Why is Percy a sissy name? Is there something about its sound that is inherently wimpy? Or were there a succession of Percys (Percies?) who minced their way through history, casting a stigma on the name? Percy Bysshe Shelly looked a lot like Bernadette Peters, but he apparently was a hit with the ladies. Maybe he was a poet, sure, but so is Bob Dylan, or so reports say. I don't get it.
Ernie ( a name usually only used these days by cabdrivers and short-order cooks)
