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

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.

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

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