Help me pick an honor name


My father passed away in July 2020 and I’d love to somehow honor him by naming our little boy after him. However, I’m struggling to find any names I love and would appreciate any help!

My dad’s name was Gary Lee. I’m not particularly a fan of either of those names, nor do I care for Gray, Grayson. I haven’t really played around with the name Lee, but I’m sure there are options.

My dad had fire red hair and was nicknamed “Red,” so I am also willing to consider names meaning “red” or “fire.”

One last thing to consider: we have an incredibly long/hard to pronounce Italian last name and prefer more traditional names that can be shortened (Joseph/Joe, Nicholas/Nick).
