Quite clearly the name Duncan is used to describe someone who is naturally weedy in nature. Tendency to be moody and depressed are also common traits amongst the oddballs that are Duncans.

My name's Duncan and I at least don't think that. But opinions vary.

While I find this name to be very handsome & distinguished I cannot get passed the 'Dunkin Donuts' association.

There is a town on Vancouver Island in British Columbia called Duncan and often you will hear people on the island refer to it as "Drunkin' Duncan". So that's what I think of when I first hear this name. It isn't a bad name all in all though.

My rabbit's name is Duncan and I don't know why I picked this name but I like it because it reminds me of donuts.

I really love this name. If I'll ever have a son I'll call him Duncan, either with his first or middle name.

I can't use it but it gives me joy to see others consider it. A regular contributor to babynamesworld thought this would make a fun girl's name. Seriously.

Colonel Duncan McKenzie, who was given command of Natal when it was placed under martial law on February 9, 1906, after twenty-seven Africans refused to pay the new poll tax, which quickly led to an uprising. He saw the martial law as a perfect opportunity to instill in natives "a proper respect for the white man." After the uprising was put down, he spent six weeks going through Midland chiefdoms, finding tribesmen reported to be "defiant." He burned villages and crops, confiscated cattle and deposed chiefs.

The only television character I know with the name Duncan is Duncan the delinquent from Total Drama Island. I love the name, too, and that's not just because he's one of my favorite characters on the show!

Duncan Hines (1880-1959) started out as a traveling salesman. He wrote a travel guide ranking restaurants (a new idea at the time) and later wrote a guide to lodging.

In 1953, Hines sold the rights for his name to be used on different food items, and he is best remembered today for the cake mix that still bears his name.

I really dislike this name. It just seems so whiny (possibly because of the character Duncan Kane from Veronica Mars). And I hate the way it sounds--it's like half of it gets stuck in the throat or something. It's just not appealing at all.

This name is growing on me. I used to hate the sound of it, but now I kind of like it. It sounds strong but not macho, and quietly secure in itself but not arrogant. But like other users have said, I can NOT get past the Dunkin' Donuts thing. So I guess for those of you who don't know what a Dunkin' Donuts is, uh, feel free to use this name, just don't move to New England any time soon.

I like it. Its very masculine yet simple. Lol and a lot of names have something tied to them. Dunkin Donuts is not the worst thing in the world. Other names have much worse tied to them.
