Oberon - Too Much Teasing Potential?
I like the name Oberon. A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of my favourite Shakespearean comedies and I like the sound of the name. However, I discounted it as an option when I came across someone saying they went to school with an Oberon and he was teased mercilessly with being called a fairy etc. I was surprised (and slightly impressed) kids young enough to tease over something like that actually knew Oberon was 'King of the fairies' and in the last few days I've been wondering how likely it is for it to be picked up on at school? Was this example an unfortunate one-off or do you think it's a common hazard of the name?
My other concern with Oberon is not really like any potential NNs. I really don't like Ron and I'm not overly fond of Obi. Can you think of any other NNs?

Oberon is on my list and i really doubt anyone who is at the teasing names age knows about the reference... I think the person who made that comment is more likely assuming the kid will be teased rather then actually knowing.
I think ppl who know of the reference would have a level of maturity- well i hope..
I really like Bron as a nn I might have to run the name past my husband and see if i can sneak it onto the list.
