I didn't like it at first because I related it to older people, but since I've had a boyfriend with this name, it has proven to me that Raymonds are gentle giants with a heart of gold.

I think Ray's name on the t.v show Radio Free Roscoe is Raymond, but I'm not 100% sure. Also, there is a famous comedian named Ray Romono.

Not one of my favorite names. It seems overused to me.
-- Anonymous User  6/12/2006
I don't think it is overused. Raymond is a rare sort of name.

This is my last name and I hate it because every time someone finds out my name they always go "everyone loves Raymond". And also I hate this name because it is French, not that I don't like the French but my first name is Danielle which is also French, my name is so French.

I like this name for a boy. It's like the sunlight, so warm and cheerful.

A good man name!

All the people I know called Raymond just go by Ray. I wouldn't say the name is overused to me. I've only seen two people with that name. It's a cool name, but I wouldn't call my son that.

Raymond is a great name, great meaning and it sounds handsome. I just might use this as a middle name or something.
-- Chrila96  9/11/2010
I love the name Raymond, it's my great-uncle's name. I don't think it sounds "old" or "outdated" at all. I think it sounds very cool and handsome.
-- Chrila96  12/16/2010
Anybody I've ever met with the name Raymond doesn't like his name and just goes by Ray. I don't know why, but for some reason all the Raymonds out there don't like being Raymond. Everybody loves Raymond except Raymond.
-- AmericaSpainGermany  4/18/2011
Quite a nice name; more of an older person's name than a younger person's one, in my opinion. :-)

Raymond Romano (b. 1957 in Queens, New York) is an American actor and comedian.
-- Anonymous User  4/30/2012
It's my great-uncle's name too, and I don't see how you can say a name is "an old man's name". Old men were kids once, and besides, would you rather your son have a childish name like Brayden?

My grandfather's name was Raymond, and now my brother's middle name is Raymond. My brother doesn't seem to like this name too much, but I think it is a nice, strong name. Not that common either.
-- 1836732  6/11/2016
Not at all common but this name could also be spelled as Raimond. OR, even as Ramon or Raimon.
