Awful.

I don't like how people are teased because of their name. My cousin is called Hippolyte –French family– and I think that it's a beautiful name, that every name has its own beauty, and I really don't like it when people laugh at someone else because of their name. And I don't like either when they feel ashamed about how they are named and when they want to change it.

I'd personally feel sorry for anyone who has to go through life with this name, especially if they were chubby or overweight because of the blatant 'Hippo' part!

In Tolstoy's War and Peace, a character named Prince Hippolyte Kuragin is the brother of Anatole and Helene.

It's pronounced 'ippo-leet'. I have several (French) ancestors with this name, but they're all 1700s-early 1800s.

Now it's even being used on boys? I think this name is dumb regardless of sex.

In Madame Bovary, the porter with a club foot on whom Bovary's husband operates is named Hippolyte. A similarly unfortunate character appears in Dostoevsky's The Idiot with the Russian version of the name, Ippolit.
