    I actually went to high school with a Garrison and no one ever called him Gary. He went exclusively by his full name, so I wouldn't cut Garrison for that reason alone.

    I like Griffin nn Fin a lot. You might consider Dylan (for its meaning "son of the sea"), Kai (Hawaiian, meaning "sea"), Morgan ("sea"), Ronan ("little seal" which connects to the sea and Navy seals), Calder ("rocky water"), or Zale ("strength of the sea").

    There is a boy in my son's ice hockey class named Gannon. It kind of reminds me of Garrison. Also I know another little boy bamed Garrison Henry whose nickname is Hank.

    I recommend finding a name you like, then searching for a military connotation. If it's a general, keep telling him all the interesting things you learned about that general. Then, later, suggest the name. Any name can be military, almost...

    Thank you so much for all the suggestions!
    Some I've already tried and didn't work like:
    Leon
    Walker
    Sullivan
    Griffin/Griffith
    Knox

    Some have family references that render them unusable:
    Remington
    Ethan
    Rubicon (basically my last name)
    Samuel
    Tucker

    Out of what's left we like:
    Boone!
    Marshall (maybe)
    Carson (grandmother's maiden name)
    Patton (I'm actually related to general Patton closely! And it's a way to honor my cousin Patrick)

    I also really love the references to water because we both come from a small beach/tourist town and the water is central to everything, buttt I don't really care for any of the boy water names
