I find Adam a very masculine name. Its Biblical originality also brings it a lot of meaning.

I gave this name to my 5th son, he is Adam John. It is such a solid boys name. He is 5 1/2 and loves the biblical reference to his name. He often gets the nickname Addy, and I don't know of any other boys named Adam.

I don't like this name too much. A strong name but I can't put my finger on what I don't like about it.

I can't believe this was the first human name ever, it doesn't seem old-fashioned at all compared to other biblical names. Anyway this is the name of my brother-in-law's brother, well stepbrother. People with the name Adam like to be silly but are funny.

It doesn't say in the Bible that Adam was his name. Adam means "man" and that's what the Bible said. God created a man, but never gave him any name. And then it has become Adam.

I think it sounds simple, strong and masculine. And that makes it one of my favourites.

For the one who said that Adam didn't sound "old-fashioned enough," what about the other Biblical names that were given at about the same time as Adam? There's Eve, Cain, Abel, Seth. In the centuries that pass in the Old Testament, and especially as differing languages developed, of course the naming styles changed! It just happens.

Those are the 4 sides of horizon.

One famous bearer of this Adam Gontier, the lead vocalist for Three Days Grace. Whenever I hear this name, I always think of a very masculine, good-looking man who's very deep and complicated.
-- Katkittycat  12/22/2007
The name Adam is older than many of the languages you have mentioned therefore it cannot be origin to these languages (Russian, German, Polish, English, etc.) My research for the name Adam had led me to the Muslim Holy Book "Quran" where the name "Adam" has been mentioned several times. From the Arabic language the name "ÂÏã" "Adam" is spelled and pronounced as in the modern English language today. It was given to the first God created-man. Therefore since the Arabic language is much older than many spoken languages today plus it belongs to the ancient language group of Assyrian and Hebrew, I believe it's worth it to mention it on your web site.

Adam is so plain and boring.
-- jasmineenimsaj  2/15/2008
I think Arabic or Muslim should be added to the usage list, as Adam is a popular name amongst Muslims. It is generally pronounced AA-dem though, with a somewhat longer a sound at the start. The meaning is entirely the same though, and refers to the first man on Earth. (Many Islamic prophets are also Biblical characters - e.g. Isa/Jesus, Ibrahim/Abraham, Marian/Mary). [noted -ed]

This name is a very pretty name for a boy. It's a name for a boy who's strong and handsome and grows up to be a romantic gentleman. I had a brother named Adam, but he died at 9 months. I would love to give this to my boy if I ever have one. It would most likely be a middle name.

You people! I can't believe you actually like this name!
1. A-dumb (nickname)
2. Adam and Eve (can be teased)
3. It's WAY TOO POPULAR THESE DAYS!
Please make it stop!
-- X_XemogurlX_X  5/5/2009
My name is Adam, and I never was called A-dumb, nor was I ever teased with references to Adam and Eve, so using that as a basis for disliking the name isn't very reasonable; unless your name is Adam and you're speaking from experience. Normally I was called Addy growing up.

My name is Adam, and I personally love the name. For years I hated it, but finally I got older and looked at it objectively and I realized I liked it a lot. It's traditional but I've only ever known a handful of Adams, so I disagree with those of you who say it's too common. Maybe at one time, but it hasn't been on the most popular list for years. It's a good, solid name that was nice to grow up with. I'll probably use it as a middle name for a son, and I'm glad my mother named me Adam.
-- sonofman  12/31/2009
It is a nice name a boy could grow up with.

Well, I always think of sexy Adam Cartwright from Bonanza. Yeah, yeah, he was mentioned, but he needs mentioning again. Most of the Adams I've encountered were nice, well-liked guys. It's a strong name that works on a kid and ages well.
-- Anonymous User  7/26/2010
It sounds sexy! I love it! ;P
-- Anonymous User  8/18/2010
Sorry, but this name sounds and looks kinda like A-Damn like you don't give a damn, so I don't really like it, and it's just ugly, I don't even like the sound of it. Oh well.

Also makes me think "Up An' Atom". Sounds like Atom: the basic unit of matter that cannot be divided into smaller units, therefore it's the smallest unit of matter.

There isn't anything that strikes me as remarkable in this name, but considering that I am a long-time fan of Bonanza, Adam is one that I can see potential and subtle charm in when used well. It is a tried-and-true name; sturdy, functional, and with a nicely sooty and determined sound.
