We ar running out the door to go to music class, so I did not read the replies. My apologies if this has already been mentioned, but I love the name Gus, which is so old man! My cousin is named Gunnar Andreas with a German last name and he goes by Gus.

My friend's baby is named Vernon, after his grandpa. I really like Ruben/Reuben and Henry. Harry is another good one. Hal is a good nickname for either Henry or Harold.

I love Jedediah, too! I know a baby with that name, goes by Jed.

Did anyone mention Stan? I met a little baby named Stan (I think he was Stanislav rather than Stanley, though - both good!) and he was so cute.
