Forrest rose in popularity until 1994, when the movie Forrest Gump came out, and then its popularity plummeted.

From Medieval Latin forestis (silva), "outside (forest)," from Latin forîs, "outside."

I think it's safe to say that the movie Forrest Gump has ruined the name for good. It will always be associated with the movie and the dimwitted main character, and a boy named Forest or Forrest will get a few Gump jokes, and might even be bullied, especially if he has learning problems. It's not such a bad name otherwise.

My brother's name is Forrest. It suits him well because he's wild and loves nature. He was named after a t-shirt with a picture of Forrest Gump on it. Anyways I've always thought it was a weird name. Nobody believes me when I tell them that my brother's name is Forrest, they all think it's strange. A nickname for my brother is "Forr".

A fictional bearer would be Forrest Gates, a recurring character on the TV show Buffy The Vampire Slayer during its fourth season. However, like most African American characters on the show, he met a cruel and ugly demise. Poor Forrest.

This would be a very cool name if it weren't for that movie.

Forrest Gump has ruined it. I suppose it'd be okay on a character, but never for a child.

I personally like this name, my older sister plans on using this if she ever has a son. Don't think it's too big of a deal with the whole Forrest Gump thing.

I think it's time to bring this name back from the dead. Supposedly, the name's popularity only declined because of the Forrest Gump movie in 1994. This is a great name, and the movie came out almost 20 years ago. It's time for people to start using this again.
