Vintage, Underused boy names with good nickname potential...

Can you berries suggest some good classic boys names, preferably not in the Top 300ish, that sound fresh and have good nickname possibilities? Thanks!

[name]Frederick[/name] and [name]Alfred[/name] are two of my favorites. I like the nickname, [name]Freddie[/name], that can be derived from both of these. I also really like [name]Arthur[/name]. It has some good nickname potential, [name]Art[/name], [name]Artie[/name]. Here’s a few others:
