The comic strip Peanuts is what made me think of it. The names Charlie, Lucy, and Violet are all back in style, and I think Sally and Frieda are in our near future. Schroeder is a possibility for parents looking for something truly uncommon.
- The name has a pleasing association in Charlie Brown's friend Schroeder, a sweet and sensible piano player.
- It sounds a little like the already familiar Schuyler/Skyler---though it's a soft c rather than a hard c.
- It has the popular "er" ending, as in Archer and Tanner and Tyler and Carter and Cooper and Hunter and Parker and Sawyer.
Unlike the name Brando, this is a name I'd like to use myself if it worked with my surname, which it doesn't. What do you think of it? Would you use it? Whether you like it or not, do you think it has Name Potential?
