Mez Says:


Reminds me of Count of Monte Cristo, a classic piece of literature and film (but each are different variations of the story). It's a strong name that hints at wealth and possibly conceitedness. I have trouble seeing this as a first name since it is a little dated. Also it's usually a place like Monte Carlo (even in Count of Monte Cristo) and sometimes used as a brand name especially for hotels. There are also Monte Cristo Sandwiches.
