I recently have found my Paddington books and began to think about Paddington as a name for a baby. I'm quite liking it for the middle name spot...WDYT?[FONT=Times New Roman]

Paddington Bear isn't a bad character at all, but I find the name a bit over the top and pretentious sounding. I know he was named after the London train station, which is my second thought when hearing the name. Paddington strikes me as being quite an upper-class sounding surname as well, though, which is why I find it a bit pretentious.

It could work as a middle name. It's a little too well associated with the bear and a little too pretentious-sounding for a first name, I think.
