Personally I quite like the name. It's not bad to name your son this in modern times I think. It has a lot of character and is quite nice to say.

Okay, I'm just going to weigh in here. My son is named Orville and while not my first choice of name, I kinda like it. I'm English and I've definitely never met anyone with this name over here, but my husband is American, from the South, and it was a name he recognised. I refused to call our kid after any member of our families, which is kind of a Southern thing I wasn't comfortable with, but I was fairly happy to go along with this name because it's got history for him. YES I think it's a little old-fashioned but so what, it makes my son unique while not being weird enough for people to be mean about it.
A hideous old man name. Unacceptable for anyone under the age of 95, and even then a different name would be preferable.
Sounds like the name of a fictional creepy town.
