Comments for CONNOR:

I love the name Connor. It feels like it has that Irish feel to it.

In my family of Scottish descent we pronounce this Con-nore.

This is my baby brother's name and I have adored it since long before he was born. This name has been a long-time family name on my father's side of my family of proud Scottish descent. We pronounce this name Con-nore and do spell it Connor. I personally like the spelling Connor best, preferring it to other spellings such as Conner, Conor and Konnor. I do belive that Conor is as this site shows a variant of the name Connor. I find this to be a nice strong even hearty Scottish name, and I was sad to see that under usage Scotland is not even listed! Admittedly it does have a rather Irish ring to it as well, and it seems to me most name can be said to be English in usage, the English seem to recycle many names and ideas from cultures and languages all around the world finding ways to make them their own even by way of reinvention.

I love this name! It is very Irish and I love the name Connor Patrick!
-- poetic_freedom  2/2/2006
Another meaning of it is also 'a strong will'. It is also a name of many of the great ancient kings of Ireland.

I think Connor is a beautiful girl name.

This name rocks, I love wolves so it is perfect for me.

Connor is a great strong Irish name. No wonder it is so popular.
-- Anonymous User  4/26/2006
Lovely old name. Best spelled Conor.
-- assumpta  4/26/2006
I prefer the spelling "Conner" (my grandmother's maiden name) but I prefer the pronunciation "Con-nore".

I know Connor to be spelt like so: Conor. I don't believe my spelling is a variation, I believe it's the actual spelling and I hate it being spelt any other way. I also pronounce it Con-er.
-- Clodagh  2/13/2007
Oh please. The ACTUAL spelling was originally Conchobhar. Conor, Connor, Conner etc. are really just modernisations and anglicisations.
-- Anonymous User  6/1/2007
Conchobhar? If you have any vague idea of how Irish is pronounced you would realise that you could never pronounce that as Con-er. You're just assuming that because it's what you are being told.

Also I thought it was Diarmaid who falls for Deirdre. Or maybe he falls for someone else.
-- Clodagh  6/25/2007
I did NOT say it was pronounced exactly the same as Connor. I'm just saying that it was the original version and it has changed, but that there isn't really one specific modern version that is more correct than the others.

Connor Hawke is the second Green Arrow, Ollie's son. Sweet, strong name.
-- alexyasha  2/22/2007
I don't really like this name. It's sort of boring and becoming too popular for my taste.
-- Anonymous User  2/24/2007
My name is Connor and I am a girl. Aside from all of the junk mail addressed to MISTER Connor Voss, I like that I have a guy's name. I've never really appreciated my name until recently; I'm so glad my name isn't Mary or Abby. I like that my name is out of the gender and out of the ordinary because so am I!
-- Corn  3/12/2007
OK. Connor is a male name. Connor was the name of Irish KINGS. I know a MAN named Connor O'Reilly. Are there NO male names left for just males? Why is it OK to name girls' typically boys' names, but usually considered effeminate and stupid to give a boy a typically girls' name?
-- Anonymous User  4/30/2007
I love this name for a boy, but I don't like how it's become so popular. I hate how names can get so trendy.

Also, it reminds me of Lacie Peterson, because her unborn baby was to be named Connor. So even though I like it, it makes me sad. :(
-- joanie2007  7/30/2007
In Ireland, when a man was charged with bestiality they banished him, branding him "Connor".
-- Anonymous User  8/13/2007
I absolutely love this name! It's my brothers name (I got to help think of his name) and plus I like dogs and LOVE wolves that's kinda why I wanted him to have this name.
-- prettnames24-7  9/26/2007
Trendy name that shallow parents give their kids. The result of Irish trendiness. Do real Irish people actually name their kids Connor? Or perhaps I should ask whether they did so prior to 1980 or so, before everyone seems to have lost their minds in regard to naming children.
-- johann14  10/1/2007
Irish people do name their kids Connor (Conor/Conner). I know 5 off the top of my head that are all under 18/19.
-- Clodagh  10/27/2007
I know a few Irish senior citizens named Connor.
-- lucyskydiamonds  3/29/2010
I see a lot of people have views about the name Connor. I am a Connor and the name means "descended from high will". This relates to a William Connor possibly a king of Ireland at one time. Most Connor families have a William/Will/or Bill somewhere in the history. I love and am proud of my surname, it's not a fashion accessory to me.
-- andyconnor  12/2/2007
Connor's okay. The best anglicization is the traditional Conor. Connor is the form trendy in most places other than Ireland. This site has it quite wrong.
-- Anonymous User  1/26/2008
I know a girl that is named Connor, so it is feminine, too.
-- sheena6446  2/13/2008
This is a fantastic name. I'd use it myself if it wasn't overused. I see a sad future for this name: jocks, obnoxious frat boys, Republican congressmen, and mean sexist jerks named Connor. Well, I like the name a lot for now, and I think it sounds like the name of a mature, intelligent, rather handsome man with pale skin and dark hair. The name is good for kids andadults alike.
-- Anonymous User  5/19/2008
To whoever said "I see a sad future for this name: jocks, obnoxious frat boys, Republican congressmen, and mean sexist jerks named Connor.", that was really offensive because:
1) you assumed that ALL Connors would be turn out horrible.
2) you assumed that ALL jocks and and Republicans are jerks, which is not true.

