My name is Rogerio, and I'm from Brazil. but for the last fifteen years I've been living here in the United States.

On the begin I used to tell people my name, but after while I realize how it was difficult for people to understand my name even though when I told them that it is like Roger fallowed by (i and O).
To make the long story shorty I just tell people that my name is Roger.

There was Roger Keith Barrett, formed lead singer and guitarist for the band Pink Floyd. He is better known, however, under the pseudonym of Syd Barrett, which he took upon joining the band. They kicked him out of the band after recording just two albums with him, because he took drugs that made him go mad. He died July 7, 2008. Mostly I remember him as the genius who threw it away.

This is one of those names that I just find really, really cool. At first I didn't think very much of it, but then the assosiations of Roger Taylor, Roger Daltry and Roger Waters (plus Roger Barrett, aka Syd Barrett) made me like it more. As much as I'd like to, though, I don't think I'd name one of my kids this (if I ever have kids; I'm only 13). I just couldn't imagine calling a kid Roger. It just wouldn't work for some reason. I'd definitely use it for a character in a story (which I have done several times). I prefer to spell it Rodger, though I'm not sure why. (It could be that when you add the D, it looks more complete.) It's just such a cool name.

Although this is the name of the ingenious Halcyon High guy, my impression of this name is that it's borne by rather dorky and sexist old farts. It doesn't sound very pleasant; in fact, the name has a harsh sound to it.

To me this name sounds like it would belong to a soldier. He's tough, rugged, intelligent, slick and is loyal to the death. But he also has a soft, funny and even sexy side to him as well. I've only met one Roger, and he was definitely hilarious!

No one remembers Roger Miller? Sigh. People these days don't know what good music is. And Roger Taylor. Only a member of the only good band in the world; Queen.

The Old English cognate is Hreðgar. Hroðgar is the Danish form. Not only is Hroðgar in Beowulf a Danish king, but Beowulf is an English adaptation of a Danish epic composed after much of the Northeast had come under the rule of settlers from Denmark, introducing Danish words and names to England; and when Danish kings such as Cnut ruled England.

The High German Hruodi evolved into the Ruad-, Rud- and Ruger variants, as well as the Rodger forms.

Whenever I hear Roger, I just think of the character from Lord of the Flies, a 'furtive' boy who was eventually almost Jack's second-in-command.
