These names are usable...
Keenan - prefer the Irish Cianan
I don't like...
Eiam - I am, Ian with a twist, who knows?
Heston -Actor Charlton Heston was Moses in the Ten Commandments film and he was in Ben-Hur (good, noble Heston). Alas, I also remember him brandishing a rifle over his head as a leader in the gun movement and railing against the Democrats about his right to hear harms and they would only succeed in taking away those rights from "my cold, dead hands" (bad, scary Heston).
Hasting - hasty pudding? Hastings helped Sherlock Holmes investigate.
Byram - always be mistaken for Byron
Ahmet - only if you have Muslim/Arabic heritage.
Amon/Ammon - only if you like Egyptian sun gods.All the best,

Asher -- Lovely. Excellent.
Kollin -- Spelling looks a little tacky.
Keegan -- Totally useable. Not my swag.
Kean -- Love love love it. Excellent choice.
Keenan -- and Kel! Still think it's useable.
August -- Charming. Totally useable and solid and excellent.
Hiram -- Hiram Lodge. Very fuddy and duddy. Useable I suppose, but it's extra stuffy with a side of curmudgeon.
Abram -- Perfectly useable and lovely.
Ahmet -- I like it. I like it a lot. Solid choice.
Amon -- Eh. Not a fan. Looks off.
Ruben -- No fanks.
Josiah -- Useable, but it's a little not awesome to me.
Heston -- Perfectly useable and lovely.
Isham -- Weird but cool. I like it.
Zacharias -- A little elaborate. Useable, Zack's a totally cool nickname that brings it down to earth.
Joah -- Eh. No fanks.
Ammon -- Same as Amon. I'd skip.
Byram -- A little stuffier than Hiram.
Marek -- Cool. I like it.
Hasting -- Hasty. Eh.
Eiam -- Pronunciation? I'm not sure.
Hendrick -- Ooh! I like this! I like the name Hendrix but I don't wish to recall Jimi. This is a nice alternative. Nice.
