DearestJules Says:


I almost like it but it reminds me of the character Socko from iCarly.

Hydra Says:


Oh, okay. I live in America and don't speak Spanish, so I guess that's why. Thanks for letting me know!

Eva Thyssen Says:


Here in Chile sounds old (like Myrtle), sad and tragic (Socorro=help me!). There're better -o ending names in Spanish, like Consuelo, Loreto, Rosario or Rocío.

Guest Says:


Makes me think of Rococo for some reason.

Hydra Says:


What's so awful about it? It seems like one of the few girls names with the dynamic -o ending, and it's uncommon. Plus, it's meaning isn't too bad, either. Where's the trouble?

Eva Thyssen Says:


This is an awful name.
