I didn't realize Marvin was the name of the cop who got his ear cut off in "Reservoir Dogs," but I've always associated Marvin with the guy in the back of Vince Vega and Jules Winnfield's car, who Vince accidentally shoots in the face when they go over a bump in the street, in "Pulp Fiction." Nearly the entire last third of the movie revolves around them cleaning Marvin's remains from the car and disposing of the body. I guess Tarantino likes to use the name Marvin for people who meet awful ends in his movies...

Stan Marsh's grandfather from "South Park" also has this name.

It appears that the German form of the name derives from the old high German words "mari" (famous/great) and "wini" (friend).

I'm a little surprised that no one has mentioned that one of the most renowned rock artists of our time, Marvin Aday (better known as Meat Loaf), bears this name.

I really love this name. It sounds adorable for a little boy, yet handsome for a man. Slightly nerdy, sure, but who doesn't love a nerd?

Although I am a Marvin Gaye fan, I am anything but a fan of the name Marvin and I don't think it's cool. It sounds a bit like the name Mervyn which is definitely uncool and nerdy.

My grandfather's name is Marvin, and he was on Iwo Jima when the flag was raised over the mountain, so for me, it's a very proud and strong name.

Most Marvins are reserved but nice people. It's a common but mysterious name. Cool name!

It sounds like sort of a sad name, probably because of the robot from "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy." Aww!
