Personal Impression
This is the corniest name I have ever heard. This is a dog's name, not a human being's.

If your name is Junior, and you're really handsome - come on, raise your hand.

Junior is the name of the title character in The Problem Child (1990) and The Problem Child 2 (1991).

Junior (1994) is a film about a scientist (portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger) who impregnates himself and gives birth to a baby girl named Junior.

Junior is sometimes further shortened to JR as a given name. I grew up with a boy named JR, and none other than Johnny Cash was born J.R. Cash but changed his name to John when enlisting, as the military would not accept initials as a first name.

This is a title, not a name. It sounds like trailer trash! And imagine an old man named Junior. Very ironic. Only works as a nickname.

This is just stupid as a legit name- sorry but it is. It is a title which will have everyone assuming that his name is something else. If the father's name was say, Andrew David, they're going to assume that the son's name is Andrew David as well.

Also, imagine an old man named this. That would be so ironic and hysterical.

Think before you name your children. Why is common sense so rare these days?

I've only met one person named Junior, and it wasn't his real name, it was just a nickname. But at least if he got sick of that, he could just tell people to stop calling him Junior and start calling him by his real name.
If your real name was Junior, you'd have to change it instead of just getting rid of an old nickname.
This is why it's better to just name your kid after you and nickname him Junior.

Does anybody remember the Danish band Junior Senior?

This is not a name. It is a title.
You name your kid this and everyone is going to assume that their name is actually, say, Mark Anthony named after the dad but chooses to be referred to as a jr.

My son is called Junior, as his real name. I really like the name. As his nickname we call him JJ for his middle name and he loves it. He is only 4 but even when he is older I'm sure the name will suit.

Not only does Daddy Dearest sound narcissistic, he's too self-absorbed to realize that his poor son may face mockery. As a given name, it won't fit when Junior's a grown man. Plus it sounds like a trailer trash name.

My personal impression of this name is that it is a mistake.

I don't see how Junior is bad for a grown man, I like it!

Ridiculous. The poor kid. And imagine how he'll feel when he's a grown man and he's called "Junior". Tacky and just plain bad.

This name only sounds right to me when it's a nickname, although I'm not a fan of naming a child after yourself. Like as a term of endearment even if the child is not really named after the parent would be cute.

I like the name Junior for a boy nickname, not as his real name, just a nickname for a boy who is named after his father.
disgurlcrazy  9/2/2008
No way. It's so juvenile and demeaning. Even if your son has the same name as his father, NEVER call him Junior! He has his own identity, you know. This is a nickname, not a legal name.
bananarama  8/28/2008
I can understand if your son had the same name as you and you just called him Junior as a nickname but to legally name your kid this is stupid.

I would never name my kid after myself and nickname him/her Junior if only for the reason that is would make me "senior".
renee06  5/3/2008
What sort of an idiot names their son Junior? It sounds like the name some egomaniac would choose, as he sees his son as nothing more than a continuation of himself and as an extension of his ego, and doesn't give a rat's ass that the name sounds trailer trash-y and infantile, and that the son will never be taken seriously.

My husband's name is Junior. Most Samoans call their first born sons this. It has nothing to do with naming their child after them.
jessika_aulelei  2/18/2008
It's the ugliest name that I have ever heard! Can you imagine a grown man who comes to you and says: "Hi, I'm Junior". Would't you laugh?

This name was used a lot in the Looney Tunes Cartoons. I actually like this name.

This is a disgusting name, it's like naming your kid Little Version of Me. It is horrible and I hate it when dads call their kids this, it is just tacky.

Big Idea's Veggie Tales has a character named Junior Asparagus.

Theres a guy named Junior on the t.v show "My Wife and Kids".

We were given a dog with the name Junior. I hate it because every time I call him from the backyard I sound like trailer park trash. Just try hollering this name and you'll understand!
