Early 20th century American-sounding boys' names...!

Currently expecting DC3. Have two DSs so far, and although not yet confirmed, fully expecting DS3! So my first two are Arlo and Ted (usually known as Teddy). I like different sounding names but that go together, and although this was not deliberate (just names I liked the sound of), I think they have a feel of early 20th century American names (Arlo Guthrie, Teddy Roosevelt...). So was wondering what else might fit this theme. We are considering Cole...any ideas of similar genre boys' names welcome!

Maybe it's due a revival, and a transfer across the Atlantic op! (Maybe not.....)

(You ought to watch a few episodes of the Waltons for ideas)

I can only say Herman in a Noo Yoik accent.

Ooh Walter...

I was going to suggest Walt in the spirit of Walt Whitman, but it is just utterly associated with Walter White for me now grin.

Completely, not utterly.
