    Low class means not having much class. You're thinking of it as an economic stratification thing. That isn't how it's being used.

    I don't know that anyone has said someone is bullied for an unusual name. There are tons of unusual names that people wear well. It's the names that are perceived as strange that get bullied. A person named Beautiful or Princess is likely to be bullied, not because the name is unusual but because it's unusual and strange as a given name.

    My biggest thing though - 'You can't use that - nobody would know how to pronounce it!'
    My answer - Who cares? Didn't do me any harm. If people aren't exposed to names from other countries/cultures then they won't learn how to say them.
    We all have different experiences. I had a very unusual name when I was growing up and no one knew how to pronounce it. I dreaded the first day of school when the teacher went through the roll because my name was always butchered. It's just a pain having a name no one can say in my view.

    It doesn't really matter because in this case, no one is using it in that way.
