I was surprised by how much I liked the name Harliquinn reading it in this thread! I think it's cute, funky and pretty. Looks like it suits her to a T.
And if she gets older and feels like she doesn't want to use it, she can always use Harley or Quinn. But she'll probably just rock her name and no-one will ever question it.
I wasn't aware that it was a disease...never of heard it before, so didn't make the association.

Some names are unfortunate for the kid long term .. I think celebs can get away with more strange names as their parents are so well known .. The kid will most likely be well known .
But for plan Jane down the road who has a kid called tinker bell .. Well I only hope the kid has a bright future!!

Are unusual names cruel?
I have nieces Moneé, Indiah and Avalie (pronounced Ava-lee) and Nephews Jayden (unusual 21 years ago when he was born), Cohen and Jensen.
My girls are Kaida (Japanese name) and Allira (Aboriginal) and I think all of these names are unusual, but not 'cruel'.
I did hear of a girl naming her children Brooklyn and Miami, I never quite got that one. Also Triggher for a boy i think is silly. I don't think these names could ruin the child's life though.

Also when I deal with upset customers at work (part of my job is moderating our facebook page), I don't give my real name as I am the only person in Australia with name and I would be so easy to find. I actually fear for my safety sometimes due to my name...I have actually had a guy stalk me, even after I moved and changed my phone number, because he was able to find my name so easily. I've had to change the privacy on all my social media accounts, so no-one can find me, make sure my numbers are private, etc. Not fun!
I find a psuedonym so much easier to deal with.

Are unusual names cruel?
For the record, Harlequin is actually this >
The condition was named for the appearance of the costume. I think of the original meaning first.
If every name that could ever be associated with something unpleasant was discounted there would be a very limited choice!
