My History of Civ teacher in college sounded like Kermit the Frog and was named... Bill Licht. We all shuddered.
Hmmm... Since I'm not the "matronly" type, I can't say I wouldn't name my kids anything... but, were I to immaculately conceive, I would not use:
Eric/Aerik/Erich/any other variant spelling
...and those are just off the top of my head...
In stories, however, I like to take common names and spell them funky... so, my characters get the weird names you'd never want to saddle a child with... like Melany or Aezrick. *writes down Aezrick for her next fiction story*
