Reminds me too much of the town that got destroyed by a volcano.

Well, Pompey is my family’s name and I don’t care what people think. Every so often people make a smart-stupid comment about my name. Sometimes people will say I have a strong family name or how did I get that name. Someone from the Roman Empire settled in Africa and made babies. I really don’t know, but I met a woman one day that told me all Pompey’s are related. So, who knows.

Never heard of this name. It's strange and doesn't sound like an actual name.

Looks too much like the word "pompous", as other users have noted. Also, I don't like the sound.

Ancient Roman isn't a language... it's called Latin.

Urg, as someone has said before, Pompey is pretty widely known as a nickname for Portsmouth here in the UK -- not something you'd want to name your child (unless you really, really liked the football team). Besides, it sounds awful, and a lot like "pompous".

It sounds very close to "pompous", and it really IS pompous.

For some reason, the town of Portsmouth in England - a major naval base for centuries - has the nickname Pompey; as does its football club. Not a bearer of the name, exactly, but certainly famous.
