A Three-Syllable Name

Sometimes names in a story are more significant than at other times. Sometimes you put a lot of effort into finding a name that's just right.

Right now I'm working on a story and I have it in my head that I need a three-syllable name for a male character. I'm also trying to find a name that's not always shortened, i.e. Nicholas almost always becomes Nick, but Jeremy often stays Jeremy.

Thus far I have:
Christopher
Harrison
Elias
Elijah
Theodore
Sebastian
Archibald
Isaiah
Edison
Gregory
Oliver
Nathaniel
Emerson

Can you help me think of others?

anything like Harrison--ending in
-son (Jameson etc.)
Xavier

And I'm tapped for the moment. I'm really interested to see why a three syllable name is important though.
