I will destroy the avatar and bring honor to my family!

As a millennial and avid Avatar: TLA fan I think Prince Zuko would be an amazing namesake! He's a flawed character who overcomes rejection, a life time of conditioning and general misfortune to become a great wise leader and helps to turn a war stricken world around.
I love that it's actually a 'real' name with a nice meaning 😊

Our second sons middle name is Iroh. Totally after Avatar: The Last Airbender. It's such a good series!

A great name and great connection imo.

First and foremost association is definitely Prince Zuko from Avatar! Fantastic series, favorite character, would make a wonderful namesake-- although it would certainly be an "out there" choice.

Personally all I can think of is Zuko from The Last Airbender series. Great character, great show; would make a cool mn if I was brave enough! :) I feel like everyone around me would know it was a nod to the character hahaa

Where's Riz, Zuk!? All I can see is John Travolta smoking cigarettes & racing cars. Maybe this name would be better off for a dog..
