  • "I like my first name, Ramsey. Often, wise guys like to associate it with Ramses (a prophylactic ), just to see if it bothers me. I usually just laugh it off, considering the source (dumb SOB ;-) )" Mar. 18, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is a great boys name. Cute on a toddler, distinguished on a professional. I think it's a solid choice for any boy. I don't see it as a girls name, personally." Dec. 11, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "my son's name is Ramsey. besides having a Scottish/English meaning, there is also a name usually spelled Ramzi, pronounced Ram-zee, which means "Symbolic" in Arabic. we usually pronounce Ramsey as Ram-zee, but Ram-see and Rahm-zee are fine as well. I've met three very young Ramzis, and two Ramseys: both the Ramseys were adult, over 50. one was a Ph.D. at Texas Tech University. sometimes people think we are saying Ramses/ Rameses, like Rameses the Great... not a bad connotation, though" Nov. 27, 2005: Report as inappropriate
