Agreed, how could they possibly be embarrassed? As long as their peers have a proper childhood (eg. Growing up with LOTR) then they should be fine! Plus I know a bunch of kids with odd names and it doesn't really matter past third grade. Unless your name is Venus and you're ugly. Im sorry, but your parents were setting you up for failure there
"Reneesme". Or however you spell it. I mean, I'm not a fan of Tolkien but he created beloved stories and created or cemented most of the conventions of the High Fantasy genre. Peregrin can also stand as a name on its own - an unusual one, but naming people after birds of prey is not stunningly bizarre. Unlike "Reneesme" where stunningly bizarre is just the start of the problems.
You can drink your fancy ales you can drink em by the flagon but the only brew for the brave and true... comes from the green dragon.
That's awesome! But if it really bothers you that much (and it shouldn't), they'll most likely wind up going by nicknames anyway. Perry's a perfectly normal name, after all.
That's a bit too obsessed in my opinion. But hey, they might find 11 other friends and they will embark thought the adventure called life. :)
I don't see that as awful. It's better than something typical like "Bill" or "Jeff".
