I'm really into old baby names. And since I found out I'm having identical twin boys this week I've been looking for unique but not weird boys names.

My list so far:
Eric
Trevor
Albert
Floyd
Reggie
Darius
Dexter
Russell
Sheldon
Edison
Porter

Please suggest any you think I'll like!

Herbert
Francis
Harold

Lots of your names I'd say are quite "young" - I can't imagine many people have a grandfather called Sheldon or Dexter.
