    Favorite "Western" names for boys?

    I've been super into Western baby names lately - rugged names for cowboys and lumberjacks, with some overlap from Deep South naming traditions. So far, I really like:

    Wyatt
    Corbin
    Zacharias
    Bronson
    Clint
    Tex
    Carson
    Jesse

    There are some that I should like, in theory, but sound too dated to me. Does anyone have any favorite names in this category that I've missed? I really want to redo my boys list, and need some outside inspiration! Thanks in advance!

    Oh wow, I think my favorites would have to be Maverick, Sawyer, and Destry. They all give me a hipster-y, western, cowboy vibe!

    I've always loved Zane. It feels pretty cowboyish to me. There's also Booker, Boone, and Grayson, and even Judson, Jackson, or Jax, which all seem to have a semi cowboy vibe. Zane's my favorite, though.
