Just for fun - 1 syllable boys names

I have a son named Clark, and if I were to have another son I would like to name him Dean (if I can get DH on board). So it appears I like surnames-turned-given names that are 1 syllable for boys.

What other names can you come up with that fit that criteria?

Bonus points if your name idea has educational and/or ecclesiastical connotations (even if it's a stretch)!

Some totally random ones:

Brett

Brent

Beau

Kent

Keith

Joss

Burt (I mean, yes it's an old name, but still!)

Howe/ Howey

Loius/ Lewis

Finn

Colt

Lyle (ditto as Burt)

Van

Vaughn

Gray/ Grey

Lee/ Leigh/ Li

 

That's all I've got tonight!

I really like Kent but would never use it (Clark and Kent... yea...)

My grandpa was Albert who went by Bert so hey, I can definitely see that one!

Really like Beau - it's on my short list for (hypothetical) future babies

I've always liked Gray/Grey, but with the whole "50 Shades" thing I wouldn't use it anytime soon

Just came across the idea of Vaughn as a FN earlier tonight and really like it, but then again I was a huge Alias fan so perhaps that's not terribly surprising

 

Great list! Anyone have more ideas?
