Family names for our boy

Aisling and I are expecting a baby boy in April. Our first, Carter, was named after Aisling's side of the family (Grandma's maiden name). Now it's my turn to come up with a name (or at least propose something that Ais doesn't veto.) So I was looking through names in on my side of the family from Family Search. Here's a big list of male names I found starting with myself and siblings, then going back several generation. These lists aren't comprehensive by any means, so I'm sorry to the many people I missed.

Personal favorites....Theodorn, Mahlon, Drake, Wilmont, Milton, VanCannon, Dunbar. I joke about naming our boy after these guys but Aisling doesn't appreciate it much.

I like Bentley ;D

You should name him Byron. That wouldn't be confusing at all!

Don't forget the Nicholls middle name Sarcott! Aunt Betty HATES that name.

Ivins is the spelling for Ivins :) ---like the city in Southern Utah that's named after our Great-great cousin. (Technically, great-great grandmother's half brother.)
