Not such a fan of this name in particular, but I really like the feminization Egberta surprisingly!

Reminds me of John Egbert from Homestuck. A good character, and has made me see the name as a name and not just Egg.

He was my old best friend's favourite character/crush (mine was Drake). :P

Not too crazy about it for a real child, but for a historical fiction, fantasy, or steampunk character, it could be a good name for an older, adult male.

Yeah, unfortunately, Nameberry does write some pretty harsh descriptions. I wish they wouldn't...just because they don't like it doesn't mean everyone else won't.

Why all the hate for this name? I think it's kind of cute (for a character, not a real baby).
