Names that are common nouns

Help, F-list!
I've been searching for a name that's also a common noun...you know, like Bob. Or Matt. But a nicer name, like River. But not River, that's goofy.

Can you guys blast me with all the word-names you can think of? (They don't actually have to be nouns. Sly is a good one.)

ETA: Wow, these are great! I had tried to search online for a list like this but come up with a lot of nothin'. I think I may have spotted the name I want...but feel free to keep adding if inspiration moves you!

My daughter went to school with a boy named Sailor.

Kale/Cale is the only one I can think of that hasn't been said (I quickly scanned all the choices so I don't think so.)

LOL! I love names. I have limitless names.

When trying to pick my son's name, I handed stupid spouse-type person a four-page list...

Leif would work as a homophone.
You could go for place names too. There are plenty of those.

Good luck :).

In my internet search for noun-names I discovered Joss Whedon as being someone infamous for using them...so I guess I'm in good company ;-)

And all the minerals, atoms and stuff, too.

Swear just to swear, my dad wanted to call me Ohmega Ampere...Think Ohms and Amps. He loved Electrical Engineering, but luckily I got my own semi-unique but-still-heard-of-family name.
