An extremely hideous name. There are certain names that I just don't get how they could have *ever* been considered acceptable. The name Seymour is a prime example. Nerdy, awkward, and just plain ugly. Maybe it's okay for a "cute ugly" pet like a sphinx cat or something similar, but never for a person.

I love this name so much. It has a lot of personal significance to me, in addition to Little Shop of Horrors being one of my favorite movies. It sounds like an adventurous name, to "see more" of the world. Although, it is now hopelessly out of fashion and way too easy to make fun of, so sadly I can't use it for a son. Devastating, because it's one of my very favorites.

Aside from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Seymour" makes me think of the nerdy main character of "Little Shop of Horrors" and the song he and his girlfriend sing, "Suddenly Seymour." It sounds like a joke name.

It's dated and just sounds unpleasant. There's also the infamous joke name "Seymour Butts" and its many variants.

Such a dorky name. This reminds me of Principal Skinner getting yelled at by his overbearing mother.

The name Seymour makes me giggle for some reason. I like the name, but it's a bit too goofy for my tastes. It makes me picture a walrus.

Seymour is a cat name. He would probably be a little grumpy cat, but the grumpiness would be so cute on little Seymour cat.

I hate this name on a human. I can picture Principal Skinner's mother yelling at her son. However, on an animal, I think it's cute.

The character Seymour Guado from Final Fantasy X is not actually the main antagonist, but rather a madman who appears to be such during much of the game. Appalled by the suffering of the inhabitants of the world, he planned to destroy it, but is defeated by the protagonist finally after defying death itself in attempt to accomplish his ends.

The true antagonist of this game is Yu Yevon, the summoner responsible for a great deal of that which Seymour despises but this is not revealed until very late in the story.

It goes without saying that this name is very old-fashioned, and it probably sounded a bit geeky even when it was common. To use it today would seem pretentious and elitist, and the poor boy would be laughed at. Besides, this name would create a comical effect with the wrong surname, and it reminds plenty of people of Seymour Skinner on the Simpsons. I can immediately hear the sharp sound of principal Skinner's mother's voice in my head when I even read this name somewhere.
