Which name?

I’m looking for input! A character in the book I’m currently writing — the sixth in my Penhallow Dynasty series — needs a good first name. He’s an icky smarmy duke (but don’t worry, he’ll get what’s coming to him). What is your #1 choice?

By the way, I bet it would be extremely difficult to say “Loch Ness Monster ladles” three times fast. ;)
