    He and I/Him and I etc

    In the sentence below should the sentence be ..."he and Adrian..." or "...him and Adrian..."?

    At Walter’s house, Walter led him and Adrian through the back door into the kitchen and down a set of narrow wooden steps to the cellar.

    "Him" is correct, but I think it would scan better if you used the him's name as well.

    "Him" appears to be grammatically correct but I think the sentence still remains inappropriate, as it doesn't give a complete information.

    I guess you should better write: At his house, Walter led "name of the character" and Adrian through the back door into the kitchen and down a set of narrow wooden steps to the cellar. I just work as a copywriter (if my works are interesting, then you can see them on writingpeak) so I have some experience in writing. It will sound better as for me.
