I actually really like this! I don't know if I'd be brave enough to use it as a name in its own right, though.

I am SO waiting for this name to make comeback because of Fantastic Beasts. (Because, as we all know, the character bearing this name is pretty badass.) I like it as a nickname, not full name, though.

No. I too have a soft spot for this name: I had a chicken named this when I was little, and I still harbour an affection for the name.
