Newton. Newton. Newton. Hmmm. Fig Newton. I just can't get over that name.

Sounds pretentious and elitist, and the nickname Newt makes me think of Newt Gingrich, which isn't good at all.

Thomas Jerome Newton is the name of the main character in the book and film "The Man Who Fell to Earth," but it's a surname.

I like the sound of it.

Newton Fuller is a character in the old play/movie "George Washington Slept Here".

I can't help but hate this name. It's a fine surname, but it was definitely killed for me whenever we did this show and everyone kept over-enunciating the t and making it new-TON. I also think of newts. Gross.

I can't believe no one has mentioned this, but a famous bearer (having Newton as a surname) is/was (whatever tense it's supposed to be) Sir Isaac Newton.

Newton Pulsifer is a character in 'Good Omens' by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Whilst I wouldn't give the name to a human, it suited my cat and I think it a good name for a pet animal.