The birth of the world's first test tube quintuplets is recorded in London, England. Alan, Brett, Connor, Douglas and Edward are the names chosen by parents Linda and Bruce Jacobssen.
-- Patricia Underwood  5/28/2008
This name is too trendy. The first time I heard it I didn't like it at all, but; now I'm used to it. I knew a cute, bright kid named Connor and this kinda made me change my impression. I think Connor makes a great middle name and I'd never give it to a girl.
-- KayeKiLa  8/13/2008
This is a brilliant name with an awesome meaning. The popularity doesn't really bug me. I personally don't like the idea of giving it to a girl, though, no offense meant to the girls named Connor out there.
-- CanadianChibi  4/24/2009
My name happens to be Connor and I'm a girl so I guess that makes it feminine too, huh? I read the other comments and I was beginning to think I was the only Connor out here! Whew! I didn't know the origin before, so it's pretty cool it means dog/wolf lover, since I'm an animal person! (Though, I am more of a cat person) It's cool too, because I actually got my name through the "Terminator" (Sarah Connor) and I'm part Irish, so it was kind of like, "Hey, what a coincidence!"
-- SadisticxRequiem  7/13/2009
How can anyone not have mentioned Connor Macleod from the movie HIGHLANDER yet?
-- gala  8/17/2009
I think Connor is more likely an anglicisation of Conchúr than Conchobhar. Conchúr is the Modern Irish form of Conchobhar. Either way, Connor barely resembles the original name.
-- Ailis  9/19/2009
I don't like this name. It's too trendy and it sounds babyish. Connor also makes me think of a spoiled white boy.
-- bananarama  9/30/2009
There is a demigod named Connor Stoll in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. He always steal things and plays pranks. He is the son of Hermes.
-- qserenity  3/19/2010
My oldest sister just had a baby boy and she named it Connor, which I think sounds so amazing. Her husband is pure Irish so this name really fits. I LOVE the name Connor!
-- GothicScarlett  7/7/2010
I find Connor to be a very masculine and preppy name.
-- Shahzadi  8/28/2010
Connor Temple is one of the main characters in the UK show "Primeval".
-- WCSAngel  2/9/2011
My opinion is pretty neutral (Closer to the line of "Like," perhaps moreso). But I do believe that for it to work it must be given to an appropriate bearer. I've met various Connors... of which, some have been horribly bad representation for the name, unfortunately.

It should only ever be considered for the male gender. "Connor" used on females is abominably unforgivable and hideous.
-- Francesca  6/12/2011
I love the name Connor. It's been my favorite boy's name for quite some time now, and I want to name my son this. I am only 13 and I could easily change my mind by the time I have kids of my own, but in the mean time, it's fun to crush on this handsome boy's name!

Yes, it is gaining popularity (it ranked #49 in popularity in the USA in 2010), but I wouldn't worry about it. IMO, people try too hard to be original. It's not too trendy that there will be three other Connors in his class, so if you are considering this name, I wouldn't be concerned about the popularity. (:
-- LittleSamGirl  8/3/2011
Connor has grown on me quite a bit. I still sometimes think "con man", but it's a good name.
-- Black_X  9/9/2011
Connor sounds way too much like the French swear word Connard (the f-bomb).

Connor Kenway is the adopted name of the protagonist of Assassin's Creed III.
-- geminibynature  6/11/2012
Well, it seems like I'm the only one here who doesn't like this name. It's wayyy too trendy and quite frankly sounds like a title given to someone who cons people. I don't see it aging too well either. I just don't understand its appeal at all.
-- Anonymous User  6/2/2013
Dear God, had I known 'Connor' would share his name with every fourth kid in his school, I'd have chosen a different name. Yes, it's a beautiful name, I just wish it hadn't exploded in popularity shortly after my son was born 15yrs ago. Ugh!
