Soldier .... too much?
I have a huge crushed on the name Soldier lately.Iam in love with it and I was thinking that if we use names like Archer, Danger, Booker, Painter etc so why not use Soldier? This name gives the imagine of a handsome man who is well educated and protects his family to me.But I am afraid if it's too much as a name or if he gives the imagine of a parent who is very fond to his country and wants to pass this to his son.
So I need your honest opinions on that name.
Do you think he will teased a lot?

Soldier isn't a surname with history of use as a first name, like Archer. It's a job and a controversial job at that. It makes me think of what is essentially legal murder. Definitely pass.

Soldier definitely comes off as a very patriotic choice, and is also such an unusual occupational name choice that it has the (possibly unintended) effect of typecasting what kind of child he/she will be... what if little Soldier grew up to be an anti-gun, anti-war, pacifist Buddhist or something?
I would discourage using Soldier as a first name. I suppose it wouldn't be the worst middle name choice you could make if you really want to use it on a future child, but honestly... I think I'd save it for a nickname. Or maybe for a pet dog.
