I thought Herbert was a nickname for someone who is nice but a bit dim, like "he's a bit of a Herbert".

Herbert, along with its pet forms, sounds grandad-ish to me, in the same way that Gertrude, along with its own pet form Gertie, makes me think of old ladies.

I think there was some kind of pedophile on Family Guy named Herbert. Sort of ruined the name for me, but I still think the pet form Herbie is cute.

I've read some pretty immature things on this site, but under this name, I see no mention of Herbert Garrison, the homosexual teacher of South Park. Duhh.

The name has, not one, but two long schwa sounds, so it's not exactly a beautiful name. It's also very old-fashioned, and I'd probably burst a vein in my head laughing if I heard a parent shout: ''Herbert, it's time to go!'' It would sound quite pompous and pretentious, not to mention quite geeky, on a child today, and I hate the nickname Herbie.

Probably says something about me (mostly that I'm a nerd) but this will *permanently* be associated with Herbert von Krolock from the musical Tanz der Vampire.

I love the French pronunciation, but the English pronunciation makes me think of a creepy old man. I swear it's not just Family Guy.

H. P. Lovecraft wrote a short story titled "Herbert West - Reanimator" about a doctor obsessed with resurrecting the dead. It is notable as one of the first depictions of zombies as corpses arising, through scientific means, as uncontrollably violent cannibalistic creatures. A movie based on the story, called "Re-Animator", was produced in 1983.
