Seriously don't be mean and name your kid this, it's terrible seriously.

The last person who commented is obviously not French. Baptiste is a common name in France and I doubt that children named Baptiste get teased there. The French might consider names like Paige and Madison weird, while Baptiste or Océane are normal for them.

I'm not a huge fan of the name Baptiste and can't imagine it on a little child, but choosing that name for a kid is certainly not 'mean'.

Baptiste Giabiconi, a very famous young model who was hand-picked by Karl Lagerfeld to be the face of Chanel, has this name. Very suiting for an attractive 20 year old-ish young man.

Very common in France. It would be a very odd name in America, but it's ok. Kinda long too.

Baptiste Giabiconi is a French male model and singer from Marignane, France. He is currently the male face of Chanel, Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld. Born in Marignane, Bouches-du-Rhône, Baptiste Giabiconi comes from a Corsican family. His father is from Bastia and his mother Marie-France from Calvi, both in Corsica. He spent his infancy in Moriani-Plage in the Haute-Corse region very near to Bastia, before moving to Marseille.

Baptiste was the stage name of French-Bohemian mime Jean Gaspard Deburau, known in Czech as Jan Kaspar Dvorak (Kolìn 1796 - Paris 1846),
It's credited to have shaped the characteristics of white pantomime with important innovation to the character of Pierrot (derived earlier from the Italian zanni "Pedrolino")
There are different fictional versions of his story: the French play Deburau, the Czech novel "nejvetsi z pierotu" (edited in English as "The Great Deburau"),
And the famous French movie "Les Enfants du Paradis" (Children of Paradise).
