It's unusual, but I think it would make a good middle name.

One of Ovid's stories in his book Metamorphoses is entitled "Baucis and Philemon." It's about a couple (Philemon is the man) who desire to not witness each others' death, and as a result, when they die (at the same time), they transform into trees. An incredibly beautiful story, in my opinion.

Strangely enough, the sound of this name reminds me of filet mignon. Yeah... I could never use this.
