Maximus (I know, a lot of syllables - but how can you get any more masculine than Russell Crowe in Gladiator?).  You could always call him "Max" for short when calling on...

Also Thor, Rufus, Tonka, Diesel, Ben, Christian, Kuma, Slater...

How about Gwydyon?  It's the name of the Welsh god of war. 

You say it like Gideon, but with the W. 

Gideon's good, too, come to think of it.

Well my husband is pulling for Khan...I don't think it is unique enough.  <rubbing my hands together> I will have to figure SOME way to change his mind...

Goliath got his name from my wife .... I was shooting for Tiny or Fluffy or Spot .... But I got over-ruled :-(

I still think that the sissy/small dog names would have suited his personality better!

Yea I had a list that included some "little" names, speck, tiny, knibblet but my husband is pretty set on Khan (with the history behind the mastiff and all). I kinda like Schatzi too (German for sweetheart).  My step-daughters liked the "little" names too.  So who knows...the world will have to wait for the unveiling!

The verdict is in...Boudreaux .  My husband is an LSU fan and I saw that name and thought <gasp> "that would be cool!"  He liked it!  I asked him if he liked it as much as Khan...he said yea.  So we are picking Boudreaux!  ;D

I was also looking for a perfect name for our future female AM.  I found a wonderful website  www.thinkbabyn ames.com.   What you can do is find a name by meaning and sex.  So for example,  If you want aboys names  meaning "gentle"  that's what you enter.  All names that mean gentle will come up.  They are derived from German, French, Celtic, Latin; everything.  Some are very different others you hear all of the time. 
As I mentioned in your other post, we chose "Willa Majesta"  Willa meaning resolute protector, and Majesta meaning royal, bearing dignity.
It's been great fun finding a name.  And it means more knowing there is some real meaning behind it.

ENJOY!
