We would mostly remember this name from Jonathen Swift's masterpiece "Gulliver's Travels". The main character is Lemuel Gulliver.

I don't like it. It sounds like a hick name to me.

I don't know how you guys think this sounds like a hick name, the only person I know with this name is black.

It does sound like a hick name. Or someone saying "la mule" in spanglish. I just picture a very unattractive person with a piece of straw in his mouth.

I used to like this name but it makes my skin crawl now. And now that I think about it it does sound like someone with a piece of straw hanging out of his mouth.

Lemuel is a lovely name with a wonderful meaning. Lemuel would make a great middle name, but it sounds too uncommon for a first name.

The only reason why I know this name is because in the computer game The Oregon Trail II, there are posters all along the trail for fictitious cattle rustler and murderer Lemuel Knapp. Lemuel is a perfect outlaw name!

I actually like this. I guess I love hick names. It is a nice underused biblical name and not as weird as someone made it seem.
