Sounds like "porcine" or "portly." No thanks.

Orchid_Lover Says:


I disagree with the "Name Info"...Aramis is way more usable. Who cares about the perfume connection with Aramis? Much like the name Nuria for girls...anyway, Aramis has been used much more in the US than Porthos or Athos. In fact, Porthos has NEVER made the SSA list.
