Same, I often like unusual names, traditional names are often too common or 'boring' for my liking. I just don't get people who name their children something that no one will EVER get right (like the C(VIII)Lin [Caitlin] example I posted earlier in the thread).
I like Van, it always makes me think of Van Wilder but in the movie that was short for Vance.
I will admit I didn't notice that Dale & Sophie named their son Van Vine until mentioned here. That is unfortunate.
