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

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

Wilbur Robinson from Meet the Robinsons bears the same name. Cool name should be more popular.

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.

Not really a fan of this mainly American but now old-fashioned name. I think it's uncool.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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?

My surname, only spelled as 'Wilber' instead
