. . . it certainly isn't the case with all bird names. Wren, for example, is occasionally used for girls these days, but was certainly not in use as a personal name prior to its use for the bird
(http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=wren). Likewise for Lark (http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=lark)
Just because you find the use of the word "peacock" as a name a little ridiculous doesn't mean that some Greek parents of the early 1900s did not think it was lovely.
