  • I understand its a family name and thats why u are drawn to it but its not so much for me. Maybe like a few others have said u can use it for a middle name but i wouldnt use it for a first name. Just me tho and really its your baby only ur opinion matters

  • I think its ok. My first thought was Jason Priestly but that isnt necessarily a bad association. I think it is close enough to other popular names like Presley that he wouldnt be made fun of. I do however think it would probably be better suited as a middle name. I think it is a fine name to honor family :)

  • For middle name it;s ok. I'd never give my kid that name as a first name.
