Name Mind-Changers

Name Mind-Changers

I once met an absolutely adorable little boy whose name was Percy, which was not exactly one of my favorite names at the time.  But this one endearing Percy managed to completely alter my perception of the name.  And, picturing him, has had me defending it ever since. 

Which leads us to today’s Question of the Week:

Has there ever been a name that you were coolish on, ambivalent towards or downright opposed to, about which you changed your mind completely and irrevocably once it became attached to an appealing child?  Or adult, for that matter.
