My husband's name is Garland. And It is an older unpopular name. But I believe it is a Very Strong, Manly name. It was passed down to him from his grandfather. He also has a very unique and rare middle name, "Randolph". Although I at times tell him he has a Christmas name, Garland is a tree trimming item, and Randolph is so close to Rudolph. I just like to tease him. He is my festivities. And I love his name.

My friend's little brother's name is Garland. Everyone calls him Gar. Poor kid, he wants to play guitar in a heavy-metal band.

I think the name is very unique, and I like it, but I keep on envisaging a Garland of flowers, so I can't really say it's too masculine, despite the fact that it sounds strong.

I know a girl by this name, named for a Garland, as in a Garland of flowers. Her second name is Peony.

The Judy Garland association would probably make this a difficult name to live with, as she is a gay icon, and I bet many kids in school would be aware of it. Not good in this world of heterosexist tyranny. The name sounds quite pretentious as a first name.

The Judy Garland association would be fantastic. She was a GREAT singer and a GREAT actress. She is not a gay icon. Whoever said that is stupid. I love this name. :D And I had an uncle "Gar" so I don't see what is wrong with that name? It's fantastic. I love it. :)

During the late 1700's, there was an infamous Irish family of assassins bearing the last name Garland. They were banished later that century.

I have to say I'm not too fond of this name. A garland is something you trim a Christmas tree with, and school kids can be cruel.
