You'd have to be insane to name your son Jorma in Finland today. The name sounds very middle-aged and brings flabby and ugly, unpleasant middle-aged bozos to mind. Now, there are successful men named Jorma in this country, but I can't shake the association to a sleazy, greasy, chubby, annoying guy who gets abusive when drunk when I hear this name (no, not someone I know, just a general impression). Besides, this is just another slang expression for 'penis' in Finland, so it probably will not be used any time soon.

Wow do I have a different opinion of this name than the commenter previous!

I recently heard of this name from one of the members of the sketch comedy troupe "The Lonely Island" that also includes comedian Andy Samburg from SNL. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this name.

However, it totally does not strike me as a male name, it really strikes me as feminine. Traditionally I have learned this name is pronounced "Yorma" but the way the above-mentioned comedian is referred to, he is pronounced "Jorma" with the same J sound as in "Josh". To ME that rhymes with "Norma" giving it a feminine connotation.

I am almost 100% certain that I would name my girl child this, I absolutely love it, and it's definitely SO very unique, it would spice up our very common last name nicely.
