Comments for LANCE:

I've always liked this name. It's also the name of one of the 'N'sync boys: Lance Bass (I pronounce it BAHss).

Lance Armstong is a great bearer of this name.

Lance is a good strong name.

Lance is a great name. It's strong, boyish and gentle. It isn't over used either.

Well, this is my name (not Lancelot, I don't know why I made that my username!). I can't stand Lance Armstrong or Lance Bass, but the name itself is actually quite nice, I think. It's fairly uncommon--although much-used names can be great too--and I don't personally know anyone else with this name. When my parents were trying to figure out who my patron saint was, the closest they could think of was Lawrence (LAwreNCE), which I think is cool. (I hate the name Lawrence, but St. Lawrence was cool.)

Lance Bass has ruined this name for me. :(

To me this name is Lance the Pants or Lance the dance, in other words a nerd. I'm sorry Lances!

One of the final four Pokemon Trainers in Pokemon Blue and Red was named Lance. He had dragon-type Pokemon, so I always associate the name Lance with dragons.

I always associate it with dragons because of that too. Nice though.

Lance is a very cool name for a boy.

Not to offend anyone, but the name Lance makes me want to gag. I just can't imagine what kind of a person would look down at their newborn son and go, "Huh. I think I'll name him Lance." Honestly, it's a so-so name for a grown man (still kind of icky to me, honestly) but I just can't see any sane person naming their kid Lance. I mean, "Lance honey, it's time for dinner!" or "Shh, Lance. Mommy's on the phone." To be frank, Lance makes me think of a stuck up pretty boy. And the name kind of makes me want to punch something.

My cousin just named her baby Lance and I was surprised. I don't particularly hate or love it. Just seems there are a lot better-sounding names.

Very nice name. I know one Lance and that's enough to say it's a great, cool name! ;-))

Lance 'Buddy' Franklin is a famous bearer of this name. He is an AFL player who plays for Hawthorn and was the 2008 Coleman Medallist. He kicked 102 goals to win the award.

My name is Lance, and it's not that good of a name in my opinion. It's not too common though.

To me, Lance always makes me think of an effeminate gay man. I think it's probably due to Lance Bass (who is gay himself). Not that there's anything wrong with being gay, but that's my main association with the name.

Lance Sweets is the psychologist on the FOX television drama "Bones."

This is the name of Australian AFL player Lance "Buddy" Franklin. He plays for Hawthorn and kicked over 100 goals last season.

Every Lance I've known has been a jerk, but somehow I still like the name. I guess because it's not overused.
-- GibsonGirl  1/20/2012
I used to really like the name Lance, but somebody I used to know by that name turned me off from it because he turned out to be a jerk. Plus there are a couple of gay celebrities with this name (Lance Bass from *NSYNC and Dustin Lance Black, who is a screenwriter for some movies). However, in a way I still like it because it reminds me of warriors and dragons too. Probably because people used lances back in the Middle Ages and there is a series of books called "DragonLance." :)
