    Wow, those are pretty bad. I don't mind Suki/Sookie as a nickname for Suzannah (or any of its variants) but as a stand alone first name, it's just no good. I'm guessing the parents are big True Blood fans? As for Euclid...I'm not even sure where to begin. It's just not appealing and there are no good nickname for it (Euey? Clid?). I have to agree with Mischa. Too bad they didn't use Adela and Lee upfront instead.

    I love Suki, especially as a nickname for Sakura. Suki, spelled like this, is its own Japanese name meaning beloved- Sukey is the diminuitive of Susan and Susannah. However, Suki doesn't do well for an American girl (though its Kanji and hiragana spellings are gorgeous) due to sucky teasing. Adela isn't the best MN for it, but at least it isn't filler... Or Euclid.

    Hopefully, they'll grow out of Euclid. I have a friend who wants to name her first daughter Onyxx-Rose (with the double x). Hopefully, she changes her mind like the Euclid person (probably/for the good of the world) will.

    Here's the thing though. Suki is not a Japanese name. It is literally the word for "like" (and pronounced more like "ski"). I'm not sure why but for some reason, a bunch of naming websites list it as a Japanese name that means "beloved" (my guess is that one website gave the listing and others just copied it), which is just completely inaccurate.

    I'm thinking they'll likely change their minds when they actually have children. I've heard from a lot of people that its easy to have super obscure unusual fanciful combos when you're thinking about children in the abstract, but when it comes to naming an actual child, a real little person, a lot of names get chopped.

    Euclid in particular strikes me as extremely pretentious and screams "LOOK AT HOW SMART I AM". Not a great choice. And Lee is such an uninspired middle name. Strange combo.

    As for Suki, it's a cute nn for Susan/Susanna but crap on its own. Susan Adela or Susannah Adele "Suk" would be lovely.

    Suki does sound pretty, regardless of whether the more authentic "devoiced U" pronunciation or the more American "Sookey" way is used.

    Euclid, though? Sounds more like something hidden in a gigantic botanical tome of some sort.
