Sorry, but the first thing that comes to mind when I hear the name Simon is "Simple Simon met a pie man." It is a nice name, but that darn poem is famous.

Simón José Antonio de la Santísima Trinidad Bolívar y Palacios (born July 24, 1783 in Caracas, Venezuela; died December 17, 1830, in Santa Marta, Colombia) was a leader of several independence movements throughout South America, collectively known as Bolívar's War.

Credited with leading the fight for independence in what are now the countries of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Panama and Bolivia, he is revered as a hero in these countries and throughout much of the rest of Hispanic America.

In 1802, he married María Teresa Rodríguez del Toro y Alaysa. When she died of yellow fever less than a year later, he never remarried.

Bolívar is known as "El Libertador", The Liberator, as well as the "George Washington of South America" due to his leading the above independence movements, just as Washington led and won independence for the United States.

I really don't know what to say about this name, because it's my birth name. I guess that's why I don't particularly like it, when I repeat it in my mind I can't say if it sounds good or bad. I really dislike the "nerdy guy" fame that has been given to it. I never met a guy named Simon that looked nerdy or annoying (and I'm not one either). I wonder what gave it such an unpopular fame. When I ask other people "what do you think of the name Simon?" I always get haters or lovers, but never in-betweens. I guess it's one of those names you either love or hate. I hate people who associate this name to the robot-game though. That's really mean.

For some reason this name always makes me think of a smart person. Maybe it's because the only Simon I've ever met was a little nerdy kid with glasses. But I still really like this name, it kind of automatically makes you sound smart!

This is my favorite boys name. I used to have an imaginary friend named Simon when I was little. :) It's very cute on a little boy, and sounds nice on a grown-up man as well. It always seems to me very friendly and kind, and also magical. I would love to name a son of mine Simon.

I love this name! I always think of the Simon character from the movie Nanny McPhee when I hear it. It was my favorite movie as a kid and that was my favorite character. So when I think of Simon, I think of a cute, yet temperamental and mischievous boy who also has a lot of goodness and innocence to him. Because of that character, this name doesn't sound "nerdy" to me.

To quote Homer Simpson: "They've taken all our good names like Lance, Bruce and Julian"... and Simon fits in there too. Along with Sebastian and Gaetano.

I hate my name but not enough to want to change it. Not being a fan of nicknames doesn't help. If you're thinking of calling your kid Simon, don't. It's unique enough so most likely the only other Simon they know is some old dude and the game 'Simon Says' will ruin most childhood games for you. Also, all my name makes me think of outside people is anti-depressant medication. If you are going to give a boy a rare first name, it has to make strong sounds orally like Stefan or a long name that can be shortened down to something reasonable like Montgomery to Monty.
-- Simon..........  1/26/2016
Although I do like this name, it's not enough for me to use for any of my children. Plus, I picture a "Simon" more on a British boy than an American boy (More then likely my kids will be born and raised in the states) and I wouldn't want my kid to be tirelessly mocked with "Simon Says" jokes.
