My wife has an unusual first name. (Child of the 60's, No I'm not going to tell you what it is) It serves her well, She is in demand in her chosen profession (Nothing to do with poles) and people have found her to hire her based on her first name only. Both my sisters have unusual names also so her name fits right in with my family.
A friend of hers from the first grade was able to find her on facebook based on only the first name. Sometimes a memorable name is an advantage, sometimes not.
When youconsider names for your child stand at the top of the stairs and shout it like you are angry at them, if it doesnt roll off the tounge, reconsider.
