The name Keith to me means STRONG, SEXY, SMART, FUNNY, ATHELTIC, and sounds like a name of an angel.

I cannot imagine Keith being a bad person. Maybe it's just because someone I know is a nice person, but I'd never choose this name for a bad man in a story.

Keith is such a powerful name, it is beautiful and heavenly. All the Keiths I've ever met were handsome and headstrong and had great charisma, intellect, and personality. This is a truly blessed name, full of life, love and destiny, all the raves to this name!

I am a Keith and know a few namesakes. The best are Keith Richards and Keith Moon - rock n roll legends! The sad ones are Keith Chegwin (now famed for his naked, drunken escapades) and Keith Harris (famed for his hand being lodged firmly up a duck's behind for the last 3 decades). Many a fictional Keith - most recently the big fat sad bloke in the office. Oh the shame. Cheers for finding my name SEXY and SMART. If only everyone felt that way.

Keith Urban is Australian, but sings country music in the US. How cool is that?

I love the name Keith! I especially love The Who's drummer Keith Moon. He's insanely good. Too bad he died.

I don't like this name, honestly. To me it sounds like a big mean prison guard. Though Keith Urban isn't too bad.

This is my Dad's name, and frankly, it's the only name in my immediate family that I really like. By immediate family, I mean the one I had growing up. While the name's not terribly unusual, it's not terribly trendy anymore, and never became popular to the point of over-kill. Some people think it's dated, but I disagree. Today would be a good time to use the name Keith for a baby because it's not as fashionable as it was 30-40 years ago.

I was born in Dublin at two in the morning during the worst storm in living memory, I am told I was named Keith because it was Gaelic for The Wind in English.

I found the Irish word Goath (the wind) which may be a source. Perhaps Gaelic “o” is sometimes sounded as “e” and “a” as “i”. Also I don’t believe there’s a “k” in Gaelic – hope this helps. The Scots wood idea seems intriguing – maybe their word for the sound of the wind in the trees?

So here’s a thought - if you’re fond of a Keith, no matter where you are the wind will whisper his name.

Apologies the word (Irish) “Gaoth” not "Goath" is wind. This from a Scottish – English online dictionary:

[gaoth] nf. G. Gaoithe; d. Gaoith; pl.+an, wind : gaoth tuath, north wind : gaoth deas, south wind : gaoth an ear, east wind : gaoth an iar, west wind.

This from a Scottish Gaelic pronunciation guide: g -velar (with tongue to soft part at the back of the roof of your mouth) for example, like the s in English so the “g” can sound like the “k” that doesn’t exist in written Gaelic (Gàidhlig)

I believe the “ao” dipthong is pronounced “ee” in Irish, so I’m pretty sure we’re close enough.

One thing I am sure of is this – I was given the name 50 years ago and I been blown all over the world ever since.

I just don't like the sound of this name. The only name with the 'th' sound I can think of right now that sounds nice to me is Ethan. Besides, this rhymes with 'teeth'.

Family Guy was correct when they say this was the most unattractive name in history because it sucks like really bad.

My youth director's name is Keith and everyone in the youth group thinks he's awesome. I've never heard anyone say a bad word about him. He's really nice, humble, funny, sincere... and he's just one of the most wonderful people you could meet. I think that's affected my view of the name. I can't really picture the name on a baby, though.

Keith is STRONG and MANLY. I like it and think it should be classic, not just trendy.

Not really a big fan of these kind of names. Rather dull and short.
