When I hear the name Kirk I first think of Kirk Douglas. Great actor, not bad looking either. Secondly, I think of Captain James T. Kirk of Star Trek fame. Both men have swagger, confidence, EGO (possibly unchecked) and a way with the ladies. So why wouldn't you want to name your son Kirk? He will probably be on the dramatic side though.

I suspect that Douglas 013 is a member of the Kirk Douglas family. Just saying... ;-) P.S. I loved Spartacus.

And yes, Kirk is a great name.

Love it. Wanted a short, simple name to call my son. Thought of Luke. So glad I didn't as 2 of my coworkers named their boys that the same year. Kirk isn't so common and sounded great with his first name Robert. Named after Dodger baseball player Kirk Gibson.

This is definitely an awesome name! I'm gonna have to add it to my list (: I think it's a really hot name probably because of my impression of any Kirk I've ever heard of has been really good looking and nice. Any how, it's a really cool and unique name, and I would definitely use it!

My dad's name is Kirk. It's an unusual sounding name, but not crazy and weird, which makes it memorable.

I really don't like this "name". It sounds so ugly and harsh. And in Scottish dialect, it's just the everyday word for church. "Ye go to Kirk much?" is "do you go to church often?" in Doric dialect. (I'm not Scottish, but where I live people speak in a similar dialect, so I can understand a'that :P).

No offense, but the name sounds very old-fashioned, and the sound isn't very pleasant either.

Even though the meaning is nice, I still wouldn't name a kid that.

To the person who said it was ugly, what are your reasons for stating that it's ugly? I think it's a sexy name.

By the way, the reason I said it was ugly mainly because of the IRK sound. But, that's just me!

If this isn't one of my favorite names, then this IS my favorite boys' name. It makes a kick @$$ first or middle name!

Very random, very awkward, and very comedic resident of Star's Hallow on "Gilmore Girls". Always seems to be an important member of every new odd committee that suddenly forms and has a different unusual job in every appearance on the show that makes him somehow coincidentally interact with the main characters.

In my opinion, one of the most lovable characters on the show (when I regularly watched the show, which I sadly haven't in a while, he was my second favorite character-- after Jess).

One of my favorites. Most Kirks I've met are cute and quirky (try saying that 10 times fast), and I'd definitely consider naming my child Kirk.
