Even before I ever saw The Beverly Hillbillies, this has always seemed to me a rather redneckish, unsophisticated, backwoodsy sort of name. I've come to notice that's also the impression the general public gets from it, probably in part due to the movie's popularity, but true all the same. In the South or Midwest, it might be the object of minimal ridicule, but in most parts of the US and Canada, it seems to come with this negative stereotype, and I would personally advise against choosing this name for a child.

I like this name. There is really nothing wrong with being named Jethro. To me it sounds more modern than "redneck". I mean if you name your kid Jetrho, it'd be cool to call him "Jet". So this is a great name, nothing to be ahsmed of.

The character on NCIS that beth16 is refering to is actually named Leroy Jethro, but goes by his middle name to most of his old friends.

A good nickname would be Jett or Jet.

This is my favourite boys' name of the moment. Unusual but has quite a contemporary feel - I feel like it's only a matter of time before we get our first celebrity baby Jethro and the name rockets. It would suit a sexy guy!

This one has a bit of a hillbilly reputation, and it does rather seem like a name very annoying Christians would choose for their son.

Jethro Hallam Creighton is the main character in Across Five Aprils, a story set during the civil war.

I think Jethro is a cool-sounding name. I like the fact that it is Biblical and that there's a band called Jethro Tull (I don't listen too much to them, but I like a lot of names that are associated with bands). I wouldn't name my kid Jethro, but I'd definitely use it in a story.

I really don't get why people find it a redneck name. To me, Jethro is the farthest thing from it. It sounds cool and sophisticated, though I wouldn't really use it on a child.

Jethro Cane is the name of a character from the Doctor Who episode "Midnight".

To me, personally, it sounds like "death row".

I knew a dog named Jethro once, so that kind of makes it seem weird to me that it'd be a people name. But I think I'd still think it was weird even if I didn't know a dog with this name.
