    Any love for Eponine?

    In conjunction with another thread I just posted, I was wondering if there were any Berries that liked the name Eponine. I used to not like it much, but I think it is growing on me and I think the nn Eppie would be really cute. Anyway, feel free to tell me I'm crazy or let me know that you like the name as well!

    It doesn't appeal to me at all, really. Eppie sounds like drug slang (maybe because it rhymes with ecky, slang for ecstasy).

    Eponine isn't unfamiliar to me because I'm from a French speaking area, though I'm a Legend of Zelda fanatic and would choose Epona as the nickname.

    I LOVE Les Mis and the character of Eponine. I think she is strong, brave, kind, all qualities I would want in a daughter. I love the name, and I think Pippa could be a cute nickname.

    However...

    It's unusual, almost weird. It would be pronounced wrong often. AND it is SO tied to the one Eponine. I think its generally not a good idea to give kids a name that is tied to one person only. Especially one who, for all her wonderfulness in the musical, wasn't all that awesome in the orginal book. That being said, I wish I could use the name because I do love it. I'm not sure if I ever could.

    Even with the Les Mis association, the first thing I think of is horses. It just doesn't seem like a very flattering name to me.

    And Eppie reminds me of Epinephrine.
