I don't know, the first syllable sounds perfectly fine to this American's ears.

Thank you kelken17 for defending this name so bravely. My English-speaking friends like my name. I think, the first sylable sounds foreign; and that can be good if you are out for something new :-)

I think it would make an interesting middle name. Definitely rare.

Agreed. Whose opinion is that? Saying not to use this name in America and suggesting other names? What the hell?

I really dislike the judgey sound in descriptions on a few names. Really turns me off from the sight.
I personally think this name as potential even to my American ears.

Sir Uuuuuuuuuuuuuulric Von Lichtenstein!

I actually like this name, partially because it was the name of a character I liked on a cartoon when I was a kid. And the A Knight's Tale reference, too. :)
