Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
I always think of Scott Baio when I hear this name. I find the name to be attractive, solid and rugged. Scott is a classic, so it will never go out of style.

I actually love the name Scott. It's strong and masculine. I know several Scott's and all of them are decent and hardworking. Phonetically it has a lot of strength, and any name that ends with a double T is cool in my opinion.

I must admit that Scott is quite attractive as a first name, but I'm not going to use it because of Disick.

Where one 'anonymous' user stated:
'All the Scott's I've met were troublemakers. I have two Scott's in my family who are mean.'

Another: NiamhWitch commented
'I picture a Scott as being athletic, intelligent, and good at what he does, but doesn't have an inflated head.'

I am Jason Scott and I'm happy to admit I bear both traits, so firstly I have to agree with the first comment, I am a troublemaker, not the kind to create trouble that might end with someone getting hurt but the quick witted type that speaks my mind, honest, blunt and to the point and I can also be prone to winding people up. Just for my own amusement.
The second comment is tricky to admit to, based on the last line. But again honest, blunt and to the point wins that one in my opinion, the rest is pretty much bang on.

The name Scott derives from 'Scottus' which in the Middle Ages was the Latin term for "Irish or Gaelic", so the name means Irish-born Gael." "Scotti" was the name that the Romans called the Irish.
The spelling 'Scottus' has the authority in early manuscripts until perhaps the 11th century.
Occasionally also named 'Scottigena' ("Irish-born") in manuscripts.

Going slightly sideways now, my forename Jason in Hebrew means healer or one who heals, again I will help and have on many occasion helped many people fix whatever needed fixing without and often refusing payment in return.
I was also born 24th December the day before Jesus, as we all know that story is made up, and a lie.
I don't lie, I'm living, people can see me, therefore more believable than Jesus.
I am a Bench Joiner - Cabinet Maker (that's a Carpenter for anyone that might not know but I work with the metric system, more accuracy and also the best trouble making craftsman that, hopefully, I've been intelligent enough to end this without an inflated head. I take pride from these traits as I've been told by many, I just don't disagree.
I'm neither Scots or Irish, a little Welsh but mostly English.

An annoying jock/bro type name. Most Scotts I've known have been smart mouthed jerks. For some reason they seem to think they're better than other people too. They're not.

Scott is pronounced SKOT in English with a short o (ɒ), a sound which is probably most easily explained as like the sound it makes in 'watch'. It is not pronounced SKOHT. That would rhyme with boat.

I used to like it when I was younger, but it has since become too associated with college frat boys who think they are entitled to anything and everything they want. Not a bad name otherwise, but that's the first thing that now comes to mind.

My name is Scott, or I go by Scottie and one of my favorite comedies of all time is EuroTrip. The main actor is Scott Mechlowicz and he plays the main character Scott Thompson and there is the song that has gone viral on youtube and has millions of views from the past 5 years called #SCOTTIEDOESNTKNOW! Catchy tune and love it when I think of anybody named Scott whether first, middle, last makes no difference. Just a fun loving, full of life eccentric, yet very excited and jubilant kind of guy, very spontaneous and sporadic as if our whole life is a Mardi Gras party. How could that be a bad thing? PARTY ON AND ROCK ON!

I personally find it very funny that this name is in the top 100 in Scotland. It's a cool name, though. Fits all ages and is surprisingly uncommon in babies born today (but very common with other age groups).

Americans have ruined this name. It would sound just fine, but it just makes me think of mean and hateful conservative males who hate gays, women, racial minorities, etc. It also reminds me of that annoying singer from Creed, Scott Stapp. At best, this makes me think of vapid, dumb frat boys.
slight night shiver  5/5/2008
Wow, slight_night_shiver. Apparently all men and conservatives are bigots, and all Americans are like this, so true. Reeks of a lot of ignorance, Scott is a great name and sounds really cool for a man.

I gave this name to my son as a second middle name. It's my maiden name and I wanted to pass it on if I ever had a son.
I like the name Scott. It's short, simple, and easy to remember. I picture a Scott as being athletic, intelligent, and good at what he does, but doesn't have an inflated head.

I don't like this name anymore. I was indifferent about it at first, and then I read a book with a character named "Scott" in it, and now I'm practically scarred. So, yeah, I really despise this name.
