I knew a woman named Seven. Everyone thought it was a joke or a nickname and kept asking what her "real" name was, or if she had 6 siblings.

Could only see this name as a joke due to Seinfeld.

Can't overlook the fact that it's a number, perhaps if it weren't it would be a nice name.

There was girl in my class in France named Sixteen. This is only slightly better.

DearestJules Says:


I actually do know a boy with this name. I mean, I don't /really/ know him -- I was looking through my old elementary school yearbooks for names and I was shocked to see a boy a few grades older than me named Seven! I wish he'd been in my grade so I could've observed everyone's reaction to his name, you know?

But - but - it's a... number. Go with Septimus, if that's what you're going for.

It's too much of a number, and could easily be confused for Sven (which is a good alternative).
