Well, a few days/week or so after everyone else talked about Rufus, I’ve finally decided to do a post on it.
I like Rufus. I think it’s got a really nice sound and feel; hipster yet handsome, you might say. Besides the fact that Rufus Wainwright is one of my favorite singers:
So I’ve got lovely reason to use it. However, I worry about the usability and dog associations. I don’t know, but I think it would be alright in the liberal naming envoronment we enjoy today. I also worry about it being pretentious, a “hipster” type of name akin to, I guess, Sebastian. I hate Sebastian, though, and there’s worse things then being a hipster.
Some Rufus combos in my style:
- Rufus Horatio Calvin
- Rufus Geoffrey Calvin
- Rufus Johannes Edward or Rufus Edward Johannes
- Rufus Christoper Antony
- Rufus Robert Antony
- Rufus Frederick Paul
- Rufus Calvin
- Rufus Edward
- Rufus Frederick
- Rufus Geoffrey
- Rufus Christopher
Any you like? I feel as though they’re a little off, but maybe there’s some good I’m not seeing. I shouldn’t have looked at everyone else’s combos first!
So what do you think of Rufus? The Rufus combos? Anything else?
