I like it, even though I do automatically associate it with Linus from Peanuts.Wren (03.08), Estella (05.10), Blair (10.11), and Yves (12.13).

Love Linus! I find it to be the most fun and friendly and quirky of the -us or -as names (Elias, Jonas, Silas, Matthias, Justus, Cyrus, etc.), and it is by far my favorite (although I love Elias, Silas, and Cyrus, too!). I'm just dying to meet a little Linus, because every time I try to add it to my own list something just feels off. If I ever decided to honor my grandfather (who was L. B., and just L. B.) I would definitely have a little Linus--it's by far my favorite "L" name, and I love everything about it! I agree with those who think Linus from Peanuts was cute. I never really was into Peanuts, but I've watched a few of them, and at least know who he is.
I loved (and love!) it so much I tried to name one of my main characters in a story Linus about a year ago--the story flopped, but I remember polling all my coworkers about Linus to see what they thought--very few of them thought Linus was cool, and a great many of them probably would have thought it'd be a mistake to name an actual person Linus. I don't know what that says about how Linus would be received, but I really want it to be revived! It's long been a favorite of mine, and I think it just exudes cool.
