"Percy reminds me of an old grandfather with a pipe in his mouth and always talking about his services in the war...not a very nice name for a child!" Jan. 6, 2007:
"Normally I don't like to say that a male name is too effeminate, but in this case it does, perhaps in part of the show called Black Adder. Percy was effeminate without necessarily being so sexually, just in mannerisms." Sep. 21, 2006:
