I'm a female named Jerri. Everyone asks, 'Is it short for Geraldene?' It's not! "Je" is my short name/nick name, Je same as in Jerri, Je without the rri, named after my father Gareld. No one ever spelt my name right except my parents and siblings, even my closest family spelled it Gerry, Gerri, or Jeri. I've never heard my father's name used in full always Jerry,.. I like Jerry better for Gerald and Je best and think Jerri in general is cute. I don't like it set up as Geraldene, it's just what I'm used to, like anybody who prefers anything based on their experience with it... I've met I think one Gerri female, also just Gerri, except with the G instead of J in my life, and that's about it no one else besides my father and I.

I actually like this name because of the sea lion from Finding Dory.

Say Gerald in a baby voice to child to teen, young adult, man, middle age and elderly man out loud right now. It’s called the age test that you should use for every name.

So I guess Gerald is okay.

I like the name. I think of a kind, gentle man when I hear it. I also think of President Ford. I hope it makes a comeback. I also named the father of one of the main characters on a Comic I'm writing, Gerald.

This is not such a bad-sounding name, and I think it's timeless and very usable. That said, I have a personal dislike for it since I just found out it's the given name of someone I dearly love. I have always known him by a nickname, and I was shocked to find out. If you name your son Gerald, he'll be deceptive (and probably a great singer)! ;)

My paternal Grandfather's name and my older brother's middle name. It's very masculine, mature, and strong, however, I prefer Ronald, which is my maternal Grandfather's name. Gerald is still a great name, though!

This name is quite common in Ireland among the older generations. My granda is called Gerald but he mostly goes by Gerry. I think Gerald is a lovely name.

This is my uncle's name, and its intended pronunciation is GARE-ald ("gare" rhyming with "ware" or "bare"). He gets called by the more common JARE-ald so often, though, that I think he's given up on correcting people.

Old-fashioned, but not a bad name, as long as you don't call the boy Jerry. I hate that name with a passion! So, it's Gerald or nothing.
