Famous bearer: Jeffrey Dahmer

I think JEFFREY is a great name for kids because it works well as an adult, too. I've got to say, some parents don't really give thought to what their child will be like when he/she is an adult.

Jeffrey is such a nice name. I am surprised it has died out of usage so much. The meaning, peace of God, is so nice. This is a great name to grow up with too.

Why has no one mentioned Jeffrey Archer (British bestselling author)? He is the best-known Jeffrey in the world.

I love this name and haven't heard too many people in my generation with it. All of the Jeff's or Jeffrey's that I have ever met have always been so nice and down to earth. I would name my son Jeffrey!

I really wish I had named one of my 5 boys Jeffrey. It is an awesome name.

This is one of my favorite boy's names, one of my closest friends is a Jeffrey but he prefers just Jeff. Yet, I don't think I'd ever name someone this name (a kid) because I don't think I'd like it very much if it weren't for Jeff.

My name is Jeffrey, and while I still have to use it for official purposes like my passport and medical notes, I don't really like it as I think it sounds raher stuffy and pompous, particularly here in the UK. I much prefer to be known as Jeff which sounds much younger, cooler and Frankly sexier, being in good company with men like Jeff Bridges, Jeff Loomis, Jeff Hardy. In some ways I wish I'd been born an American, as Jeff rather than Jeffrey is much more prevalent in the US.

This is my favorite spelling of the name. Jeffery looks like it should be pronounced with an extra syllable, and Geoffrey looks pretentious, outdated, and stuck up. This is pretty much one of those extremely safe names that you can't go wrong with, and it suits all sorts of guys. Of course, the name isn't very interesting, as it's overused.

I agree with the "overused" part, but I disagree with your comments of Geoffrey being pretentious and stuck up. It's the British spelling; there's nothing wrong with it! Next time, do the Brits a favor and don't insult the way they spell their names!

I don't really care for the name Jeff or Jeffrey. I think it sounds either, snooty, very homosexual, or childish. Sorry guys. I don't find it attractive. I don't have anything against homosexuals but certain names bring up certain impressions and that is my impression of the name. Worse yet are other spellings such as Geoffrey. This makes no sense to me.

My younger brother's name is Jeffrey, and I always call him Jeffrey, because Jeff, I think, sounds too much like Jiff. I really love this spelling, but I always get it wrong. I usually spell my brothers name as Jeffery, but I don't mean too. :\

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is an actor, who's famous for playing John Winchester on Supernatural, and for playing The Comedian in the 2009 film adaption of the Watchmen. I love this name. It's very nice, indeed.

I kind of see Jeffrey as a geeky name. I don't why, but I just can't help it.

All the Jeffreys I've known (quite a few) were extremely nice, slightly dorky guys. I think that's an okay fate to saddle your son with.

Um, Jeffrey Dahmer.

Sounds kind of wimpy to me, but maybe that's because the only person I know with this name is about 4,'10.

This is my friends name, and he hates it. I think it's a nice name, I don't know why people would dislike it.

Jeffrey is a cute name! =)

I like this name very much. To me it doesn't sound pompous at all, it's classy, strong and masculine. A great name for a man! I also like the nickname "Jeff" as well.

My name is Jeffrey and I have to say I love the name, although I prefer to be called Jeffy, Heffe or Jake.

My dad and great uncle are both named Jeffrey, so it's a family name. I'll probably end up giving my son the middle name Jeffrey.

I am a Jeffrey, born in 1967 when it was the 11th most popular male name in the US. My mother named me after Paul Peterson's character, Jeff Stone, from one of her favorite TV shows at the time, The Donna Reed Show. I've pretty much always gone by Jeff when meeting people, although I use Jeffrey for "formal" correspondence and social media. I've personally not been a big fan of the name throughout my life, but as time goes on and it becomes less frequently heard it has become more agreeable with me.

Other famous Jeff's/Jeffrey's not mentioned:
Jeff Dunham - Comedian
Jeffrey Dean Morgan - Actor
Jeff Goldblum - Actor
Jeffrey Tambour - Actor
Jeff Daniels - Actor
Jeffrey Wright - Actor
Jeffrey Osbourne - Singer
Jeff Foxworthy - Comedian
Jeff Gordon - NASCAR Driver.

Jeffrey Dahmer, the sadistic psychopath who dismembered and ate his victims comes to mind. Sick name.

As a Jeffrey myself, I absolutely love this name. Something about it just makes it stand out. It's a very unique name to me, but I am really biased here, so take my opinion with a grain of salt if you'd like.
GiJeff  1/12/2018
I want to like this name and love the nickname Jeff, but Jeffrey Dahmer is too strong an association for me to ever really consider this name. It also kinda seems like a name a white frat boy rapist who wears boat shoes and brags about his daddy’s lawfirm would have. Final nail in the coffin: Jeffy from The Ringer, played by Johnny Knoxville.
