Not a fan. I like Knox better, although this isn't terrible.

I absolutely adore this name, mainly because it's the name of Pete Wentz's kid, but, hey, it's a pretty cool name.

What's the appeal of place names ?

Guest Says:


this name gets so derided but how is it different from, say, Knox? Brooklyn as an area isn't all that wonderful but it gets seen as "edgy" and now it's a popular name. If Camden can get popular (Camden as an area is cringeworthy) then Bronx should get a chance in my opinion.
