I always heard it pronounced ha-vee-air or ha-bee air. Pronouncing it zay-vee-air sounds pretty bizarre to my ear.

I'm just glad my name hasn't popped up yet

I have a hard time taking anyone named Brent or Brant seriously.

I like family names. Portuguese names (if you're Portuguese) are cool. Some of the more trendy names today (Tyler, Madison, Cody, Jackson, Dylan, etc.) are silly, but you can't blame the kidz....

Guy is a horrible name. The pronounciation in both french and english is like nails on a chalk board.

Mauricio? Otherwise, Maurico is a bit close to Maricon.

Hey man, no problem! If it makes you feel any better, I hated my name for a long time but am finally ok with it.

I hate when dudes named John spell their name 'Jon'. Like this asshole:



Oh yeah, I also think that making judgments about people based on their first name is really lame (i.e., "I can't take anyone named Brent seriously.").

I would resent that, but my name is Jonathan.
