All I can think of is the glue.
So...this is my name and I didn't realize now what a bad impression it makes on people, I've always liked it because of how unique it was, especially for someone my age (I'm a teenager). Might just go by my middle name now :/
It reminds me of school glue.
I haven't heard this name in years. Extremely outdated name. Sounds weird too.
In 2018, 82 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Elmer who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 810th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.
This name is really old fashioned and unattractive, and it reminds me of Elmer Fudd.
My father has had the name Elmer for 88 years and I have had the name for over 65 years. Elmer is not a common name but make no mistake, it is not a sissies name. I liken it to the song The Boy Named SUE by Johnny Cash. It's not what you are called but what you are made of. If you have no honor, it is not an honourable name. If you are a prick, then the name will represent a prick. I would like to think I bring honor and strength to the old fashioned name of Elmer.
Elmer is a main character of "Spoon River Anthology" by Edgar Lee Masters published in 1915. In the poem "The Hill" he is the first dead person cited:

"Where are Elmer, Herman, Bert, Tom and Charley,
The weak of will, the strong of arm, the clown, the boozer, the fighter?
All, all are sleeping on the hill.
One passed in a fever," (...)
Elmer is the name of the dorky kid with the boil on his face in the Fairly Odd Parents.
The name Elmer was given to 148 boys born in the US in 2015.
I really like the Finnish form of this name, Elmeri.
The name Elmer was given to 138 baby boys born in the US in 2012.
I only not dislike this name because it was my grandfather's real name. He made everyone call him Bob though. Other than that I would think it's totally dorky and old fashioned.
I actually like this name, but I won't use it due to the association with Elmer's glue and Elmer Fudd.
I don't like this name because it sounds ugly and is kind of old-fashioned. And who doesn't instantly think of Elmer Fudd?
Elmer's Glue is the basic school glue. The product is so named because the mascot (a white bull) is named Elmer.
Professional golfer Elmer Vojtka (29. Oct 1909-June 1973) is Jon Voight´s father and Angelina Jolie´s grandfather.
I dislike this name somewhat. Whenever I mention this name I always think of that Elmer Fudd who, I reckon, was a rather dislikeable character over the years since his creation and that of his arch-enemy Bugs Bunny.
This is a really nice name with a great meaning, in my opinion, and would be highly usable if it wasn't for Elmer Fudd and Elmer the Patchwork Elephant!
It makes me think first of Elmer's Glue, unfortunately. The meaning is really nice though, but I keep picturing the glue-bottle in my head when I hear the name.
I like this name, even though to many people it gives the connotation of a farmer in overalls, chewing on hay. I think it has a nice sound and a good meaning, and people should get past the idea that it is a "hick" name.
A feminine form of this name can be Elmira, pronounced el-MEER-a.
This sounds like the name of an old whiny-voiced farmer, don't know why. It has a cool meaning, though.
If not for Elmer Fudd, this would be an ok name. It has a really cool meaning.
Elmer Fudd is the inept, lisping hunter who feuds with Bugs Bunny in the Looney Tunes cartoons.
