Good name.

This name only makes me think of Henry Ford, who, along with making trucks was also a notorious anti-semite. It's not an association to be proud of in my book.

I don't like this name as a first or last name, because as a first name it reminds me too much of the last name, and it's not a very good name either way as well. And I live in Canada, so I have a negative association with two politicians in Ontario with the last name Ford, and they're both horrible. And of course, the car. I love Ford Prefect, but that's the only positive.

Very last name-ish, and reminds me of the car brand.

Only good as a surname.

I like it as a surname (Like Gerald Ford, Henry Ford, Harrison Ford, Tom Ford, Betty Ford) but I can't see it as a first name. Also, there was a character in Hitchhiker's Guide called Ford Prefect.

Not a terrible name. Just makes a very bland first name. In my opinion, Ford works best left as strictly a surname.

Tolerable as a surname. As a first or middle name basis, it doesn't even SOUND like a name. If I met someone named "Ford" I'd honestly assume that was their last name or nickname.

This is a surname, it is too dull to be used as a first name.

I met a guy named Ford and I could never look at him without thinking about a car.

The name Ford was given to 170 baby boys born in the US in 2012. It sounds extremely out of place as a first name in my opinion.

I think this name sounds kind of cool but I wouldn't name a kid this because of the car association.

I recently met a little boy with the name "Ford." I kept thinking of a "Ford" car or truck. I just couldn't get past that image. It's not a name I would use for a child.

I hate this name because it makes me think of that racist industrialist Henry Ford.

In The Postman, a boy changes his name to Ford Lincoln-Mercury because he wants to drive cars.

I hate this as a first name. The car makes it a rather tacky name to use today, but it has surely sounded a bit pretentious for a long time.

Famous bearer: Ford Prefect, a character in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. This is not his real name, but rather the name of a car. He chose it to "blend in" with the people on Earth.
