@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".

@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...
