I don't know why, but this name somehow sounds very 'evil' to me. It doesn't give the impression of a nice person.

The beginning of this name makes me think of a morgue. It's still an awesome name though.

For some reason, I really like the name Mordecai. It kind of sounds like the name of some ancient warrior or something.

I think it's a wonderful and very strong name. And if you're using it on a pet, it would fit on a large black dog or some kind of larger bird, like the falcon in the Royal Tenenbuams.

Actually, I had no idea this was a first name. I've seen it as a surname, but not a first name.

I think it's a cool name because it sounds like it came straight out of a fantasy book or game. It's also unique-sounding. I don't know anybody personally with this name, but there is a character in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance named Mordecai.

Sounds like "mortify". Both creepy and cool.
