Liliancecilia Says:


It says that this name is distinctively masculine... Maybe for those who don't speak Finnish, which i admit, is the majority of the world's population.
But in Finnish, this word is ugly in my opinion, and i would never in million years name my child, boy or girl, Perhonen. It almost sounds like one of the most common Finnish swear words. If you want to name your child according to a butterfly name, why don't you pick a name of a certain butterfly, like Apollo, or Aglais io, Papilia Machaon, Poplar admiral...
