    My sister named her husky rottweiler mixed dog that name. Though it's not my favorite name, I like the person who was named this is in the Bible. If you like it, then go for it. I like some names that other people aren't crazy about, but I won't change my preference.

    A little archaic perhaps but I think it's a cool name.
