One of my college professors was named Earl Page. Now that is an interesting name/word combination, I wonder how the discussion went for naming him. He just went by Page, said he'd fail anyone who called him Earl if he heard it.

A well rounded name. Mostly used now-a-days as a middle name.

I have never seen any attraction that this name might hold. It sounds like throwing up, there's a lot of guys around here who pronounce oil very similarly, my middle school principal was named Earl and his voice was so high-pitched that when he spoke over the intercom he sounded like an owl hooting. And now it's a big laugh anytime you want to say goodbye to a man named Earl. "Goodbye Earl." Dixie Chicks and the poisoned wife-beater.

I must say that this one always struck me as something stuck up people choose for their sons. Also, people who like to appear fancier than they are might pick this name out of pretentiousness. The name is a title, for crying out loud, and quite old-fashioned and ugly as well.

An American comedy about a small-time crook called Earl who learns about Karma and tries to make up for all the bad things he's done in the past. Very Funny =]

You should add the name Earla as another alternate feminine name of Earl. I am told it is more popular in the South than in the northern United States.

This is another name that I despise. Definitely a redneck name. I've met two old white men with this name, both of whom are bad-tempered racists. It really sounds like the name of a Confederate type who tries to force his Baptist beliefs on everyone.

Because of the show My Name is Earl, I will forever associate this name with trailer trash.

It's not a bad name but it's really old fashioned, that's for sure.

Earl Brian Bradley is a former pediatrician from Lewes, Delaware and convicted serial child molester. He was indicted in 2010 on 471 charges of molesting, raping and exploiting 103 child patients. Some of the victims were as young as three months old. He was charged in April 2010 with an additional 58 offenses in relation to the abuse of 24 additional victims. He has been described by a number of reputable news outlets and commentators as "the worst pedophile in American history." Dr. Eli Newberger, a professor at Harvard Medical School and a pediatrician who has studied child abuse cases for almost 40 years, said Bradley's was "the worst pediatrician abuse case I've ever heard of." Bradley was ultimately found guilty on all charges and was sentenced to 14 consecutive terms of life plus 165 years in prison without parole on June 26, 2011. His conviction was affirmed by the Delaware Supreme Court on September 6, 2012.
