I’m name crushing hard on [name]Siegfried[/name]. And this may sound like a strange reason to some, but he’s a favorite nideo game character of mine. I know there’s probably no way it could be a fn unless I move to [name]Austria[/name] sometime in the future, so would carrying it around as a mn be not as bad for the future son? We cann all agree some names might be just too much for an adolescent.
I don’t think it would be too much at all. As long as the first name wasn’t…silly…
As long as you don’t think you would regret naming a child after a video game character later in life.
I think its fine as a mn, personally. Plus its a fun name to say and distinguished sounding imho. I see the mn spot as a place to use the unusual names that might not sit well with you as a first name but still use. [name]Hence[/name] my oldest has [name]Elihu[/name] as a mn…since we are not Jewish and I felt it to be too “out there” given where we live (area of the US where his peers have trendy, Kreeatyve or classic names…[name]Elihu[/name] would not fit) but love that we used it none the less.
[name]Siegfried[/name] is great as a middle name.
Fun as a middle name!
I think [name]Siegfried[/name] would be a great, unique middle name. I’m personally contemplating Gotham for a boy’s mn, so I see where you’re coming from.
A good friend of mine has a brother named [name]Siegfried[/name], they are Americans (born/raised). It suits him fine and he goes by [name]Free[/name] as his first name.
Thanks for all the feedback everyone. (: It’s not just the video game charcter, I agree with jemama that it sounds very distinguished and I like that. And where I live is the exact same way. My peers seem to only use names that are popular. Anything else is “too strange.”
I think it’s fine as a middle name. Not just fine, it’s special. I love my unique middle name much more than my first name.
My post must have not gone threw.
I love the name [name]Siegfried[/name], it was actually on my list [if I was having a boy, which I didn’t, but que sera sera]. I also like the nickname [name]Ziggy[/name], I think its cute.
So to answer your question, hellz no I don’t think it’ too far out there.
[name]Ziggy[/name]? Aww, that’s cute scarlettrobin! And I agree, elska. Special is good. I got stuck with [name]Kaitlin[/name], spelled that horribly kree8iv way, along with a good bit of other early 90’s baby girls. Lol
