Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
One of my grandfather's names was Gary. (Actually, his real name was Gernard but he went by Gary). I like this name. A little old fashioned, but I can see it on a kid nowadays in a way.

This name is too old fashioned, and reminds me too much of the word "gay" and SpongeBob's pet snail.

My father's name, it is very old fashioned. I would be very surprised if a boy in 2016 was named this. I mean it's not terrible, but just dated. I think of Gary the snail :)

I like the name Gary. It has a quirky feel to it. I think of Gary Cooper and Gary Oldman when I hear it. It's sad to see its decline in Britain (Probably due to the disgusting sick pervert Gary Glitter). It would be nice to see a new generation of Gary's. Also, I named one of my characters Gary.

This name always makes me think of either Pokémon or Spongebob.

I don't hate this name. I do realize it's a bit dated and would suit an older male far more than a boy from an younger generation but that's not the main reason stopping me from actually using it. Gary. Take out the r and you are left with the word, "Gay".

I really have mixed feelings about this when it's an independent name, just like Harry, Barry, and Larry,

Kind of rough sounding, I think.

I find this name so darn cute! :D Although... I can't help but think of the character Gary Oak whenever I hear or say this name... lol.

I actually think this is a very cute name for a little boy that can grow with him and won't sound ridiculous as an adult name. I'd rather meet a little Gary than a little Aiden/Kayden/Jayden any day.

Gary Lee Weinrib is the real name for lead singer, and bassist for the band Rush.
His nickname was Geddy for a very long time. So when it came time to make a stage name, he took his nickname, then took away his last name, becoming Geddy Lee.

It's too nickname-y for me, even though I know that's not the case. Don't care for it.

Ever since I began watching Spongebob Squarepants on Nickelodeon, it makes me think of Gary the snail. But I never much cared for the name anyway.

One of the most famous and the best name bearer for 'Gary' is Gary Wayne Vernon- stage name Gary LeVox, lead singer of Rascal Flatts! He is the best country singer in the whole world, and the best singer in the whole world to me!

This name has some positive connotations to me, as it is the name of one of my uncles. However, I wouldn't use this name. Not only am I not particularly fond of its sound, I also think it looks as though it's supposed to be short for something.
Pippin  7/23/2008
I can't stand this name. I hate it, like I hate Barry and Larry. All these names make me think of annoying, obnoxious, possibly loud-mouthed middle-aged American men who like to tell sexist jokes and laugh very hard at their own brilliance. Also, the names Gary, Barry, and Larry make me think of the same type of guys telling all sorts of generalizing stories that are supposed to prove some type of ''realities'' that many people can't relate to, and who think they are right about everything they believe about human nature. So no, I don't like the name, and naming the boy Garrett would be much better. British guys named Gary have often gone by Gaz and been more bearable, or that would be my humble guess.

It's true, my boyfriend is a Gary and he is obnoxious, he does laugh loud, even at himself, but these are some of the things I love so much about him. I guess it's all in your personality preferences... I love my Gary! =)
