid in sorting them out.
None of them are rare, so ID should be fairly easy for you.
1) kinda looks like Blushing beauties
2) graptopetalum sp?
3) Aloe type
4) Black Rose; Aeonium "Schwartzkopf"
1) Black Rose; Aeonium "Schwartzkopf"
2) Pin Wheel; Aeonium haworthii
3) Pin Wheel; Aeonium haworthii
4) graptopetalum sp?
5) echeveria sp?
1 - could be "blushing beauties" or could be another of the Aeonium. Looks very much like the pups that my big Aoeniums put off.
3 - Aloe of some sort. It looks like it might be happier in the ground, as opposed to that pot.
4 - Aeonium "Schwartzkoph"
5 - another Aloe. If you want it to stop turning red, get it into some bright shade.
Get all of those plants out of their pots!!! You're in SoCal, they can go in the ground. Or at least, repot the poor things with some proper cactus soil in larger pots. And the grapto in Post One should not be living in terra-cotta unless it has many and copious drainage holes. Otherwise you run the risk of root-rot.
I thought Blushing Beauties are Aeonium?
That's probably true - I just tend to forget the cultivar names. I look at them and go "oh, it's aeonium" and don't really tend to retain more than that.
Thanks for the imput. I would like to put them in the ground or in larger containers if I had more space. As it is now I have too many pants and need to get rid of some of them.
Just have to say that your Aeonium "Schwartzkopf" is absolutely stunning! Well done.
The correct name is Aeonium arboreum 'Zwartkop'. The cultivar is of Dutch origin not German. It is not named for the American general either.
The other Aeonium with blue leaves is Aeonium haworthii.
The white leafed Echeveria appears to be Echeveria imbricata.
What are your ideas on the rest of them?
"Blushing beauties"? That's obviously made up. Its an Aeonium hybrid.
The other is a Graptopetalum paraguayense X Sedum nussbaumerianum hybrid. Not sure if it has a cultivar name.
