'Vergil' is the name of Dante's twin brother in the hit video game series 'Devil May Cry'. According to the Wikipedia entry to the Devil May Cry games:

"The story alludes to The Divine Comedy in the game's areas (roughly resembling and representing inferno, purgatorio, and paradiso) as well as in some of the character names; however it is purely an aesthetic similarity, and indeed the game borrows from a very wide range of sources for inspiration."

Unfortunately, it seems like this name has been dragged into the "redneck" stereotype by popular entertainment. It just reminds me of the characters on "Mama's Family" or a one-liner from Jeff Foxworthy.

I prefer the spelling 'Vergil' as it is closer to the original Latin name (Vergilius).

I used to like this name, but now it sounds outdated and redneck to me. Immediately, I think of the hideous politician Virgil Goode.

Virgil Tracy was named after Virgil Grissom, a NASA Astronaut. All the Tracy brothers were named after the first five Americans into space, I believe.

Virgil Tibbs was a main character on the American TV series "In the Heat of the Night".

Virgil sounds really nerdy/geeky to me. I always picture it on a sort of awkward, rather unattractive teenage boy.

But at least it's the name of a Roman poet, which is cool!
