My daughters name is Mimi. It's not short for anything, her full name is just that. The descriptor for Mimi is "Flirty, flimsy name of the tragic heroine of La Bohème...and Rent."
I certainly don't mind the connection to the heroine it's the word "flimsy" that annoys me the most.
I disagree with negative description for names since it feels like bullying.

Just wanted to add my $0.02: Osbert doesn't seem wimpy to me at all. It just screams brawny-knight-in-a-Harlequin-romance-novel, much like Osric. In fact, the stark contrast of Osbert's description to Osric's description is sadly comical, since Osric is "clad in armor." Poor Osbert... so similar, yet so condemned. o.OBoys: Ignatius, Hieronymus, Casimir, Osias, Ludovic, Hesperus, Calixto, Aurelius

Please add Lance- "Lance, despite the heroic achievements of Lance Armstrong, has a rather limp-wristed soap opera image"
I only just noticed the reference to Lance Armstrong, now disgraced. My issue is with the description is the use of "limp-wristed." (It bothers me so much!)
Definition 1: describes a man who seems, by his manner, to be gay
Definition 2: describes a man who does not behave in the strong and determined way traditionally expected in men
