I wouldn't like this name for a child. But for a character it is okay.

Haha! Can you imagine being named Elmo? I mean, it would be awful. Everyone would tease you about the red furry Elmo from Sesame Street.

Now that Elmo means a red, furry (sometimes obnoxious) little monster from Sesame Street, who would want to name their child Elmo? I'd be the laughing stock of the school if I was named Elmo or Barney.

I like this name a lot, but a child named Elmo would be teased severely. Oh well, maybe as a middle name.

I met a GIRL once named Elmo. It's bad enough for a boy but on a girl? Those parents were out of their minds!

Sesame Street, do you remeber that song (in Australia) it was an ad a few years ago, it would make any little kid called Elmo feel great. It was like the YMCA song, but it was ELMO it went E.L Mmm. O ELMOoo.

I met a girl with this name once. I've always wondered what her parents were smoking the day they named their baby.

This is the last thing I'd name my kid! This is a terrible name for a child. It's already been used on the character everyone knows. (no offence to anyone who has this name)

Ahh. It's kinda cute! Haha! But they probably would get laughed at! Oh well, I still love it!

I LOVE this name! I don't think a kid would get made fun of if they had this name. If they did, it's probably because other kids would be jealous because they have all those terribly over-used names. And actually, I think it sounds nice on either gender! :D

This name is too heavily associated with an annoying red Muppet to be used anymore.

This is the name of one of my pets (a parrot). It fits him very well. His first word was Elmo. I think it makes a sweet name for a pet. Not sure if I'd use it on a human.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Elmo from Sesame Street! But it's not something I would ever name my son (or daughter).

The German pronunciation is EL-mo as well. [noted -ed]

Only name your kid this if you want them teased to hell and back.

Elmo from Sesame Street, the famous children's show.

This name could work... if ya live in Antarctica.

This name is also used in Finland, where it's often associated with Juhani Peltonen's novel Elmo, where a man named Elmo, among other things, becomes a heroic athelete.

The fun, beloved red puppet is a better association than Oscar the Grouch, yet Oscar is popular (at least in Europe), while Elmo--a much more pleasant-sounding name--is not. It's too bad. Hopefully, this will change over time.

This name is not stupid and childish. Those of you who have that name, don't mind all of those other people. Your name is wonderful.

Ugh, this world. Everything needs to be associated with something...
Look, it's a fine name!
