Oh come on, that's what he was at the beginning and how did he end up? Think on how many people you know that are like the Ebenezer in the end. It means stone of help, it's a great name.

*gag* Just picture a small child. A cute little five-year-old. Then picture him waving and saying, "Hi, I'm Ebenezer!" And try not to laugh.

This sounds like the name of an old man, and the sound is a bit comical as well. Besides, the name reminds me of a very annoying track from the 90s by The Shamen, titled Ebenezer Goode, I think.

My professor's name and his son's name is Ebenezer, but everyone calls him Eb. I believe he is Brazilian. His son is Nezer (tries not to laugh).

I can't hear this name without instantly thinking of "A Christmas Carol".

Ebenezer Baptist Church was the church that Martin Luther King was the pastor of.

It sounds snobbish, pretentious, and outdated, if it didn't immediately bring to mind Ebenezer Scrooge. It's just plain ugly.

Ebenezer is the full name of oldest child Ben in the 19th century Five Little Peppers children's series.

I have a strange liking to this name. And everyone forgets that he turns out good in "A Christmas Carol." A good nickname is Ben.

It doesn't really matter how Ebenezer Scrooge ended up at the end of the novel, when considering his name. When I hear Ebenezer, all I can think of is the character from the book. "A Christmas Carol" has become so iconic that there really is no other association. And unless the novel were to fall out of popularity/off the canon--*highly* unlikely, and it would sadden me if this happened--this name just isn't practical on a child.
