I have always wondered why the name Harleen was among the Top 100 names in Canada for 2004. Now, I fathom that this was the feminine variation of Harlan.

Love it! I hope it continues to be unpopular, because I am gong to name my future son this, and I want him to be the only Harlan we know.

Even though I like it I think of the song "You'll never leave Harlan alive" whenever I hear this name. I like the song though. I recently watched a commentary about Harlan in Kentucky, it's beautiful there but not a great place to live with the crime and poverty. But then again Brooklyn isn't exactly the greatest place in the world and it's a super common name. I don't know if I'd name my child Harlan though, maybe I'd use it as a middle name. But definitely a great name.

This name will always have a special place in my heart because it was my great-great-grandfather's surname. Through him, I am a distant cousin of Supreme Court Justice John Marshall Harlan.

My name is Harlan Hobbs. I would assume as long as your "fame" was pointed out by a published source then this should count :) I recently found myself mentioned in an article entitled:

"12 Famous Disabled People Who Prove That Being Disabled Is Anything But Limiting:"
(9th down)
Hobbs is a Los Angeles-based artist who builds structures, usually some sort of robot or creature, out of assorted junk. He’s constructed, among other things, a (non-functional) robot from old car parts lying around his front yard and a dinosaur-looking piece called “Cinemasaurus Rex” from discarded film reels. His latest piece, ‘Maus Man, ’ is a Transformers-esque behemoth that he timed for the release of the latest ‘Transformers’ film; judging from the photos, Hobbs’ creation looks much more impressive than the film itself. He’s paralyzed from the waist down.

I am a artist who "creates art" in several different media. The 'Transformer' has moved on however he is being replaced with five new sculpts in my front yard:)
