We chose this name for our baby and get a lot of compliments. But I've been surprised by how many people omit the second L when spelling it. I didn't expect that at all. If you want a name that's never misspelled, this isn't the one.
I am sorry, but Malcolm is a truly horrible name and I can't for the life of me imagine a baby called Malcolm.
Don't like it because of its similarity to the Biblical false god Milcom.
To be honest, I can only think of Malcolm X whenever I hear this name, but the name is cool.
I always just think of Malcolm Pace, the child of Athena and Annabeth’s half brother in the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus and Trials of Apollo series. I think he’s a seriously underrated character and I can understand that this name is described as being “nerdy”. Maybe Rick just searched up “nerdy names” on this website and found Malcolm.
Malcolm is my name. I like it, but the amount of times people misspell it is really irritating.

Malcolm Roderick Maclean was an American politician. He was the mayor of Savannah, Georgia from 1960 to 1962.
This sounds like a satanic name to me. It has unpleasant history.
Malcolm is one of my very favorite names for a boy. It's an adult name that isn't too heavy for a child to bear, plus you get the nickname "Mal" out of it.While Malcolm has a long history as a given name, I feel like really only two examples are readily remembered in contemporary parlance: Captain Malcolm Reynolds from the show "Firefly," and Malcolm X. The first is a fictional character from a cult classic sci-fi show, and the second is a "controversial" civil rights leader. I sincerely hope that the previous poster wasn't referring to Malcolm X when she was talking about the name's "unpleasant history," because honestly that's a racist implication - no point in dancing around the truth.It's a shame that Malcolm X's legacy has caused so many to regard Malcolm as a "scary" name.
Wow... "satanic". Really. I'd like to know the "unpleasant history" of which you speak. Anyways, back to rational commentary: I think Malcolm is a great name. Number one, I love it because of one of its most famous bearers Malcolm X. But, also it's a old-fashion name that you don't hear often.
Great name. Should be used more often.
