This was my Grandmothers maiden name. We use it as the moniker for our vacation home, The Crows Nest. I also think this would make a fun and unusual, though by all means completely usable, middle name.

Very cool middle name choice, but a bit much for the first.

I don't think this is that bad. Crow's are incredibly intelligent birds, who are also very playful, loyal, and affectionate. Although I think I prefer Corvus as a name, Crow doesn't look or sound terrible, and is an interesting option (I have trouble picturing it on a child with non-black hair, however).

No, this is a terrible first name choice :(
