I can't imagine a real person going through life with this name. This isn't a name. There are good word names but this is not one of them.

I remember reading a "Dear America" book when I was in 5th grade, and it was the diary of a pilgrim named Remember Patience Whipple. This name has very early-American connotations for me.
