Linus. Are the associations set in stone or could it work?
I never liked the name Linus. Every time I heard it, I just thought of the Peanuts character and the security blanket and thought I would never want to give a child a name with such strong associations. I just watched the Sabrina movies, however, and I now have a very different impression of the name. For those of you who do not know the story, Linus is the name of a very serious, workaholic character played by Humphrey Bogart in the first version and Harrison Ford in the second. Suddenly, I began to picture Linus as a plausible name and I am really loving the way it sounds! I would love to hear the Berry impressions of the name though. What do you picture when you hear the name? Do you think a boy named Linus would get teased? What kind of person do you picture a Linus being?
