If not for Elmer Fudd, this would be an ok name. It has a really cool meaning.

This sounds like the name of an old whiny-voiced farmer, don't know why. It has a cool meaning, though.

I like this name, even though to many people it gives the connotation of a farmer in overalls, chewing on hay. I think it has a nice sound and a good meaning, and people should get past the idea that it is a "hick" name.

A feminine form of this name can be Elmira, pronounced el-MEER-a.

It makes me think first of Elmer's Glue, unfortunately. The meaning is really nice though, but I keep picturing the glue-bottle in my head when I hear the name.

This is a really nice name with a great meaning, in my opinion, and would be highly usable if it wasn't for Elmer Fudd and Elmer the Patchwork Elephant!

I dislike this name somewhat. Whenever I mention this name I always think of that Elmer Fudd who, I reckon, was a rather dislikeable character over the years since his creation and that of his arch-enemy Bugs Bunny.

Elmer's Glue is the basic school glue. The product is so named because the mascot (a white bull) is named Elmer.

I don't like this name because it sounds ugly and is kind of old-fashioned. And who doesn't instantly think of Elmer Fudd?

I actually like this name, but I won't use it due to the association with Elmer's glue and Elmer Fudd.

I only not dislike this name because it was my grandfather's real name. He made everyone call him Bob though. Other than that I would think it's totally dorky and old fashioned.
