14. I agree.
We have some old family names that we altered because they would be awkward in today's society in some ways..Fanny became Fay for instance. Seriously, I would NOT name any kid Fanny. Nor would I probably choose the name of my great grandfather, Sol to give to a kid.
Personally I don't think there was the suggestion of "trash" in your post. As a victim of bullying as a kid I know that kids tend to pounce on things that are different or silly.
Hell, I got picked on in jr high school because my nick name was mentioned in a popular rock song!
