  Benjamin Travis Laney, Jr. » Biographies of Arkansas's Governors » Exhibits » Old State House
Laney, born at Cooterneck in Ouachita County in 1896, was one of eleven children.
Laney faced another challenge in the 1947 session in the form of the self-styled "economic bloc," a group of fiscal conservatives from rural districts who tended to oppose any measure which did not directly benefit their constituents.
Laney joined the forces opposed to federal civil rights legislation and figured prominently in the third party movement known as the "Dixiecrats," serving for a time as their chairman.

 Traveler's Guide to Arkansas | Governors of Arkansas Portrait Gallery | State | 1917-1933
Laney owned a drugstore in Conway, Arkansas, traded in farm real estate and entered the oil business when oil was discovered on his family farm near Camden, Arkansas.
In his first campaign, Laney called for “efficiency, economy and consolidation” in state government; he followed through by promoting the ultimately adopted Revenue Stabilization Act which proved to be his greatest achievement.
Laney was a consistent supporter of racial segregation and eventually became identified with the “Dixiecrat” states’ rights movement but, notably, during Laney’s administration the University of Arkansas became the first historically white southern public university to admit African-American students.

I think Travis, Owen, Ian, Miles (please don't girlify it by inserting a Y in the middle!) are all strong names, too.
Travis or Miles would be good solid options; Oscar or Wyatt would be the least conventional picks.
Ryan, Evan and COllin (is this misspelled purposely?) are the opposite of edgy--my mind's eye sees a mama's boy ripe for the bullying of school kids...same with Travis, Owen, Myles (another apparent misspelling), and Ian.

 Bush Watch
After being introduced by Democrat Speaker of the House Pete Laney, Bush referred to the chamber as 'a place where Democrats have the majority, Republicans and Democrats have worked together to do what is right for the people we represent.
Inside, Gonzales was telling the judge and the lawyers on both sides that Bush, as Governor, would be unable to serve on the DWI jury, while Bush, outside the court house, was telling reporters that it is every citizen's duty to serve on a jury and he would be proud to do so.
AUSTIN, Tex. -- Travis County's lead prosecutor on the 1996 drunk driving case in which Gov. George W. Bush was called as a potential juror now believes he was purposely misled by Bush and his attorney in an effort to avoid service.

He hustled around the state in a chartered plane, reciting his achievements and promising more of the same.
At every stop he also took a couple of lusty licks at Benjamin Travis Laney, the wealthy, 53-year-old former governor and Dixiecrat leader who had come out of political retirement to seek a third term and save Arkansas from Sid McMath and those Fair Deal radicals in Washington.
When Dixiecrat Laney tried to picture Sid McMath as a traitor to the South, supple Sid declared against such pet Truman projects as FEPC and compulsory health insurance, but still capitalized on his closeness to Harry Truman.
