I love this name! It's so medieval and jester-ey. X)

Alas, poor Yorick. Horatio, I knew him well.

This name is also used in The Netherlands, where it is a top 1000 name. [noted -ed]

This name is actually pretty cool. It has a good sound. Although if you use it in an English-speaking country, once the kid hits high school he's going to get a *lot* of "Alas, poor Yorick!" But if he has a sense of humor, he should do just fine. :-)

Absolutely great name, definitely usable in my opinion. :-)

Personally, I am actually (and rather surprisingly) fond of the name "Yorick" (however, it is positively more attractive to the ear than to the eye.)

Regrettably, I deem it unsuitable in English-speaking countries due to aforementioned difficulties. The spelling also proves to be bothersome... it resembles some contemporary, ghetto, 'kre8tiv' atrocity

As a note, if you separate the name into "Yo" and "Rick"... well, it could potentially come out as a beckon, "Yo, Rick! Come here!"

The Dutch pronunciation of this name can be YO-rik as well as YAW-rik (depends on where you are in the country). [noted -ed]

A peculiar name. It would, however, get some teasing in the drama class or by anyone who is familiar with Shakespeare's works. I am an avid Shakespearean, but even I would not use this.

Possible nickname: Rick.

What's in a name.. .I say it's how you feel about it and how well you carry it! Alas I am a Yorrick bearing no ill will to Shakespeare's 'Yorick' (it is my surname with 2 Rs) and I do love my unique name and own it with great pride. BRAVO! To all with a quirky and unusual first name or surname.
