Every time I hear this name, I laugh because it reminds me of the movie, Norbit, which is probably one of the funniest movies ever.

Norbert is the name of the blond beaver in the 90's cartoon "Angry Beavers". :D (But if I remember right he was often called Norb or Norbie).

While I also like Albert and Robert, Norbert is my favorite. It is popular in my country and have heard it at least once on a boy.

Norbert is not a nerdy name. It is a beautiful and strong name. I personally love it for my son. It is rather popular in Hungary.

Norbert Nigbur is a former German international football player.

The goalkeeper joined Gelsenkirchen's biggest club, FC Schalke 04, from tiny SV Gelsenkirchen 06 in 1966, playing 456 matches in the Bundesliga for Schalke and Hertha BSC in between 1966 and 1983, being the first first-team player from Schalke joining the club from Berlin after the Bundesligaskandal in 1970–71. His biggest success on club level was the DFB-Pokal trophy with hometown side Schalke 04 in 1972. In the 1980s and after the end of his last Schalke contract, Nigbur played for teams as VfB Hüls, Rot-Weiss Essen and FC Luthenberg outside the top two German divisions.
