Southerners seem to like to combine two names as one. Examples: Samantha Jo, Hannah Marie, or Billy Ray.
Location names: These are names of Southern cities or states. Examples: Jackson, Alexandria, Georgia, Austin, or Virginia.
Nature names: Often Southern names are inspired by the landscape. Examples: Brooke, Jasmine, Forrest, Camellia, Lane or Rose.
Gender neutral names: These names rank as some of the most popular names chosen. Examples: Taylor, Madison, Leslie or Ashley.
Personality names: These names are generally how the parent wants the child to be perceived. Examples: Hunter, Beau, Grace or Christian.
Religious names: The South is greatly influenced by the Bible. Examples: Joshua, Michael, Abigail, Sarah, Faith, Trinity and Elizabeth.
Another common practice among the South is to give children nicknames. William might be the birth name but the person will inevitably be called “Billy.” The nickname “Bubba” also seems to be a common nickname for males and “Sissy” for females no matter what the birth name is.
hope this helps!

I love Austin and Levi
You could go with something like Michael and be tradtional.
William nn Billy
Or if you want to be original call him something like
Jacob Huckleberry and nickname him Huck.
Sorry I live in the UK so not very good at southern sounding names but good luck :)
