This topic was removed at another forum which I will not name, but problem was that the moderator failed to see how it fit in with "drug culture". So I decided to come to Hip Forums to post my question. I was going to post this under "random thoughts" but since the name I'm referring to would be one inspired by psychedelic trips (or mathematics), I thought "psychedelics" might be more appropriate. Since it was a long-ish post, I will just copy and paste it below. -‐--------------------------------------‐‐ I was thinking the other day about names for if I ever have a kid. I have searched and searched all over the internet and name databases and could not find one instance of the name "Fractal". It sounded quite stupid at first but the more I think about it the more I like it. It seems somewhat unisex, but probably more on the feminine side, despite ending with a consonant. Fractals are some of the most beautiful images/visuals that exist, so I thought it might be somewhat common as a hippy/flower child era name. Names like these seem to be re-emerging. Anyone have thoughts on this or know of anyone named Fractal? I'm interested in it mostly as a first name but I'd consider it as a middle name also. I wouldn't want my child being made fun of for having a strange name such as "Apple" (cough...Gwenyth Paltrow).
