I would love this name if not for Freud! Unfortunately I strongly dislike the man and his most of his ideas, so I can't just look past it :(

I'm thinking of naming a pet Sigmund. I know Freud was a maverick but was he wrong? hahahaha Ziggy is cute at least.

Freud is pretty well known and had some very strange ideas. Plus Sig makes me think of cigarettes.
