My husband and I are having a hard time coming up with a name for our fourth child (third boy). Our other two boys have very strong, distinct names. They are uncommon but not made up or word names. We both would like a name for this boy that fits the same bill. I’ve scoured the internet and we’ve looked through our family tree over and over, but the only name we both like is the name Rufio…yes, like in the movie Hook.
However, I am very uncertain about actually naming a child Rufio because of the date rape drug–Rohypnol, aka “roofies.” He’d probably get called Rufi on occasion just because it’s such a natural nick-name, and one that I don’t mind at all except for the one negative connotation.
Neither of us like [name_m]Rufus[/name_m] or any of the other names that would make Rufio the nick-name, and we have the same middle name for all our boys so it’s not an option to use it as a middle. I’m looking for honest feedback of what you’d think of your friend had a baby and told you they named him Rufio. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you think the association with a drug is reason enough to not go for a name we both like?
