    I love it!! But...I don't think I'd use it as a first name...kids have enough to deal with. I'd love to have it as a middle name, though.

    Love it, just as I love Augusta/Ada (referencing Augusta Ada King/Byron - Contess of Lovelace), a great thought to name a girl for an awesome woman. It will likely be met with resistance from people who don't understand, but haters gonna hate.

    Sure, why not? I don't even think of 'hippo' when I hear/read it because it's pronounced 'h-eye-pay-sha'.

    Well... I'm not a fan I must admit. Awesome namesake or not, it just doesn't sit well on my tongue.

    But it's not "weirder" than so many other names we hear today, so why not?!
