I think that if you're going to name your son Porter expect him to be huge. This name just reminds me of some big linebacker or something.

It sounds hopelessly elitist and pretentious as a first name. I bet kids named Porter go to expensive, all-boy boarding schools.

I knew a girl and her husband who named their son Porter because the husband was a bartender and really liked beer. They called the boy their little beer. It's a travesty of a name; you might as well name his sisters Sherry and Brandy.

I love the name Porter for a boy. It just sounds so sweet. I would probably name my own son Porter one day. It's one my most favorite boy names.

Although I do like this name, no way in hell would I ever name my kid this (a son obviously) Porter potty comes to mind.
