Comments for SIGMUND:

This name is very strong and German sounding.

Sigmund Frued was a psychologist before his time. He came up with many interesting thoughts.

We had few Sigmunds in our familly but I like the nickname Ziggy or Siggy more.

I like this but I wouldn't use it because he'd end up with one of those nicknames which I really don't like.

Unfortunately, I think Freud ruined it for me. It's unfortunate because I really do like the name, associations aside.

This seems like a good, strong name. It sounds like a hero in a fantasy book. I also like the nicknames of "Sig" or "Siggie" that you could turn it into.

Well, it's a very old-fashioned name. It doesn't sound like a grandfather name. It's more of a great-grandfather name. It would sound very pompous and pretentious, not to mention plain ridiculous, on a child today. I'm not German, but I do know something about German culture as a German student. Of course, the real reason I hate this name is that it can only really be associated with that sexist man Freud, who had the audacity to talk about female sexuality as if women were like children or pets who couldn't speak for themselves and say asinine things about it as if he even COULD have known what he was talking about.

I find it very interesting that people seem to associate with Freud his time-dependent and long-dated thoughts and interpretations only, when he is the founder of psychoanalysis which is still undisputedly one of the most brilliant techniques in order to help people suffering from mental disorders. And he has done so much more. I think it's sad that people who know close to nothing about him or have a strange picture of his work in their minds keep communicating it to the world. This doesn't mean I agree with some things he said about sexuality and further related topics, but as I have already noted, but this is simply not all of his work. There are so many artists and scientists who do a lot of sh** before they produce something great. It's not at all justified to see that great piece of work they created in the light of the bad work they did.

To come back to the name Sigmund itself: I dislike it in German, but like it in English. Sigmund Freud's original name was Sigismund, though, as far as I can remember.

A famous bearer is Sigmund Esco 'Jackie' Jackson, one of the members of The Jackson 5.

How strange that it should be pronounced so very differently in Germany than in America…

Hah.
