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!

And all the minerals, atoms and stuff, too.

Adamantio! Carbon, Iron or Ferrum, Gold,

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.
