@kev Well, this will really drive it home then. If someone asked me to list ten "trendy, exotic-sounding first names" for men, "Kevin" wouldn't make my list. Though, in fairness, it's still leagues better than "Mike".

I'm not sharing my first or middle name. They are the anglicized version of the otherwise cool sounding first names of my Dutch grandfathers and are why I go by a nickname. I don't share either of them unless I absolutely have to.



For your information, that's not a thing only in Germany.
Here in France we say more "a jean-kevin" than "a kevin" but it's more or less the same meaning : youngsters (well, not so young now) whose parents were TV-addicts who thought "cool" to name their child from some TV cheap soap-opera...
