    The key thing I think of when I'm thinking about using unusual names is, "What do I call them?"

    Like, my name is Gregory. Nobody calls me that, and nobody ever really has. Now this is partially because I dislike it, but it's also because my parents always called me Greg. It's an easy name to shorten, and it has an established shortening method, so it just happens all the time.

    Now if you're looking at some more unusual names, you gotta figure out what those short names are gonna be there. Take, for instance, a name I had considered using for a child previously, Reynard. That shortens down to Rey, which is a homophone of Ray, an established name. That makes it nice and easy. But if you were to look at like, Odysseus (another name I have previously considered, let's be real), what do you do for that? Odd? That seems like a kind of cruel name to give a child, to begin with, and will definitely stick out in an environment with a number of other "normal" names.

    They would definitely go by Odie, like the Garfield dog

    I tried to pick the least damaging nickname I could find, okay

    I know Odysseus is a bad choice for multiple reasons

    whitebread biblical names are the most boring shit and I kinda bristle a little whenever people get mocked for naming their kids Sephiroth or Thor Pudlik.

    they still have a cooler name than you.

    I very strongly disagree about anyone being named Sephiroth being cool.

    Also there are societal advantages to having a so-called "boring" name that you are essentially denying your kid in order to be "cool". It's not a pet it's a human being that has to live with the dumb stuff you saddle them with. Look at all the children of hippies who are bitter about being called Waterfall or whatever. A lot of people don't want that baggage.

    Yeah it’s kinda scary how hard the numbers show it’s way easier to get a job if your name is John than Expelliarmus.

    Especially considering if you say his name to him during the interview process, you're gonna be dealing with a cup full of coffee flying through the air, or a pen and clipboard, or whatever the fuck else he's holding.

    God forbid his babysitter cancels and he has to bring his infant to the interview.

    Everyone should just change their name when they turn like 10.

    Everyone should get 3 free name changes and you can use two prior to turning 18

    On the one hand I think both legally and socially it should be way easier and more acceptable for people to choose their own name.

    On the other, I look at the various stories I wrote and handles I came up with in high school and 100% appreciate there are systems in place to prevent teen me from changing their legal name.

    I like this because it means that instead of some kids having an embarrassing name, everyone would have an embarrassing name.

    I'm like 90% sure that under this system I would have chosen "Batman Hercules" or some shit.

    I have a twitter.

    If you'd allowed me to change my name in High School my name would've been fuckin'... Raven Darkshire or something.

    Basically they really should have let me. I'd probably be tougher than I am now, with all the ass-kickings.

    Oh the popular kids will quickly decide which specific types of embarrassing are cool and everyone else will still be mocked mercilessly.

    If there's one thing society has endless creativity for its cruelty and exclusion
