I would name my kid after Stephen Colbert if it wouldn't get me so many confused stares.

The name is of French and Germanic origin. Stephen Colbert uses the French pronunciation of the name ("kol-BER") but has stated some of his siblings use the Germanic pronunciation ("kol-BURT").

It's his last name, but the man known for bringing the word "truthiness" back into common, everyday speech is known as "Stephen Colbert."

Stephen Colbert is actually of Irish decent, I wonder how that surname got there.
