O - "the", me - "not", ros/oron - "see" (the one who can’t see). The ancient Greek poet Homer legends says was blind.

How this is rated 'unintellectual' is beyond me, has no one heard of 'The Odyssey' or 'The Iliad'?

Actress Anne Heche has a son named Homer.

As long as people watch the Simpsons, using this name for your poor son is stupid. As long as commercial hip hop is glorified, the nickname Homie is bad. And without the character Homer Simpson, this name would simply be pompous and pretentious.

This name makes me think of Homer Simpson. I can picture Homer Simpson sleeping on the couch in his underwear. Not very flattering.

Apparently many scholars now believe that the writer Homer was a female.

I feel soooo sorry for any child that is named this horrible name. (sorry if this offends people.) I mean, come on! I know it's just a typical thing to say, but it's true: Homer Simpson is a great example of what the name Homer sounds like: lazy and sloppy. I've never even seen the Simpsons but I think that Homer is a bad name for any boy or man. And if your name is Homer, I'm sorry if you had to go through anything like being called names or something like that. I would call you like Homes or something funny like that. I don't think I would ever call you Homer. Sorry!

What a wonderful name! I feel embarrassed for those who associate this name first and foremost with a cartoon character - they're really only showing their ignorance.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Winslow Homer. Homer is considered one of the foremost painters in 19th century American, renowned for his landscape and marine subjects. The son of Charles Savage Homer and Henrietta Benson Homer, he was largely self-taught and is one of the preeminent figures in American Art.

Although this name's most famous bearer is probably Homer Simpson, Homer was also the name of one of the eight heroes in the Australian book "Tomorrow, When the War Began" books. In these books, Homer is brave and intelligent.

I think Homer is a beautiful, classy and intelligent name. It makes me think of a learned scholar (because of the Iliad/Odyssey association) or an honest farmer (like my great-grandfather). Another thing that helps is that was the name of Mickey Rooney's character in "The Human Comedy". Lovely yet underused name.

This is the name of my Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, so it naturally carries a wonderful connotation. It is wise, gentrified, and oh-so-much-better than the dreaded Aiden/Bayden/Cayden, etc. group of boys coming of age now. I would consider giving this name to my child, knowing that he has a namesake with much more prestige and history than just Homer Simpson.

Derives from Greek: "Ομηρος"< ομου+αρω =together+carry, because his work combines all kinds of knowledge.

Homer Hickam was a NASA engineer who wrote the bestselling memoir "Rocket Boys," which was adapted into the film "October Sky." (Obviously he's nowhere near as famous as Homer the Greek epic poet or Homer Simpson, the first two Homers that most people will think of when hearing the name.)
