Ha! This name makes me laugh. It's interesting because it's got a beautiful meaning and it flows nicely, but the connotations ruin it for me.

That doesn't even matter, and your grammer is incorrect

That's actually usually spelled SIKE. And pronounced differently

I love the myth behind this name and it's such a shame that it's not very usable in our day because if it was, my daughter would definitely be named after the Greek myth

the joke "psych" goes back to the 90s, maybe even the 70s because my mom used to say it.

I think it's beautiful and it has a lot of meaning for me, but unfortunately it would come off as a really strange word name. Maybe in the middle?

A poor choice of name

charlotteblu Says:


That doesn't apply, because it's pronounced "SIKE-ee" not just "sike"
