Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
Mentioned to someone that I thought this would be a nice name for a son in the future, and the person I was talking to cracked up telling me it's only a name for a black man, which wouldn't be the case for me unless I adopted... But if you look at the history of the name you certainly don't need an African background to use it. Still, if you live in the US and aren't black and use this name for your son, be prepared for possible confusion.

It's a shame this name is so underused. I personally find it very attractive.

Sorry, but this name is very unappealing to me. It can be shortened to Jerry though, which is nicer.

I actually really like this name. It sounds simple and flexible, but also strong and masculine.

Jerome Squalor was the kindhearted but imcompetent husband of Esme Squalor in A Series of Unfortunate Events. He's a kind, and rich, if clueless guy whose wife is a brilliant, but evil woman who only married him because his home stands over a secret passageway underground.

Jerry was also named a "Living Landmark" by New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2002. His response was that it meant "they can't tear me down."
