Thought of the day

Think of as many temporally-based names as you can. These have to be names that you can think of actual people having, not just things that "could be" a name. Here's all of the names my coworkers and I could think up:

April, May, June, Summer, Autumn, Dawn, Sunrise, Sunset, Christmas (OK, I can only think of one example of this, but still, it counts), and Thursday (this one is kinda cheating).

Notice something they have in common? They're all female names. Can you think of any temporal names which are male? (And people actually have to have this name for it to count.) The only one I can think of is the knight January in one of the Canterbury Tales (damned if I can remember which one), but that's iffy at best.
