I think it's a fantastic name. I wish it was more popular.

It is becoming more popular in Sweden, but I doubt that it'll grow in popularity to that extent in any English-speaking country anytime soon.

Melvin, Melvin, Melvin. This sounds like a terrible name! Unfortunately, I got that name stuck in my head. Honestly, it sounds nerdy and kind of, well, dumb. No offense!

This is my father's name. Even so I can't say I really like the name. The first half is fine "Mel" it's the second half that gets me "Vin". I really really dislike the name Vin or any name that has that name in it. Except the name Vincent. I happen to really like that name. Go figure.

Melvin is very, very popular where I live. It seems like every other boy is named Melvin/Melwin. I'm so tired of it.

I think it should be noted that in slang the name Melvin is used in a derogatory way to described an "uncool", "nerdy", "dorky" person.

This is an awful name. It will cause a lot of discrimination, knowing that Melvin is used as a generic name for a geek. I can't understand why it's still used, or why it's so trendy in Sweden. I guess that some other people don't think Melvin is nerdy.
