The most ironic name for a serial killer.

I know a man with the first name Innocente. He's from a country, other thsn U.S., where the name is not uncommon.

Innocent is the name of the kid who's on drugs during middle school, and lost their virginity at age 9.

Middle name, maybe?

I think that the overall tone of the name is sweet, gentle, sophisticated and appropriate. At the very least it would make a nice change from the average, overcompensating, testosterone-gushing boy names we now see today. Although, having said that, "Mr Innocent" does sound a touch odd. Perhaps, in lieu of the recently popular Latin craze, the ancient Innocentius (which, sadly, does not appear to be listed on this site) would make for a more striking first name option?

Either way, Innocent in and of itself is a fairly distinguished choice, and is definitely a name that I would consider.
