I can't stand this as a first name. Very pretentious. And what would the guy be called for short? Ham? Milton? Milt? I hate them all. I have never even liked the surname.

In Sweden, this is a surname which only those who belong to the nobility are allowed to avail themselves of. You have to gain permission to register yourself as a Hamilton.

This is my dog's name. I named him after my favorite actress, Margaret Hamilton (Wicked Witch from "The Wizard of Oz"). I call him Ham, Hammy, or Hazmilton (not sure how that one got started...)

I was planning on perhaps giving this to a future son as a middle name, until I got Hamilton. There is nothing pretentious about it. It's lovely with or without a personal meaning.

I follow a gentleman on Tumblr who has a daughter named Hamilton and calls her Ham for short. It's interesting to see more names becoming unisex.

I kind of love this name, simply because of the association with the musical Hamilton. This is also why I love the name Lafayette. I'm extremely musical obsessed, and it's how I find some of my favorite names.
