Boys Names - Need Help!

Sorry for another name thread but I REALLY need help from people with an unbiased opinion. We are getting kind of close to our due date and want to order some fun personalized shirts for the newborn and big sister.

So DH's family are all James for the first name and just go my the middle name. Here is our list. Please be critical! I will not be offended, and let me know of any odd sounds, teasing nicknames, famous people, etc you think of.

James Macallister (called Mac)
James Finnigan (called Finn)
James Grayson (called Sonny) (DD name is Grace)
James Ryerson (called Sonny) (DH and I married in Ryerson Woods)
James Alexander (called Zander never Alex)
James Isaac (called zaac)
James Coletrane (called Cole)
James Oliver (called Ollie)
James Brody (just Brody)
James Bascom (called Baz) (after a college hall DH and I met at)
James Elijah (called Eli)
James Ellington (called Eli)
James Elliot (called Eli)

Would love your thoughts! Maybe these will even give some other uncertain mamas ideas too!

I like Brody, Coletrane, and Finnigan. Ryerson is very cool though too, and has special meaning to it. I feel like IMO, those names would be 'safe' from teasing etc. But you never know what kids will come up with to make fun of someone for ..

I like James Ryerson. You never hear of anyone called Sonny anymore, yet it's a traditional nickname.
