Middle Name Help!

I am pregnant with baby boy #2.  Baby #1 is named Finnegan Eric, but we call him Iggy for short.  Baby #2's first name is going to be Huckleberry-unusual, but hey we're going with a literary theme with the kid's names... and are going to/already call him Huck.  The original name we had in mind for him was Lawrence Huckleberry.  But I've since decided I don't like Lawrence (I don't want him to be called Larry!), and it seems silly to me to have his middle name be what we plan on calling him.  So I want the first name to be Huckleberry.  But don't know what to do for a middle name... HELP!!  The last name will be Peterson.

We're (which means to say I) am still working on it... my husband thinks since we settled on a name that I've grown to dislike that he doesn't have to help, men, though he did say he liked Louis...  but I don't know... Lou Peterson sounds like a used car salesman to me!  I know I'm being SUPER picky, but it is the kid's name!
I'm kind of leaning towards something more traditional for the middle name because Huckleberry is so out there... unfortunately our grandparents/fathers offer some rather slim pickings...  Howard, George, Grove, Ernest, Leo, Leslie, Michael, Raymond, and Grady... none of which I'm very crazy about...  I just don't know...
