Comments for NEMO:

The main character in the animated movie, Finding Nemo, bears this name, as you can see. Also, Nemo, is the title of a song by Finnish metal act, Nightwish. This song reached many number-one top spots on several single lists in Europe.

This is the title of one of my favorite songs by Finnish band "Nightwish".

I simply can't understand why this name has become so popular in Sweden. Oh yes, I know it's because of "Finding Nemo" and probably also because many people here like Nightwish, but I cringe.
"Hello, I'm Nothing, who are you?" And it's "omen" spelled backwards.

This name sounds cute, but I wouldn't use it. Imagine your kid playing hide and seek: "Look! I found Nemo!" Hearing that would get a wee bit on the annoying side, to say the least. Use it if you want to, but teasing will probably come with it.

In Homer's Odyssey, when the cyclops Polyphemus asks his name, Odysseus says, "Nemo" ('No one' in Latin). Therefore when Odysseus gouges his eye out and Polyphemus is asked by the other cyclopes who is hurting him, he says, "No one is hurting me!"

Why would Odysseus use Latin while he is a Greek? It doesn't make sense. I should know because I have been studying Latin at school for four years now. Anyways, I think Nemo is a name that shouldn't be used in real life, just because of the teasing a kid might endure.

Nemo is the name of the main character in a series of comic strips called Little Nemo by Winsor McCay. A movie, Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland, was based off of the comic strip.

Nemo was the alias of Captain Hawdon from Charles Dickens' novel "Bleak House."

Nemo means 'nobody'? That's a bit surprising. I wonder if they took that into account while making the animated movie. It's a cute name, though, I like it.

I love this name for a girl. I know it is masculine, but I got the sense that in the song "Nemo" by Nightwish, it was feminine, because Tarja, the singer of Nightwish, is female. You get the picture. I think this is a beautiful name for a girl. For a guy it's okay.

During the late 19th Century and first half of the 20th Century, it was common to see Letters to the Editor in newspapers signed "Mr Nemo" when the author of the letter did not want to be identified.

It would sound far cooler pronounced ''NE-mo'' instead of ''NEE-mo''. I'm afraid the name sounds a little too ''out there'', and people probably wouldn't expect a guy named Nemo to be particularly, um, conventional. Unfortunately enough, employers are often terrified of unconventional people.

No way. This sounds ridiculous as a name, considering that it means "nobody". And someone named Nemo will get too many Finding Nemo jokes.

I liked this name up until the stupid fish movie came out. I can't imagine giving a kid this name knowing he will have to go to school and face the other kids with it. :/

I think this name would sound awesome on a fictional character. Not so on a real child, though. I loved the name even more after listening to "Nemo" by Nightwish.

Nemo is also a Waodoni name meaning "Star." This was the nickname Waodoni tribeswoman Dayume gave her friend Rachel Saint, the sister of one of the five missionaries speared by the Waodoni in 1956. Nemo in Wao is pronounced, "Nay-mo."

Anyone with this name will be teased about "Finding Nemo."

I have a friend who's a girl named Nemo. I like it for a girl, though the meaning is sad.
