I have actually heard this used as a name -- a former teacher's son -- and apparently it was a name that had been in use for quite some time in his wife's family. The teacher was a bit eccentric, and I greatly enjoyed his class.


But here there is no light,
Save what from heaven is with the breezes blown
Through verdurous glooms and winding mossy ways.

-John Keats, Ode to a Nightingale
