Honest Opinions--WDYT?

[name]Hi[/name] Berries!

What’s your opinion of St.[name]John[/name] (pn Sin-gin) as a first name?

I fell in love with thename the first time I heard it, and I’m a bit of a stickler for sticking to original spellings of names, so wouldn’t really want to go with [name]Sinjin[/name] or [name]Sinjon[/name] etc. I love the way its pn, but is the spelling just asking for trouble? Thoughts?


Well I would think that most ppl would pronounce it as it appears and perhaps it’s a lot to live up to, having your name start with “saint”? I have never seen this as a first name and certainly not this pronounciation…sorry.

I first encountered this name when reading [name]Jane[/name] Eyre. I think this name is more common in the UK. I’m not sure it would work well in the US (where most people probably haven’t heard it pronounced).

I like the name, but depending on your location it could be a hassle.

OK, you wanted honesty, right? I think St. [name]John[/name] is insanely pretentious and over the top. Unless it was a SUPER meaningful family name, I think it is off limits. (Esp in the States-maybe it might be more usable in [name]Britain[/name], IDK)

I agree with Phoebesmom.

It’s a very Telegraphy type name, but too much for a little boy to live up to.

[name]John[/name] would be lovely and unexpected these days, though!
