I know a few Jewish people with first names as Yom Tov and Pesach. Perhaps, Shabbat is used as a Jewish name, though I don't know anyone with that name. But I have not heard of anyone named Shavu'ot, Succot, Roshashana, Chanukah or Purim, etc.
Is there anything special about naming people after these two names that I mentioned? Is there any reason why the others might not have been used?
Note: I'm not seeking as much an answer to the 2nd question, as it may be as simple as "school kids might make fun of someone named Purim".

- 1st names only. I know that there's a lot more variance with last names, and, I have heard some strange ones, lately ;-)
- Names should clearly indicate the Yom Tov or occasion, itself. E.g. - someone named Chag Hakatzir would qualify, but not just Katzir.
(I know that one of Israel's former M.K.'s (I think?) has a last name "Katzir" but that doesn't qualify for 2 reasons.)
