Best kindly leave this name to history.

This reminds of the pig in Charlotte's Web. It's a very unattractive name.

I won't deny that the name looks nice written out, but... this is one dated, old-guy name in the United States. It will take a long time before this name shakes that association!

Which is a shame, because it's a nice alternative to the nice, but overused, William.

The name of Lewis' son from Meet the Robinsons. :) It has such a cute and innocent feel to it, and it's so much better than the popular Jayden or Braden!

My surname, only spelled as 'Wilber' instead

Wilbur means 'wild boar' (:

I will always associate this name as a surname WAY more than a first or middle since it happens to be my surname! (Spelled wilber though.)

Wilber/Wilbur does have that vintage feel to it though.

Could also be spelled as Wilber

Wilbur: meaning wild boar.
Wilber: the same thing?

I love this name and it's cute but sounds like a pig from Charlotte's Web.

This name is so hideous! I'm glad E. B. White used it on the pig in Charlotte's Web! A human child would be teased with this name.

This name can also be spelled Wilber, as in Wilber Pan, a Chinese R&B singer.

To me this name sounds country and goosish. It also reminds me of a simple old guy - not that I have anything against old guys. If we're fortunate we'll all live to a ripe old age. It just sounds so dated. I can't believe it was in the top 1,000 in the 70's. Well, differences are what add variety and spice to the world, so if you like this name ok.

This sounds like a great-grandfather name. Very dated indeed. I don't really like the second syllable.

Wilbur is the title character in William Joyce's book, "A Day with Wilbur Robinson;" the book upon which the Disney film "Meet the Robinsons" is based.

WILBUR ROBINSON! from the movie "Meet the Robinsons". Yayy! I love him so much!

Not really a fan of this mainly American but now old-fashioned name. I think it's uncool.  8/30/2007
Wilbur was among the top 1,000 for boys in the United States from the 1880s to the 1970s, with its peak of popularity being in 1910 (96th position). I don't really like this name, to be honest, and I cannot see it making a comeback any time soon. It looks like E. B. White was right to give this name to the pig (in its literal meaning) in his novel Charlotte's Web, which may have contributed to its unpopularity in recent decades.  7/25/2007
Wilbur Robinson from Meet the Robinsons bears the same name. Cool name should be more popular.

Wilbur Wright was one of the Wright Brothers who made the first airplane.

Great for a dog's name, okay-ish for a person's name.

Wilbur is the pig in "Charlotte's Web."
