This is borderline for me. You have already set a pattern with naming that I think [name]Pandora[/name] fits into. I don’t see you reaching for an easy-going, blend-in name just to be on the safe side. I don’t love [name]Pandora[/name], but I think hmm… will she get teased? I think mostly, she will just have an unusual name. If she is susceptible to merciless teasing at all, it’s an easy association, but she can just be [name]Penny[/name] or [name]Pandora[/name], I don’t think it’s so extreme-sounding from her friends [name]Sophia[/name] and [name]Annabella[/name] and [name]Olivia[/name].
A group of guys in my college did mercilessly tease me of my last name - or one guy made it longer and vulgar, several thought that was really my last name when they heard the one guy’s disgusting pun and still teased me, so was I crushed? Was it my parents fault? [name]Just[/name] some stupid thoughtless kids, we’ve all moved on. I think might be a rite of passage to expect, but I don’t think it’s a life-long sentence that she will have rather have been called anything else.
I can imagine a co-worker named [name]Pandora[/name], in an ordinary office (among other workplaces, but let’s get as boring a situation as possible). It’s unusual, but I don’t think too much about a story about a different [name]Pandora[/name] or her box, or her “box” when I consider an actual person with a name. I’ve met people with unusual names and I just maybe like the name or don’t like the name, but I can say, [name]Mike[/name], meet [name]Pandora[/name], [name]Pandora[/name], [name]Mike[/name]. I don’t know what [name]Mike[/name] is thinking now, but he’s hopefully grown up enough not to say it or think about it for more than a couple minutes. There are people who think they’re the first one to point that out and that it’s not an impolite thing to do, so she might have a few annoyances as an adult, and have to have a sarcastic, “yeah, I never heard that one before” kind of response. These people would be those who think they are more clever than most or can’t think of something else to break the ice. But other names or personal qualities can have the same result.
I’d consider it to be mildly annoying occasionally rather than a lifetime of out-and-out merciless teasing.
