Karbear Says:


Wow ignorant and disappointing of you to only give this name the description of "prissy". Like many others, I think of Burt Lancaster, Burt Reynolds, and Tim Burton when I hear of this name. All of which are good associations. Perhaps you should focus on constructive criticism more so then personal opinions when running a business on social media.

Prissy is not what comes to mind when I hear Burton. I think of Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetle Juice, Sleepy Hollow . . .. Tim Burton in general. Meaning dark and bizarre. That doesn't bother me. I'm just not all that fond of the sound; I don't like most bert/burt names.
