I first heard of this name because of Gerard Way, but didn't really care for it at first. But it quickly grew on me, and it's now one of my favorite boy names. I think it sounds pretty, and at the same time masculine, and I adore the nickname Gee (but I can't stand the nickname Gerry)! I'm glad that this name did not have a huge boost in popularity caused by My Chemical Romance, and although I enjoy MCR as a band, I'm not a huge Gerard Way fan, and my liking of this name isn't because of him.
I didn't mind this name until Gerard Way came along and ruined it for me! (okay, maybe not. But I would never name my child this in fear of him being associated with Mr. Way).
I wouldn't know of this name without the lead singer of MCR, but I still hate it. I'm not a guy, but if I had that name, I would change it as soon as I could!

It's a nice name.
I love this name, mostly because it's a traditional male name in my family. I must say, all of the drooling fangirls of MCR are ruining the quality of this name. Nothing against MCR, their music is actually pretty good, but no matter what the lead singers name was, it'd be the same deal. They'd just like the name because it belonged to someone "hot". Pathetic.
I'm not a huge fan of Gerard Way but at least he didn't make Passion Of The Christ. Um, other than that pair, I guess it's an okay name, but kind of a lot of Rs. Although my full name is absolutely full of Rs so I'm one to talk.
Mel Gibson's middle name is Gerard. I'm no judge of men or anything but if I were a female I'd be way more into him than that sissy from MCR.
