    She was a cool character, but it would be weird to name you child that.

  • Ugh don't name your children theme names from popular books! YOU aren' t the one who has to deal with it later in life!

  • Only if her last name was Lestrange

  • Sigh. Yes.

    Please don't name your kids after oddly-named characters in current pop culture. As another poster said, your poor children are the ones who will be saddled with that name for the rest of their life.

    Here's a way to tell if the name you are considering might be a little too far "out there": picture yourself moving to a new school in your worst year of school (for some it was middle school, for some it was high school) and imagine your peers' reactions if that was your name. If you were never teased or made fun of in school (lucky you!) then ask someone you know who WAS.

  • I would think it's funny, yes. She was such a nut in the HP books, maybe pick a character that wasn't evil.
