Comments for EARL:

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.
