Awesome name. Strong and Nordic. It should be used by more people.

I really do love this name. Even though my boyfriend said that he's not naming his son after a racing brand! I need some ideas on how I can convince him that Thor is a perfect name for our son.

Thumbs up. I know it's an uncommon name, but it is very strong and masculine. It's connection to mythogoly makes it difficult to use which is a shame. But, if people open their minds and stop being so judgmental, all names would be usable.

I think this is a great name that deserves a come back but I don't think most people would be brave enough to use it.

My son is named Thor. Everyone thought I was nuts since we were just country folks from Alabama, but I can assure you he definitely has lived up to the name. My pride and joy and he definitely loves that I named him Thor.

My son's name is Thor. After having a torn placenta and 3 positive biopsies for cancer during my pregnancy, we were told not to name him and to get my affairs in order. At 8 months we were told to name him and get the nursery ready because regardless of what happens now, he will live. It was the only name we could agree on and it started as joke. I am of Swedish decent and my husband is German decent so he may have a Thor look but his soul is the strength that earned him the name.
