So sorry to the people who like this name, but it sounds like a fish, or many fish, depending on your interpretation.

I really can't stop laughing. I'm trying but it's not working. I just keep picturing one of those annoying parrots who says embarrassing things.

I'm sure this was a perfectly beautiful name in Ancient Greek. However, I can't help but look at it and see "Holy crap".

That's exactly what I saw! ;-) Sorry, but I can't picture a person--or a character--with this name.

Polycarp is a noble and beautiful name.

I know this isn't the meaning, but it looks like it means "many carp".

What kind of name is this? Why is this even a name and where the heck did it come from?

Though I find it highly unlikely it should happen, god save any (English-speaking) child whose parents should deign to curse them with this name.

There is no record in the entire world of someone having this name in history. You just wanna laugh when you hear it. And I'm sure if there was a person with this name and anyone would meet, they would laugh in that unfortunate person's face.

Besides the name being in the Count of Monte Cristo, I actually have a cousin with this name, but most people don't know because he only uses his middle or last name.

In small towns where we are from there are a lot of old saint names that have been used since ancient times. So yes, it is used.

The feminine version of this name was borne by Policarpa "La Pola" Salavarrieta (c. 1795-1817), a young heroine of the Colombian independence movement.
