This is also a shortened form of the infamous literary plot device called "Mary-Sue". A Mary Sue is the character who appears out of nowhere, but instantly fits in with the characters already existing and has "special" powers.

Ugly name!

Sue is also a Japanese name, with the average approximate translation being 'season', 'seasonal'. Different pronunciation, of course. The name of my cousin is Sueka - written with the kanji for 'Seasonal bell'. Very unusual, but I think very pretty ^_^ A more typical kanji for Sueka would be that for 'seasonal bloom'.

My middle name is Sue - how boring can you get? How many other females in the mid-70's have the middle name Sue? Only about a billion!

Too common. No.

Has also been a male name at times. I say it is a male name too.
-- love_names  12/7/2006
No, it's not a male name. That's the whole point of "A Boy Named Sue".
-- WhitePhantom  12/20/2006
Sue is also the English spelling of the Hmong name Xws (yes that is the correct spelling) and it means "girly".

Sue is most often an abbreviated form of Susan.

There was a male attorney named Sue K. Hicks, named after his mother who died in childbirth. Shel Silverstein wrote a poem called "A Boy Named Sue," and Johnny Cash performed it. I am not saying this should be used as a boy's name.

Makes me think of "Mary Sue".
-- spaz123  9/15/2007
This name is too common, and it makes me think of a bus-driver.
-- Mrnda13  1/2/2008
This name is too minimalist for my taste, and I much prefer Susanna, not so much Susan. This was the name of the super-awesome editor of the teletext service Spit It Out on MTV Europe and other European MTV teletext pages back in the day. She once write that the spelling of her name had a twist, so it must have been short for something like Suezan (just guessing).

When you file a lawsuit, you sue. Ridiculous as a name, isn't it?
-- bananarama  7/14/2008
Reminds me of Mary Sues and suing someone. Ugh.
-- TinyVamp  11/28/2008
Sue is a middle aged sort of name, and not many young people have it.

Sue Sylvester from Glee. She is freaking awesome. Nuff said.

Awww you guys are mean! This name is cute!
-- Chrila96  11/20/2010
I'm 13 and this is my middle name. I hate it. It sounds country and ugly. I like my first name, but hate my middle name with a passion.

I was named after both my grandmothers (they were both named Sue) and my mom's middle name though, so the only good thing I can find about it is that it's a family name, and it's always cool to honor people.

Other than that I hate it and I'm embarrassed by it.

To me, Sue is a "filler" name. It's just there and doesn't really add anything to the overall impression of the person's full name.
-- GibsonGirl  8/21/2011
Last update: My bad! One user called GibsonGirl did call Sue a filler name on this comment section- guess I forgot and missed that comment! Anyway, my point still stands that I don't like how some call this a filler name. Oh well, everyone has their own opinions. I personally adore this pretty name. ^_^
-- justsomegirl  5/3/2015
I ❤ how short, easy and quick it is to say Sue (which makes it more practical than say, Alexandria or Arabella). I like it more as a first name because as a first name, it's quite underused.

The "Mary Sue" and the verb "Sue" aren't very nice associations, HOWEVER, the meaning "Lily" is lovely! ^^ So lovely in fact, it makes me think: Are those reasons really good enough to hate this name? Of course not! ಠ_ಠ

Sue- a filler name? How do you know the person isn't naming their child after a family member (which would hold great, dear importance to them) and/or doesn't simply adore names like Sue, Rose, Grace etc.? Long story short: Who are you to judge people without knowing them?

Overall, Sue is an AMAZING & BEAUTIFUL name! :D.
-- justsomegirl  7/22/2014
Whoa, dude, take it easy there. No one judged anybody. They simply said that it sounds like a filler name to them--and it does to me, too. "Sue" by itself doesn't do much for me. Actually, I suppose I'm not really a huge fan of very many monosyllabic names. To me this would be a nickname for Suzanne, Susanna, Suzette, or Susan (I like Suzette & Susanna the most.) "Typical" middle/filler names such as Grace and Marie are pretty so-so in my view as well; they just leave me a bit cold. It seemed as if every other girl in my class had one of those for a middle name, heheh.

All that said, Sue isn't BAD by any means. It's a good nickname (or given name if you like it enough), and lets you sing "Sweet Sue" or "Suzy Q" to the person! ^w^

First of all, I'm a girl so don't call me "dude". Anyway, I know no-one (at the moment) on this comment section specifically called Sue as a filler name but I just wanted to address this as it's a typical, common reason why some people dislike the use of this name as a middle name. When I said not to judge people, I was speaking to those who do think this is a filler name in their heads but haven't commented on here. Though I think I agree with you saying "take it easy"; I think I can get a little too... hyper when expressing my enthusiasm, hehe. (#⌒∇⌒#)ゞ.

Susan "Sue" Barker, English TV presenter and former professional tennis player.
-- justsomegirl  7/22/2014
So what if it is a word used to file a lawsuit? People use the nickname Rob for Robert all the time and that means to take away.
