I feel a bit guilty for saying this, but many people (myself included) seem to look at this name and think that it is a homonym of cretin.

I know someone who named their son this. I don't know what they were thinking. I think "cretin" every time I see it and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I can't imagine saddling a child with a name like this.
