    These echo my first thoughts completely, especially the Kush reference.

    I like Kishon, and Kish could be a good nickname for him
    -an Amelia from a time before 'Amelia' was in the top 100.

    Currently feeling:*Roseanne Amelia* or *Kamal Clifford*

    My thoughts exactly.

    That's really interesting about the pronunciation. Thank you for that.

    Still like it. Will put it on my list and let it sit for a while. Thank you everyone for your comments

    Hmm...I don't know. I think either of "kitsch" or "knish." I'd use it as a nn or middle name. I don't know that it's that well-known of a name (I hadn't heard of it) for people not to associate it with other things before the name itself.
