"Thinking that it would be great to name me something unique, my parents somehow settled on Ebenezer; a name that somehow both sounds like something you'd see in a 17th century Iberian obituary, and a callback to 'A Christmas Carol'. Here's the thing, just because a name is not very common, doesn't mean it's a good idea to name your child. Find a nickname for Ebenezer; no really, what can you think of? Neezy? Eb? How about Scrooge? Because I have been called Scrooge more often than my own, actual, 19th century name that should have been left in the past, alongside names like Ezekiel, or Geoff.
In summary, Ebenezer is the name you jokingly give a houseplant,let alone anything with enough brain cells to recognize you clearly don't love it." Aug. 5, 2020:

"My 4 y/o son is named Ebenezer. We get lots of strange looks but, generally, only very positive comments. Occasionally someone will actually argue with me..."no, really, what is his name?" which I find too funny! :-) I just know I love it and can't imagine him as anyone else." Nov. 12, 2014:
