User comments for Abner
"Lil' Abner" was a comic strip that used to run in the United States. It starred Li'l Abner Yokum and was about dumb hillbillies.
The nosy neighbour's husband (the Kratiz's) in the TV show Bewitched is named Abner.
Abner Snopes is a character in Faulkner's famous story Barn Burning.
We named our son (now 8) Abner. It is an unusual name with a beautiful meaning (Father of Light) & interesting Biblical story. It is also the name of an intriguing Orson Scott Card character, Abner Doon (Dune?). It sounds very 1800s to me & was definitely more common then. My son really likes his name. I like it because it is complicated & meaningful & Hebrew. It is a little difficult for people, especially little kids, to say. My son used to tell people it was Ab-en-ner just so that they could say it. Now some of his cousins still call him that :).
