Xiaohui, most of the names you suggested seem to be surnames, rather than English first names. There are a lot of surnames used as first names, especially in America. For example, Grant, originally a surname, began as a first name in America and is now common throughout the English-speaking world. But I think it would sound better if you used these surname-type forenames if you were a man. Sherwood Huang, Sherman Huang - these sound like a man. You didn't reply and say what sex you are. However, the one I liked best in your list is Sheffield. It is not used as a first name, but I think Sheffield Huang sounds quite cool.
