I need a name for a villain?

I'm writing a book and I need a name for a villain. So the plot is that a catastrophic event has turned the the earth into a post apocalyptic world. The main character, Jason, is in a group of fighters. The villain was a good man with a family until his group was attacked by Jason's group. The man's family is killed and the man's head is injured by Jason, which causes the man to lose all his morals, emotions, and reasoning. He comes back a year later as a villain to get revenge at all costs. He does not care about killing people or doing horrible things. He is in his mid-forties, has buzz cut dark and graying hair, is well built, a good fighter, clever, smart, determined, he has a military like appearance, and a scar stretching from his left eye to just over his left ear from when he was shot. I want a real name for him, not a super villain name. I also want the name to be somewhat menacing. It can be something that sounds like a first or last name. You can suggest multiple names. Anything helps. Thanks!

    Well, the first thing that happens to come to mind would be Cort, or something of the likes. Something short.
