I can't believe that no one's mentioned the comic strip! Garfield rocks!

This name sounds really pretentious as a first name, or would, if it didn't immediately bring the cartoon cat to mind. The poor guy would be teased mercilessly, especially if he was fat.

Who couldn't love the comic strips? I have always loved Garfield ever since I was little. I think it's interesting, though I couldn't see a modern-day boy with this name. More like a grandfather or a great-grandfather, but that's it.

A fat, lazy, cat comes to mind when I hear this name.

Garfield is a given name in my family (grandfather, father, brother), but the full name is only used formally. They go by "Gar".

I don't know what to make of this name. I mean, Garfield was a president's surname, which is possibly good (I am not familiar with American presidents as I am Canadian and have little interest), but Davis' Garfield is a double edged sword.

On the good side, he is witty while not being able to talk (through thought bubbles), and can easily put something over anyone he chooses, while on the other side he is very proud of being fat and lazy, which might be teasing material.

All in all, a name that should be used with slight caution and care.
