Personal Impression
330 unfortunate boys were named 'Melvin' in 2018. How this dated and seriously unattractive name is still being used is anyone's guess.

Always thought this name a bit goofy but the one I knew was so sweet and nice and well-liked. Everyone called him Mel, like Mel Gibson, and that sounds better to me. Mel died young and now I don't feel as negative toward the name, somehow.

The word MEL actually means "sweet", so I don't get the definition of Melvin meaning Chief, but I have seen mistakes in these definitions, and even in my own name.

People who don't like the name Melvin are just jealous. Melvin is a very nice and handsome name for very handsome men.

I really like the name Melvin it's my name just spelled differently, not nerdy or unattractive at all. I think that it would be good if the name Melvin gets more popular. I get comments on my name all the time saying it's a good name, love it more men should use the name. Melvin to me is one of the best names ever and people with this name are so cool and friendly. :)

Melvin is the English name of Gurio Umino, a character from Sailor Moon. He is Usagi's annoying, nerdy classmate, and he has a crush on her in the early episodes. (He later dates her friend Naru.)

Melvin is such a dated and unattractive name. I'm thrilled to see Melvin is going down in popularity and won't be listed within the top 1000 much longer. The name should have left the charts LONG ago.

In my country, I hear this name rarely because it's not that popular. But I love this name, and it's also my sibling's name. I believe the meaning of Melvin is "chief" or "leader".

I think that its use (and overuse) in Mad Magazine is largely responsible for its "nerdy" associations.

This is an awful name. It will cause a lot of discrimination, knowing that Melvin is used as a generic name for a geek. I can't understand why it's still used, or why it's so trendy in Sweden. I guess that some other people don't think Melvin is nerdy.

I think it should be noted that in slang the name Melvin is used in a derogatory way to described an "uncool", "nerdy", "dorky" person.

Melvin is very, very popular where I live. It seems like every other boy is named Melvin/Melwin. I'm so tired of it.

This is my father's name. Even so I can't say I really like the name. The first half is fine "Mel" it's the second half that gets me "Vin". I really really dislike the name Vin or any name that has that name in it. Except the name Vincent. I happen to really like that name. Go figure.

Melvin, Melvin, Melvin. This sounds like a terrible name! Unfortunately, I got that name stuck in my head. Honestly, it sounds nerdy and kind of, well, dumb. No offense!

It is becoming more popular in Sweden, but I doubt that it'll grow in popularity to that extent in any English-speaking country anytime soon.  9/7/2007
I think it's a fantastic name. I wish it was more popular.
