I like Von spelled this way, Vaughn
Vaughn would be pronounced v-OR-n, is this they way you want Von pronounced?
Personally, i prefer Vaughn to Von, and voted Henry James because the other two had Von in it.
What about Johan William? I quite like that.
Johan Von Snelling just doesn’t ring right.
Henry James is nice. Is he your favorite author?
I would avoid those "Von" names. It’s kind of embarrassing to say why and I hope you aren’t offended, but Snelling is a slightly funny surname. And when "Von" comes before a last name, you’re expecting something sort of dignified sounding -- von says "Here it comes! The dignified last name!" And then it’s this last name that is not like that. It’s like Ludwig Von Higgins. KWIM? It’s a fine surname generally, but you don’t want to give it a big build-up because that calls attention to the slight silly tinge that it has.
Von William sounds like the composer Ralph (pronounced Rafe) Vaughan Williams. And like the one above says, Henry James is an author.
