    Really, really like this name - it was the name of a great baseball pitcher "Mordecai 'Three-Finger' Brown who lost some fingers in a farming accident but went on to be one of the best pitchers of the early 20th century. Kind of a tragic story but, for me at least, adds to the intruige of this name. Cool choice.

    Wow, I am surprised at the amount of positive feedback so far! Yay!

    @cinnamontime: That is really helpful to hear about a family that actually chose the name. Thanks!

    @newdad2011: Thanks for sharing that story. I agree, it adds to the intrigue of the name and I think it gives it a kind of victorious connotation.
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

    Thumbs up from me, unusual but not unheard of, pronounceable (though he's spend a lot of time spelling it) and a great nn.
