Warner is my surname, attributed to my GG Grandfather, William Warner, b. 1818, Perhaps near Baden Baden. Family story is that the name may have been changed in coming to America, and was he known as a "very Prussian German", because of his handlebar mustache, blue eyes and heavy German accent. That leaves me with the following alternative: Wernicke, Werner, Wirner, Werher, Wirnher, Worner, Wornher & Warnhari.

Replace the R with an I and you get Weiner

I don't think this is the best choice to name your child. Sorry, but people can be cruel. Don't cause your kid the headache & discomfort.

This is my dad's name - the biggest problem with it is that it is consistently misspelled as "Warner" by everyone told his name. I wouldn't recommend it be given to a child too far away from Germany, both because of the spelling and because I think it sounds better as intended - "verner" - and that's not going to happen most other places.

I find this name to be very handsome and masculine. It has a great sound to it and a old-fashioned feel. It sounds heavy and romantic.

I have an uncle Werner, from Germany. I don't think one is likely to hear the name outside of German speaking countries.

Werner Herzog is a film maker, famous most recently for "Grizzly Man." Most notable in my own mind for eating his shoe.
