Running out of time! What name is similar to Desmond?

Aaaaah, hardly any time left at all and we have no name for our baby boy! DH dislikes every.single.name on the planet *except* for Desmond, which is the name of my BFF's son, so we definitely can't use it. SO, please please tell me, what is a name *like* Desmond - uniqueish, but not unheard of, nothing super trendy (we are old parents, LOL). Help, help, help, please!!

I love Edmond. He is the character in the lion the witch and the wardrobe (CS Lewis) that starts out kind of mean but is transformed in the story. It's a great name.
