It would make a wonderful last name.

More likely I'd use York as a middle name rather than a first name.

I overheard, in a mall of few years ago, a father calling for his daughter. Her name was York. I remember thinking, "Wow, I love that name." It only lasted a little while though. Soon I disliked it. I think it is just one of those names that get old quick.

York and Lancaster were the sides of England's Wars of the Roses. York eventually lost (but in my personal opinion they had the better claim to the throne).

Yeah, York had a better claim *rolls eyes* Richard of York killed his two nephews to get the throne! The Princes of the Tower! I'm English and study history and I am personally glad the Tudors came to the throne, Elizabeth I did a lot for us. Anyway, back on track, York is a bit of an odd name. I prefer it for the place in England. New York also takes this name, from York in England.

When I hear the name I think of 3 things. York England (not a bad thing at all!) and the YORKSHIRE Pig, which my Dad raises on his farm, and Yorkshire Pudding. :-p Not a name for a kid, per say lol.

I have to disagree that York would be a perfectly fine name for a child, if it were matched well with his surname.

As a person living in New York, this sounds really strange. I think firstly of the city, then York Peppermint Patties.

Being from New York, I find this name completely ridiculous and pathetic. It doesn't even sound like a name. It's also rather stuck-up sounding, yet I don't think it would be totally unsuitable for a dog.

I live reasonably close to York, yet I still rather like it as a name. However, I wouldn't use it.

I would probably like this name much more of I didn't live in New York.

Here's what goes through my mind when I hear "York":

1. "The grand old duke of York, he had ten thousand men! He marched them up to the top of the hill and he marched them down again! When they were up they were up, and when they were down they were down, but when they were only half way up they were neither up nor down!"

2. York, the slave that accompanied Lewis & Clark.

3. New York, USA

4. York, England

5. The sound of someone gagging/coughing/barfing/choking.

I don't like it much.

Well I of course love this name, well becouse it is my name (i'm a girl). I haven't actually heard of anyone else with this name, which makes it unique and I like that. It was that or Ryane (rain) I'm making it my second name next year. People have told me countless times how much they like my name so it can't be all bad. But I did go through a time were I didn't like it but I know I like that its unique.

I think of two things... Peppermint Patty... and Michael York (even though its his last name.)... it seems like it would be hard to make it flow with just any name. If you paired it with a nice middle name and given you have the right last name for it... It could work.

My first name is York. Not Yorg, or Yorik, or Yorkie... etc. Just plain York. If you don't like the name that is okay, I won't take it personally. There were times when I wished my folks had enough money to give me a second name... ;) There is something to be said for having a unique name. I honestly have never met another person with the exact same spelling as York. I would love to meet another person with "my" name.

BTW, I enjoyed reading ALL the comments, good or bad, I found most quite funny. Trust me, I can relate to most of them, even the gagging, choking sound. It is a hard name to get across to someone in a noisy room. My last name is of German heritage, so the "English" first name does not go well with my last name. I live in Toronto, Canada

Really cool name! A little tacky but in the right setting, it would work.

I really like the name in that it was short and easy to remember when a child.

I disliked it when it was used for seating in a class room... I was always in the last row and the last seat :(
