I think it's a really beautiful name. I really recommend it. It's actually my little brother's name.

I really love this name! I think it sounds kind of modern even though it's not. Russ sounds really great. I hate that the popularity is decreasing :( it doesn't sound old or stuffy at all!

(funny thing: in French "rousse elle" means red-headed girl and I heard Roussell was a variant of Russell. Still love the name though)

Russell Brand is a British presenter that presents Big Brother's Big Mouth, a spin-off of Big Brother. He's hilarious and has made me love this name.

"..the girl's brother's name was Russell, a name which to Arthur's mind always suggested burly men with blond mustaches and blow-dried hair who would at the slightest provocation start wearing velvet tuxedos and frilly shirt fronts and would then have to be forcibly restrained from commentating on billiards matches."

- excerpt from So Long, and Thanks For All the Fish, a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book by Douglas Adams. Note: this does not reflect my views on the name, which I rather like. I just wanted to leave this comment because it amused me while I was reading the book.

Makes me think of 'rustle', like rustling leaves. An okay name aside from that.

What did the two leaves name their son?
You guessed it! Russell! :-P

Actually, my name is Russell and I've read that Russell is a Nordic name meaning red headed Warrior.

Sorry, but, it feels like this name is a becoming a victim of the "redneck" stereotype propagated by popular entertainment. It just reminds me of a name used in one-liners by Jeff Foxworthy.

Famous bearer is Kurt Russell.
-- VTDesmond  4/21/2008
It's not the worst name out there by any stretch of the imagination, but I despise Russell Crowe, and he has ruined this otherwise perfectly nice name for me.

A famous bearer is the wonderful, incomparable Russell Brand. He's a British comedian, actor, TV presenter, writer, you name it. That man can do it all! He's the coolest, funniest, sexiest, and most all around awesome man alive. I want a clone of him.

Love it. :D It sounds like a plucky and devilishly clever fellow.
-- not_another_Jessica  12/3/2008
I actually do not like this name, to me it just sounds a bit like a root vegetable. Russell potatoes, anyone? Nor do I like the pet name, Russ.
-- emmiix3  1/19/2009
Russell Stover! Mmmmmm.

And I like it because its kind of natural. Rustling of leaves. It's sweet. Nickname Ross instead of Russ, too. Or Rusty.

I can't believe no one's mentioned Russell Peters yet. He's a Canadian comedian.
-- CanadianChibi  5/5/2009

Thanks to Russel Brand, I forever love this name.

It's russet potatoes, not Russell. This name isn't that bad. I wouldn't give it to one of my kids, but I wouldn't mind hearing it more.
