"Not much used as a first name in the U.S. today (unlike about 80 years or more ago), but is popular in Sweden at the present time." Mar. 4, 2010:

"This is my name and it's been a plague on me my whole life. Could I have been someone different or aspired to higher heights with a different name? No, but life sure would have been easier with a better name.
If you are seriously planning to name your child Melvin then something is wrong with you." Dec. 15, 2008:
"Quite popular in the early 20th century but then in the Fifties, Jerry Lewis' spastic character Melvin came on the scene, and I believe that was what ruined this name. It's part of that unfortunate Wilbur/Elmer/Mortimer/Adolph group of names considered to be terminally out of date." May. 19, 2008:
