I kinda hate it as a name. So hippy-ish.

I think there was a girl in the Death comics named Donovan who's parents were hippies and she hated her name.
Haha. Well, this guy is about as un-hippie as it gets, so I guess I can get away with it. I doubt he has any real thoughts about his name, except that if you call him "Donny" he'll punch you in the head. ;3
It takes place in a fantasy universe roughly equivalent to the turn of the century, so yes.
