Another March 8th comment, I find the name nice, actually. A nickname could be Skully, I guess.
It would be interesting for a character, but not as much on a person.

Modern usage of the name includes some colleges named after St. Scholastica. Such as College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota. There were two all-girl private academies called St. Scholastica Academy in Illinois and Louisiana, the former closed its doors in 2012. There's a few of these in the Philippines as well.

Stupid name really... she might as well be a total nerd altogether.

Continuing the tradition of comments on this name on March 8, I would say in the 21st century this would stand out... a little too much. Although maybe not that bad of a name, it is simply over the top.

I think this is a beautiful name. I took it as my Confirmation name after St. Scholastica. I know it can sound smart or snobby based on today's culture but, it is very sophisticated, a quite lovely actually. Admittedly a bit of a mouthful but, nicknames like Sola or Lassie can shorten it.

In theory, this should be a nice name: it flows well, it has an interesting meaning, and it has many potential nicknames. However, because of the name's resemblance to the word scholar, and because of the publishing company, this name seems somewhat tacky and forced to me.

I don't like this name. It sounds weird and is very close to the name of a publishing company!

I don't care for this name. It sounds like the publishing company and the words "scholar" and "elastic". Plus, I find it way too religious.

I would've loved this name if it wasn't associated with the words scholastic and scholar.

When I first saw it it reminded my of the word 'scholar' but when I tried to pronounce it, it sounded like the publishing company.

I wouldn't name a kid this. I'm sure that they'd be teased, and people may not take them seriously. It really does sound like the publishing company. When I first saw it, I didn't even think it was a real name.

I'm not a fan because it reminds me of the children's book publisher Scholastic. I guess they both come from the same source, but still.
