"My name is Abner. It is never spelled nor pronounced incorrectly. I have NEVER met another Abner (A goal that I hope to one day achieve).
Very briefly, I think the name Abner is an excellent choice yet risky and one which takes patience to love.
As a child I hated my name but I grew into it and also appreciate it and love it. I always get "I have never me another Abner before". It's original and people remember you. I also feel that I don't look or act like an "Abner" (I know, what does that mean?). People do have conceptions of what an "Abner" will be like. Fortunately, I don't fit the cliché of a "nerd" or "red-neck" or old-fashioned" or any of the words that i have heard used to describe my name. Another name that seems to generate the same sentiment is Poindexter.
I like being juxtaposed to my name. Instead of being another Josh, Zach or Matt, I am Abner an individual." Aug. 18, 2005:
