Horace was my father's name so I like it. I have no children to name after him, but I have cats. One is named Horace, and another is named Frances after my mom.

I really like Horace. It’s a strong and distinct name with a good historical association. It also isn’t one you hear everyday, and is classic, not trendy.

The Diary of Horace Wimp is a song by Electric Light Orchestra. The lyrics take us through a week in the life of an oppressed man who nevertheless overcomes his shy nature with the help of "a voice from above". He defies the odds and gets the girl.

It's a good song and the reason why the name Horace is a good name IMO.

Very pompous, elitist, and butt-ugly! I would have a very low opinion of parents who name their son this, and I'd be partly angry, partly laughing with a red face, if I heard a parent shout: ''Horace, get here!''

Horace is the name of a cat who dies in Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" The vet-repairmen think he's an electric animal, but he turns out to be real. :(

There was a character named Horace on Doctor Quinn, Medicine Woman. He wasn't terribly bright, though he was a nice enough person and fell in love with a prostitute despite her past.
