Gomer Pyle was the dim-witted army private in the old T.V. show of the same name. He was played by Jim Nabors.

Gomer Pyle is also on the Andy Griffith Show.

My friend and I did a study of the name Gomer. It means more than complete. The ORIGINAL hebrew meaning actually means completely as in over or done, failed or failure; not just complete.

Gosh, this is one butt-ugly name. It sounds like the name of some cranky old man, and it reminds me of Homer, and thus Homer Simpson, too much. I can't imagine this very harsh and masculine name on females.

This sounds like the name of an old man that shoots kids off of his yard. Can't imagine it being a girl's name.

Pronounced Goh-mehr.

This name never really struck me as being all that feminine, even though it's used as a girl's name in the Bible. Nonetheless, I like the name because of its association with what I consider to be a very romantic story. Way to go, Hosea!

On another note, Gomer is one of the sons of Japheth, and is the ancestor of the Ukrainians (among others).

I would never name someone Gomer. The child would be made fun of. It's too "southern" and is ruined by the tv character Gomer Pyle. Just my opinion.

I'm learning Hebrew, and the spelling of this name appears to be an exception to the rule that vav following another letter indicates the vowel o or u, while the absence of vav, yod or ayin indicates that the vowel (if present) is either a or e. Also, in Hebrew, this name is pronounced go-MER.
