So, y'all's baby boy ain't workin' right?
As a German, and a Wilhelm, I can say that this is very German.
Like the boy from the Nutcracker?
A nice and very masculine name. Unfortunately it would seem weird here in the USA, and it's a bit too ethnic-sounding for most people. Plus all the dummies out there would probably spell and pronounce it wrong.
In England it is a derogatory term for a German.
The German Emperor Frederick III, who was married to Victoria, Princess Royal Great Britain and Ireland, was called Fritz by his family.

I happen to think it's a great name.
Yours truly,
I like this name. I've also heard it used as a surname and have never met anyone with it as their first name. My guess would be that it's a very, very uncommon name for babies, especially considering its no longer in the top 1000. I think it's a great name for a dog =)

A famous bearer was director Fritz Lang (1890-1976).
I like it, it's a cute name.
Gah, this is a horrible name. It sounds like the name of some little kid in the 1940s, and it actually reminds me of a fart somehow.
Fritz the Cat, hero of R. Crumb's raunchy comic strips and film adaptations.
I do actually like this name. I think it would be fantastic as the name of a book character and absolutely adorable on a little boy, though it would also work quite well for an adult.
"On the Fritz" jokes much?
I never did like this name. It reminds me of that mean boy in the nutcracker. But since it's a pet form, I suppose the bearer wouldn't neccessarily have to use it. Maybe they might like the sound of it, anyway.
WAY better as a surname.
