I guess by itself Nell isn't so bad, but it's my middle name. My first name is Robin and my maiden name was Inman. So if you said my first name, middle initial, and last name before I changed it when I got married, it would be Robin N. Inman. It sounded like you had a stutter! Plus when I say my first and middle name people think I'm saying Robin Elle because there's no sound separating the N's in Robin and Nell
