I wasn't teased about my name, but I did hear the same damn joke like a million times ("Huh huh, like Super Mario Bros! It's a me, Mario! lolololol!!!!!!1!11111!")

But I like having a non-boring name, and so if I have children they will have cool names.

But I mean, there's a difference between not naming your kid Adolf or Phuc (actual Vietnamese name) or even Gaylord because you're concerned about teasing, and like, choosing not to name your kid Nelly (omg they'll be called Smelly Nelly!) or something ethnic/non-Anglo-Saxon or something like that.

I understand avoiding something really strange or resembling something offensive in English, but anything based on avoiding nameburns seems silly to me.
