It sounds like a pretty sad name, Mervyn. No offense, but I see this name belonging to a frumpy, unattractive male.

I can't help but hear Mervyn and think of Robin Hood: Men in Tights... in the movie, that's the name of the Sheriff of Nottingham, and every time he tells someone his name, they snicker.
