i would appreciate it so much if nobody named their kid this, i don't mean to be rude, but honestly? a 'horned scully' is something used in war to tear holes in boats, so there's that, but also 'skull' is so close this 'scully' and i don't want my kid thinking about skulls all the time... plus in grade school this would not be good.
