Do you honestly believe any child given this name will escape teasing? It's not a stretch to think of what they will call him or her. A male body part comes to mind.

For heaven's sake, it's a FINNISH name! Lift your Americocentric eyes away from the glasses that show USA as the only country that counts and English as the only acceptable language! I might giggle at names that sound fun in my mother tongue, but I don't judge them as "horrible" or "impossible" or "names that would be mean to give a child", because that would only be true if the child lived in my home country. Most people on earth don't know a single word of English and do NOT live in America.

I think that the name is a fusion of two cultures. PEKKO was the spirit god of agriculture, especially barley. He made barley to grow, that is why he was considered to be the spirit god of beer in ancient eastern Finland. When Christianity landed in Finland circa 1000 ad. The Greek name PETROS (St. Peter) and PEKKO united into PEKKA. Apostole Peter is called PIETARI in Finnish.
