No, those are very meaningful names to me and its one thing to not like the names, move on and just leave it at that, but to then further it asking if it was a joke is just impolite and I'm personally astounded your mother never taught you manners.
Sleepy Hollow was the first,"big book," I ever read. I was 5 and the book had such a profound effect on me it's almost unbelievable...Hence, Ichabod. Charles is my DF's name and he won't let me name one of our children's first names after him because he feels is pompous.
Sullivan is the name my Fiance picked out and Seamus is the name of his great-grandfather from Ireland
Cordelia is one of my favorite names hands down, and my ex wouldn't let me name my daughter that..Camille is a nice name in general and I need a "C" name to go with my daughters..
And Denese is DF's grammas name may she rest in peace.
I brought it up to DF and he almost cried at the the thought of it.
