Personal experiences with the name Django: | Edit

First of all, children are cruel. I was made fun of my entire childhood. In high school, I changed my name to Jean (unbeknownst that Django's real name was Jean-Baptiste). Only my closest friends new my real name. Now, as an adult, I get many compliments on my name. "Oh how unique", or "wow that's a beatiful name" Until I found this website, I had no idea my name meant anything. I awake. How cool is that!?
-------------------------
I have met two families of musicians now who have chosen this name for their sons. In this day of "unique" names no one bats an eye at a kid named Django-- unless they are musicians too. Then they rave about how cool it is!
