The name Gilbert makes me think of a cute and very smart guy who is kind and thoughtful. I love the way it sounds and it never goes out of style.

This name is also the brand of a rugby ball, which is why I'd most associate this name with rugby.

I sort of like this name. I knew a guy named Gilbert aka Gil and it reminds me of a smart, athletic guy. It is also my nephew's middle name.

In Scotland the name Gilbert was picked up and used as the anglicised/normanised form of the similar sounding Gaelic name Gillebride (various spellings) which means servant of St. Bridget. Hence the name became quite popular in Scotland.

I had never liked this name because of the way it sounded - Gill-burt, it's just so unattractive. But then I saw the French pronunciation which is BEAUTIFUL! And it has such a nice meaning, too. So name your kid this if you live in France, but not the US please.

Gilbert is one of my favorite names and it sounds very masculine, more so than crap like Caden, Brayden, Cooper, and Tucker.

I really like this name! I think it's one of those older names that deserves a come-back. I am definitely going to keep this name tucked away on the mental list for a future son.

I think Gilbert is quite a nice name, and also an interesting fact about this name is that Saint Gilbert of Sempringham was the founder of the Gilbertine Order of monks, one of the only orders to exist solely within Britain. Sadly, as a consequence of this, the Gilbertine Order was abolished in the 16th Century during the Protestant Reformation. Overall, I think this is a historically interesting and usable name. :-)

Pronounced the American way, I think it's not a horrid name-certainly better than something like Jayden or Logan or Mason, if you ask me. But pronounced the French way (zheel-bair) I can totally see why it was so debonair during the silent film era! (On a side note, I have a friend who was called this in French class and I still prefer to call him Gilbert than his actual name because it sounds so good in French!)

It's a really dull name. No personality. I do agree with a certain user, it is better than a horrible name like Jayden, Logan, or Mason, but it's just bland. It would be a good name for a cat, though. It'd be a great name for a cat. Sorry if I offended anybody, if your name is Gilbert that doesn't make you a bad or boring person, I just think the name is.
