This name can also (or more likely) find its origin in the Germanic/Norse word 'Ehre' which translates in English to 'Honor.' Combined with the Germanic/Norse word for king, 'Rik' (the origin of the subsequent German word 'Reich), 'Eric' means 'Honorable King.' This is a more probable origin/meaning, as the Germanic word for 'Ever' is not 'Ei, ' but 'Immer.'

Eric Birling (fictional) from the play An Inspector Calls put me off this name. But he's also the handsome prince Ariel falls in love with in Disney's 1989 The Little Mermaid.

I have always really liked the name Eric. It's simple and nice. My cousin is named Eric, so I don't know if I'll ever end up using it, but it's a great name.

Eric is a very cute name but one of the most annoying boys in my class is called Eric. I can not recall a Eric I've actually liked. I think it would be this disturbing fact that'd keep me from naming my child Eric.

My friend plans on naming her son Eric Killian. I am not a big fan of Killian, but it doesn't sound bad with Eric. Eric is a good name, in my opinion.

Another famous bearer is the blues guitarist Eric Clapton.

My dad's name is Eric John and I love the usage of two such classic names. Sounds to me like a knight in medieval times. Reminiscent of chivalry and all that jazz. Of course, I could just be biased.
-- leanerdnellalennelle  2/11/2008
I just love this name. It seems very manly, but simple. If I ever have children, I will definitely consider it.
-- BornOnRoshHashanah  3/31/2008
There's a Monty Python skit called "Eric the Half-Bee". It's about a guy trying to get a "fish liscence" for his pet "'allibut" Eric (which he pronounced "Eddic"). Eric is also the pet bee in the skit (a half-bee, he had an accident). Apparently the guy in that skit names all his pets Eric.
-- Pippin  4/15/2008
The name itself is okay, but almost all Erics I've heard or read about have been nasty people somehow, which is why I have grown to dislike the name.
-- slight night shiver  4/22/2008
Eric Idle (1943-), from Monty Python.
-- LauraKate  6/8/2008
Eric means "kingly", so I think this name really is connected to the word "king".
-- Evelyn---  8/1/2008
Whenever I hear the name Eric, I think of Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid. It's a short, sensible name. I prefer the name "Eadric," the name of a prince in 'The Tales of the Frog Princess' by E. D. Baker.

I like the name itself but I can only see babies to early 40 being named this, I just can't see a grandfather with the name of Eric sorry.
-- eilonwyrose  4/5/2009
See, I know this is a VERY common name. I myself think it is very manly. Plus, it's really simple and short. I'm glad it's not a long drag of letters or something along that. I think it's an excellent name to name your baby. For the weirdos who don't like the name, I think it's best not to flame on it!
-- X_XemogurlX_X  5/5/2009
I prefer Erik.
-- Anonymous User  6/2/2009

All of the Erics I have ever known have been Asian, so I can't really picture this name on any non-Asian people.

-- walesgal92  1/29/2011
This is my brother's name. My mother originally wanted to spell it Erik, but that was uncommon when he was born (the 1970s). Also, he was born very sickly and she didn't want him to stand out for being sick and having a strangely spelt name, so she took the traditional route. Then he got better. Haha.

But Eric is neither a jock nor is he Asian. He's a computer master who speaks to technology using his Jedi mind powers. That's what I think, anyway.
-- Book_Reader22  2/9/2011
I've gotten used to this name. After reading Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse series aka True Blood, I've fell in love with it. It's a very strong name and I do believe in the future one of my sons will be named this!

My son's middle name is Ayrik. It was a name I'd heard (At least in pronunciation) in the movie "Willow". I assumed that it may have used as a derivation of Eric.
-- Tannalas  8/21/2011
Eric is a strong name for a male. I really like the way it looks and sounds. I've been fortunate to know only good people with this name. I would probably hate it otherwise.
