Thread: Too wild to use?
March 14th, 2013 12:50 PM #16
Oh, doesn't everyone have a list of special names they admire but just can't wrap their minds around using?
I have this inexplicable fondness for Horatio. And now that the O names have come of age, it almost even fits in. But I would always add "I am dead!" to Horatio, as an involuntary middle name. "Horatio I-Am-Dead James! Get over here!" It can't be done.
Deveraux. Was there ever such a swashbuckling name as Deveraux? My sister told me it "sounds like a midlife crisis." Oh well, that French suffix was too much anyway.
Amadeus. I've been in love with this name for years. Every time we have a baby I bring it up, and hubby says it's unwearable. So I guess it's unwearable. Pity. I recently discovered variant Amadeo and the O makes it even cooler. Alas.
Sherlock! No. That one doesn't work IRL.
Inigo. "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." Nope. Not even if you give the kid fencing lessons.
Saxen. There's a whole book of reasons no to use this. It just sounds so cool though.
I love lots of boys names. The girls names are more difficult for me. But I have a couple that get much admiration though I'd never use them in real life:
Zelda. Hubby is a computer guru. He'd be laughed out of his profession for naming his kid after a video game.
Azalea. I love it. I hope someone uses it. I just don't think I could.
Dulcinea. I might actually go for it if I lived in a region that could actually pronounce "dool" instead of "dull." Since I don't, I won't.
