Gaylord Ravenal is one of the main characters in the musical "Show Boat" (based on the novel of the same name; filmed multiple times, most notably in 1951 with Howard Keel in the role of Ravenal). It dates back to a time long before the word "gay" was used to mean "homosexual" - something which only became common in the second half of the 20th century.

Gaylord was the name of a toy "walking" dog introduced by the Ideal Toy Company in 1962.

"GayyyyyLORD! When you pull his leash, he'll walkity-walkity-walk with you! BARK! BARK!" (That song always plays in my mind when I hear this name. Not a kid of the sixties, just like to watch old toy commercials on YouTube.)

In Barbara Park's novel The Kid in the Red Jacket, the protagonist, Howard Jeeter, has a baby brother named Gaylord. (I had to read this for school when I was in sixth grade, and no one in my language arts class laughed at his name, for what it's worth.)
