    This... I completely agree. I also think it's a bit soft sounding, so you'd need a good, strong first name.

    It's all bear to me. Rather pretentious, too.

    Honestly, I would have to try really hard not to laugh if I met a kid named Paddington. I can't think of a single guy I know who would enjoy being named Paddington.

    Agree with this. It's about the bear and also as a Londoner - about Paddington station. Great name for a dog though :-)
