"DRAGONITE, Hyper Beam"

I will now forever think of that whenever someone tells me that their name is Lance. Not a bad connotation however.

I love this name, it makes me think of video games (Lance from Elite Four, Lance from EBF, Lance from FE, Lance from Brave Frontier, the list goes on). I am in the boat where I changed my name due to being FTM transgender, and I chose the name because it is simple and yet brings up so many cool memories for me.

There is a character named Lance in the Epic Battle Fantasy video game series (An antagonist in the 2nd game and a protagonist in the 3rd, 4th and 5th games).
He is why I love the name Lance so much :D.

Funny: I read all of the comments and no one pointed out the the surfer in Apocalypse Now was named Lance. That always kind of bugged me. He wasn't the brightest bulb.

When I was in high school German class, I had to choose a German name. I chose Lutz, because it was on a list of German names and it started with 'L.' I didn't know it at the time, but Lance comes from an Old German name Lanzo (sounds Italian, doesn't it?), and I would have used that name instead. But I'm not German.

I do wonder why Lancelot became tied up in Arthurian legend. Mary Stuart's books use a different name for the character. Maybe Lancelot is a mispronunciation of 'Lanzo l'eau.' I'm just speculating that the old German name could get mixed in with French. 'Eau' is French for water, and wasn't Lancelot connected with the Lady of the Lake?

This is an all around awesome name to me. It's a good, strong manly name without being too "in your face" masculine. I personally love it and wouldn't hesitate to use it.

This name is lovely, however the LANS pronunciation sounds wrong. I'm thinking of pronouncing it RANSU.

Lance, a prominent character in the most awesome video game to ever exist - "Brigandine," is another famous fictional Lance. Given the other Arthurian Legend-inspired names in the game like Yvain, Palomides, etc., I reckon Lance was named Lance as a sort of modern/familiar version of Lancelot.

Avoid the name Lance. It just feels like the name for a horribly written character with an overdramatic name. It's still better than Drake though, but still, use something better.

I used to really like the name Lance, but somebody I used to know by that name turned me off from it because he turned out to be a jerk. Plus there are a couple of gay celebrities with this name (Lance Bass from *NSYNC and Dustin Lance Black, who is a screenwriter for some movies). However, in a way I still like it because it reminds me of warriors and dragons too. Probably because people used lances back in the Middle Ages and there is a series of books called "DragonLance." :)

Every Lance I've known has been a jerk, but somehow I still like the name. I guess because it's not overused.

To me, Lance always makes me think of an effeminate gay man. I think it's probably due to Lance Bass (who is gay himself). Not that there's anything wrong with being gay, but that's my main association with the name.

My cousin just named her baby Lance and I was surprised. I don't particularly hate or love it. Just seems there are a lot better-sounding names.

Not to offend anyone, but the name Lance makes me want to gag. I just can't imagine what kind of a person would look down at their newborn son and go, "Huh. I think I'll name him Lance." Honestly, it's a so-so name for a grown man (still kind of icky to me, honestly) but I just can't see any sane person naming their kid Lance. I mean, "Lance honey, it's time for dinner!" or "Shh, Lance. Mommy's on the phone." To be frank, Lance makes me think of a stuck up pretty boy. And the name kind of makes me want to punch something.

One of the final four Pokemon Trainers in Pokemon Blue and Red was named Lance. He had dragon-type Pokemon, so I always associate the name Lance with dragons.

Well, this is my name (not Lancelot, I don't know why I made that my username!). I can't stand Lance Armstrong or Lance Bass, but the name itself is actually quite nice, I think. It's fairly uncommon--although much-used names can be great too--and I don't personally know anyone else with this name. When my parents were trying to figure out who my patron saint was, the closest they could think of was Lawrence (LAwreNCE), which I think is cool. (I hate the name Lawrence, but St. Lawrence was cool.)
