    What about Silas? It is a short form of Silvanus (Latin). Roman name derived from Latin silva "wood, forest". Silvanus was the Roman god of forests.
    Or Cyril?

    I still think Dean is perfect for you. I also like Victor and Archer.

    Where did you find the meanings you listed?

    Some of them sound a little weird to me.

    For example Adler is the German word for eagle, it's just the translation (by the way, it's not a first name in Germany, it's a surname though, often Jewish). I don't know where "Resembling a soaring eagle" should come from.

    Same with "Braun", another German word and surname, German word for "Brown". It's just a color, i don't know why it should mean strong or anything related.
