Caleb and Everett are two of my favorite names, so they definitely get my vote. The only other name that came to mind was Corbin, but that might rhyme a bit too much with your last name. I think it sounds ok, but you may not like it. Good luck!
Cormac Wilder is a really cool name. I wouldn't normally consider Cormac, but paired with Wilder, it makes me think of a dashing, handsome, rustic, rancher with really great style and good manners :)
I like Emmett Wilder Allison and Garrett Wilder Allison. I think Garrett or another consanent name (Cormac, Graham) sounds better with Allison than a vowel name.
Lots of good ideas for first names, guys! I think we have whittled down the first names to these 5....
his middle name will be Wilder unless we name him Trevor, then it would be Cole.
What do you think?
Caden Allison is much too rhymy. Plus, Caden is really trendy compared to your other choices. Caleb and Seth are my favs from your list. Although I like Garrett, I'm not big on Garrett Wilder. Trevor just sounds old to me.

Emmett Wilder Allison (Emmett Allison) and Garrett Wilder Allison (Garrett Allison) sound great to me. My favorite from your list is Everett Wilder Allison (Everett Allison). I can picture an outdoor adventurous kind of guy as well as a scholar with that name.
Other names, I like with your middle name-last name combination are:
Rhett Wilder Allison (Rhett Aliison) - this give me the same associations as Everett - rugged and scholarly
Trent Wilder Allison (Trent Allison) - I get more of an athletic and preppy feel from this name
I like Emmett the best with Wilder.
What about Gavin Wilder Allison? Does Gavin Allison seem too close to a rhyme?
Starting to steer away from Caleb.....we feel it is a little too preppy.
