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

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

Werner Klemperer was an actor best known for his portrayal of the incompetent commandant of Stalag 13, Col. Klink. His father was a composer who moved his family to America to escape anti-Semitic pressure in Europe.

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.

A variant of this name was borne by famous rocket scientist and engineer Wernher von Braun (1912-1977).

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.

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.
