Kurt Cobain often spelled his name Kurdt. If I ever named my son Kurt (Kurdt), it would only be because of him.

Another famous bearer of this name is Kurt Vonnegut, the author of books such as "Slaughterhouse-Five" and "Cat's Cradle".

An elegant name, I think of Kurt(s) as being very serious but not a wet blanket. I imagine them having either a German or French accent. I don't think you can be American and be named Kurt, that could just be me. Another Kurt is Kurt Wagner, aka Nightcrawler of X-Men fame.

Kurt also means "Wolf" in Turkish.

This is a beautiful legit name, but for the next ten years at least, it will be connected with Kurt Cobain. This is not necessarily a bad thing but it is a little depressing.

Kurt was used as the name of the younger von Trapp son in the movie "The Sound of Music". Kurt's character represented the real younger son, who was named Werner.

It's my brother's name! I chose it for him! Well I think Kurt is a cute name especially for a little charming boy! But it definitely doesn't suit a little devil.

Also Kurt Wagner, also known as the Amazing Nightcrawler! My favorite of the X-Men by far.

I would name my son Kurt after Kurt Vonnegut (famous author) or Kurt Cobain. I think this is a good name for a little boy or a man.

This name is too heavily associated with Kurt Cobain to be used anymore.
bananarama  10/9/2008
I don't associate it with Kurt Cobain at all, it's definitely not the first thing I think of, and I'm pretty sure it's still usable.
silly_rabbit  12/4/2008
The name is beautiful, it sounds masculine yet delicate. It is strongly associated with Kurt Cobain and will be associated with him - parents should decide whether they like it or not. I personally think that to name children after talented and kind people is a good thing.

My name is Kurt and I was named after a baseball player, "Dirty" Kurt Bevacqua who played for the KC Royals when my parents chose it.

I like this name, it's very masculine. Kurt Cobain isn't the first thing I think of when I hear this name.

Kurt J. Mac (or kurtjmac as he likes to be called) has been a major youtube personality since around 2011. He produces youtube videos in order to raise money for sick children, as well as to enrich himself, because he doesn't have a regular job.

Sorry to say, but I do not like this name. Without getting into any deep details, let me just wrap up my short statement by saying that I find this name to be very ugly and that I'm thankful it's not currently on the charts.
Just not a fan of "Kurt". Never have, never will.

Kurt is also a Turkish masculine name meaning "wolf". (Obviously, the Turkish name is completely unrelated to the English one.)
