We are considering Pax as a middle name for our boy. However my husband is a bit worried now if it might be made fun of due to it sounding like "packs". So if the first name was for example John it would be John Pax - as in John packs (a suitcase?) .. Any experience of people using Pax as a middle name?

This is a Roman goddess, so I would prefer to use it for a girl.
