The placename "Gordon" is found in Scotland and also in France, where it is written "Gourdon". The "don" part is Celtic, or pre-Celtic, and means "hill". The "gor" part is thought to mean "enclosed" (same origin as "garden", "garth" etc). So the whole word means "fortified hill", which corresponds very closely to the places with that name.

The name Gordon makes me think of friendly 40-something guys with beards for some reason.

It's my boyfriend's name, and it suits him down to the ground. He's quirky, artistic and funny and I can't imagine him with a more common name like Tom or Kevin.

I used to not think very much of this name. However, now I've gotten rather fond of the name, and may well consider it if I ever have any offspring later in life.

Gordon LaChance (Gordie) is the name of one of the main characters in the movie "Stand By Me" and the novella on which it is based, "The Body" by Stephen King.

I also new a kid in elementary school named Gordon. I think it's a very strong and interesting name.

This name first makes me think of the stuck-up train in the Thomas the Tank Engine show, and then makes me think of a stuffy rich snob. I really can't imagine anyone but some upper-crust rich guy having this name.

I kinda like this name, it's not very common and it's not too grown up for a little boy because you can call them Gord or Gordy/Gordie. I think if I have a son one day I might give him this name.
