Con or Connie is often short for Conrad.

Famed baseball player and manager Connie Mack was actually a Cornelius.

"Thankfully, most kids grow up into adults and no longer get the giggles (or worse) over names."

Possibly, but they still have to deal with it.

Case in point, when I was still in school and on the yearbook staff, we'd look through old editions, there was one from the not-too-distant past with the unfortunate name of....

(G-name for homosexual) Stoner.

Ouch!

Gotta believe that the poor woman still gets to hear snickers wherever she goes.

My aunt is 60+ and still doesn't like admitting her middle name is G*y.

That was my uncle's name, too. Short for Gaius. His wife's name was Clysta. Guess what her nickname was?

Is "Thunder" a common first name in any country of the world? 'cause in mine, it raised quite a few eyebrows.

Stop presses!  We just received Mr. Thipu's alumni magazine.  One of this year's graduates is named 'Jesusislord'.

That poor young man!

I had a coworker named Jil, which stood for Jesus is Lord. She spent a lot of time correcting the spelling of her name.

Many, many other little boys had that name before the Trayvon Martin situation.  And in a few years, hardly anyone will even remember the case, much less think of the name in terms of that one specific person.  I think it would be like people being afraid to name their daughters any variation of Elizabeth because of Lizzie Borden!
I did want to use Katrina for a middle name for DD but because of the hurricane I chose not too and I am not even American it is just at the time (which was a year  later) it was like the hurricane had taken the whole name over, no one even said hurricane Katrina, the name Katrina meant the hurricane and nothing else really so I could see why people wouldn't use a name associated with a major event especially a less common name.

Friday was new student orientation.  As I was walking past a group of students and their parents I heard one of the parents speak to their daughter about not lagging behind the group.  Her name?

Operetta.

Again with the unique spellings (unless there is actually a name Awston and it isn't a variation of austin) Austin is a perfectly good name...

I have a friend name Katerina - she goes by Katrin. Maybe you could use that name?

It is a pretty name - such a shame that it now associated with such bad thoughts.
