Rudyard Kipling wrote the Jungle Book, and Rudyard was also the name of an evil character in P.B. Kerr's "The Akhenaten Adventure."

Pretentious, pretentious, pretentious. Would only make people think of Kipling, and this probably sounded elitist and snobby even a couple of hundred years ago.

I love the sound of Rudyard, and I don't find it snobby-sounding at all. Being a huge fan of his writing, I might use this name for a future son's middle name.

Rudyard Kipling's name didn't come from a surname. He was named after Rudyard Lake in Rudyard, Staffordshire. [noted -ed]
