Vermina vs. okay vs. no way

We told our 6-year-old, Violet, that she could help pick out a name for her baby sister. She picked her favorite computer game character, the pirate rat Vermina. Yeah, like Vermin-ah. Anyway, it’s kinda growing on us. It’s cute, sounds a little like Minerva (which we were considering in honor of my husband’s aunt)...but is it crazy?
Which baby name is best?

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.
