    I also knew a Ransom, who was a professor and such a nice man. I'm partial to the name, and agree with the previous poster that it's not nearly as bad as some others I see here. Use it as a middle if you can't do first. The Ransom I knew went by Ram.

    Ransom is on par with Maverick. Both are names that try too hard to be cool and just end up sounding ridiculous. I don't like it for another reason: it has much macho swagger which is a big turnoff. If you must placate your husband, use it for the middle spot.

    I've got to agree with Mischa on this one.

    I think some evangelical Christians like to use Ransom as it has theological overtones, rather than criminal ones. But CS Lewis' fiction was always quasi-allegorical. I don't think it's a realistic name either.

    I actually like it. I think of the Christian overtones before the criminal associations, but I realize I'm in the minority there.
