The lion reference comes from a cartoon short from 1952, and it ended in bravery on the lion's part. As such, I'm not quite sure why you felt the need to add that comment in, as if it was a negative or had any true sway on the name in general. After all, what people are more likely to think of in the 21st century would be, say, Adam Lambert.

Having said that, I've always liked it as a surname. But having recently discovered the incredible singer Mary Lambert, I am now very much considering it as a first name for a boy. The 'lamb' aspect makes it sweet whereas the 'bert' component makes it strong. It's an eccentric choice, but not one that would need to be justified. It's charming and it ages well, it possesses the timeless classic appeal minus the tired popularity and, in its own understated way, it is quite vibrant. Overall, it is an intriguing choice.
