What do you Think of this Name?

This morning, I was thinking about one of Laura's blog posts. I don't remember what it was about or called, but in it, she used the example of a hypothetical baby boy named Kegger.

& when I thought about it, I realised I really didn't think the "K-" start & "-er" ending sounded so bad together. Actually, I quite liked the idea of a name like that. Of course, Kegger is not only not a real name, but with a word-meaning that is, no doubt, no good on a child. 

But I couldn't find any real names with that criteria with the Name Finder...

So I decided to come up with a name myself:

Kaegar

Your thoughts?

Note: I have no intention of actually using that "name."

There are quite a few names that fit the K beginning and the -er ending in the name finder:
Kaiser, Karcher, Keeler, Keifer, Keller, Kemper, Kenver, Kepler, Kester, Kiefer, Konner, Kramer, Krister, Kristofer (and multiple spellings), Kyler.

 

If you expand into the C making a K sound, results show:
Cadwallader, Calder, Carter, Carver, Casimer, Casper, Cassander, Christr, Christopher, Collier, Colter, Conner, Cooper, Copper, Corder, Coster, Coulter, Currier, Culter.

I didn't even bother with the -or, -ir endings as that could add up quickly.

Kaegar looks odd to me, and I want to say, "Aaarrrrrrr," like a pirate at the end.

Oh, sorry. I realised after I made this thread that I meant I found no names that I liked  that fit the criteria.

Kaegar sounds like Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire fan faction (a mashup of khal and Rhaegar, perhaps?).

Must admit, it made me think "cougar"!  But I could see it being used by people who like the style.

How would you pronounce it?  I'm thinking either Kay-gar or Kye-gar.
