I'm Brazilian and I think this is kind of overused. But I still like it, since it was my grandfather's name, and is my little brother's.
I think this name has a far greater sound that I find pleasant and elegant. It is a distinguished forename that, although popular in the Spanish speaking world, can effectively be introduced anywhere as it does not require further verification on how to spell nor write it since it is simple. A definite charm of a name variant for Peter.
I loathe this name more than any words could ever explain. It's cheap, horrible, ugly and unattractive.
This name is for GIRLS!

You take out the R and yeah, it may get said as "Pay-do" but it is also an English word. A very bad one at that.
