    I'd be embarrassed for a grown man named Huckleberry.

I love the full name in look and feel, but the rhyming word is always the first thing to pop into my head...and I'm a grown adult woman, so I can't imagine how his preteen boy classmates would react to his name. Even if you were able to avoid the nickname Huck--even if you could convince everyone to call him Huckleberry--I would worry that kids would call him **uckleberry instead (the thought of which makes me laugh out loud but is completely inappropriate). I recommend steering clear of Huckleberry, whimsical and charming though it may be. Someone above mentioned that the name Chuck has the same problem, and I recall being at a lake once and overhearing one man call his fishing buddy "F--ky Chucky." So yeah...that's a problem for Chucks too, and immature people are going to go there. I'm sorry. (By the way, I majored in English too!)
    All of this, except I haven't yet majored in English.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    Hawthorn sounds too "Harry Potter" to be a name, you know? I think Hawk would work better.
