My dad is named Norman and I think it is a great name. Maybe it would be a bit different these days for a child to be called Norman but I really like the name!

Unfortunately Norman was the name of the psychotic owner of Bates Motel in the Hitchcock classic "Psycho", played by Anthony Perkins. For happier images on can think of Norman Rockwell and Norman Mailer.

I love the name Norman, and would use it. I think of actor Norman Reedus. I also think of Norman Bates from the movie Psycho, which is one of my favorite films.

I love this name very much. It's uncommon, old fashioned and has a lot of history. Plus, "Norm" is a good nickname.

I like it though it's somewhat old fashioned. The name of my grandpa and uncle, my great-grandparents were Norwegian's living in America so they thought it was a fitting name.

Very old-fashioned, and too similar to 'normal' and 'norm'.

How right you are. It is my name and every time a teacher said "normal" or "normally" I jumped because I thought they were calling on me when if I had been daydreaming.

Norman Rockwell was a 20th century painter and illustrator (one of my favorite artists).

I think of the Monty Python sketch "the Piranha Brothers." Dinsdale Piranha is perfectly normal, except for being convinced that he was being followed by an giant hedgehog known only as "Spiny Norman."

It is the name of the title character in the Broadway comedy "Norman is that you?" which later became a movie.

The character Norman Jayden in the video game 'Heavy Rain' made me like this name. Because he's awesome and I have a slight crush on him.
Anyway FBI Agent Norman Jayden. The reason I think the name Norman is cool.

Norman Cook is the real name of British DJ Fatboy Slim. He was born Quentin Leo Cook, though I'm not sure why or when he changed his name.

I like the name Norman. What really sold me on the name was Harper Carter's performance as Norman Sturges in Titanic (1953). I really liked that character.

Norman the Normal. I don't like this name at all. Too many ways people can make fun of this name.

Norman Babcock is the main character of the 2012 animated horror comedy film ParaNorman.

It just sounds too much like "normal".

I named my oldest son Norman Gene in 2013. It is a family name on both sides of our family, and we use family names for all of our children. We call him Normie for short. It's super cute, and fitting for him. I like that although it's not a particularly abstract name, there won't likely be any other "Normies" in his class.

I personally think it is an odd and ugly name.

Norman Yoshio Mineta is a Japanese-American politician. A member of the Democratic Party, Mineta most recently served in President George W. Bush's Cabinet as the United States Secretary of Transportation, the only Democratic Cabinet Secretary in the Bush administration.
