Achilles Demetri vs. Achilles Bowen vs. Achilles ????

We really like the idea of Achilles for our son. However so far we’ve gotten a lot of negative feedback. Does it have too much of a negative association? Will he be teased? Unless there is a really good reason not to use it, we’ll probably go with it, but we’d like lots of opinions. If you don’t like it, can you suggest other names that fit our naming style? (uncommon but not made-up; memorable and unique). We’d love other middle name suggestions as well. Other names we have considered are Leonidas, Franco, & Westeros. But we don’t like them as much. We have identical twin girls named Odiara & Fifi(5). Thanks! - Jack & Seren

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
