Clark Gable and Clark Kent. How could you go wrong naming your son Clark?

I love this name a lot. It reminds me of Superman, an inspiring, heroic character who always does the right thing, despite how much the recent movies try to prove otherwise.

Good, timeless, masculine name. It sounds intelligent and handsome as well, and there are no bad associations I can think of. What's not to love?

Yeah! Clark Gregg plays the awesome "Agent Phil Coulson" in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and in the Avengers. :)

Interesting first name. I wouldn't mind meeting someone with this name, but I wouldn't use it. It's definitely unique though, but not too weird or uncommon.

This name definitely has something. I like it.
First thing that comes to mind when hearing this name is Clark Gable.

Sounds a little pretentious, as sometimes happens when popular surnames are turned into first names. But pop culture has done a lot to swank it up with movie stars and superheros. I think it would be a great middle name for a boy or girl. Mixed feelings about using it as a first name, though.

My name is Clark and my middle name is Maynard. I'm a female. I think it's original for a girl to be named Clark. I usually go by the name Clarkie to make it sound more feminine. I'm very proud of my name.

Sounds a bit old and stale in modern times, but I still like it. It's an old family name of mine (of most people with English ancestry at some point, probably---I see it EVERYWHERE in people's badly researched medieval family trees, it was a common surname), and I do like it, but there's something about it that I don't like, at the same time.

"William Clark was an explorer of the west of North America. Another famous bearer was the American actor Clark Gable."

Clark Gables actual name is "William Clark Gable" and I have heard that William Clark didn't actually have a middle name. But I'm not sure about that.

There is a book titled "Love Comes Softly" (authored by Janette Oke) in which the character Clark Davis is the most WONDERFUL husband a girl could ask for! So sweet, so strong, and so smart! Based on that book, I love this name.

I like that Clark means "scholar" because I have put a high emphasis on education in my home. When my friend found out we were naming our son Clark, she said it was a nerd's name, but that nerds make good husbands. The Clarks I have known of were hardly nerds though. Clark Kent was Superman, Clark Gable a movie star, and my own very handsome and wonderful grandfather (who was also a wonderful husband to my grandmother) was a Clark and is my son's namesake. Donny Osmond's name happens to be Donald Clark Osmond, and he also was named after Clark Alexander Mickelson, the wonderful grandfather I mentioned above.

I think it merits mentioning that a modern American cultural icon, Superman, also bears this name.

Clark Kent (Superman) was given this name because came to the world to teach, just like Jesus. Superman was based on the bible, the story of Jesus on earth.
