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.

I think the name sounds funny, like you would name a kid that!

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").

The name Colbert originated in Normandy and was brought to England during the Normand Conquest of 1066. The last name can also be found in Scotland. The name means "bright champion."

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