If it had a different meaning it wouldn't be a bad name.

The SOUND if it is fine (it rhymes with handsome), but it's a really bad word name to name a kid. Are they at least rich?

It sounds GREAT as a name but there is the issue of it's meaning. Really has a great sound though.

I really dislike it. Oh, the endless jokes about being kidnapped when the child gets into middle and high school. Plus, I just don't like the sound of it.

That and it has this trashy romance novel feel to it too. Like, the big brawny cowboy's name or something.

It sounds nice but has such an awful meaning that I do not like it for a name.

This would be the second time I've heard this name, but I think it's awful for obvious reasons.
