"I love my name "Roger." I like the meaning, the origin, and the sound of it. I think it is a GREAT name. I agree with the poster who gets irritated when people just stick a 'd' in there. :)" May. 21, 2009:
"The best name ever! Exists in different languages and I like the pronunciations. The best one is in Spanish, Ro-haer... Very masculine yet soft." Jun. 24, 2008:
"In grade school I really did not like my name. However, I could never decide on a name I would like better. In high school and college I was called "Roger Ramjet" by some of my friends. Mostly because of the "Rocky & Bullwinkle" show. Most of the adults I have known [especially the ladies] have told me they like my name. I have always been a little annoyed by the people who insist on spelling it with a "D" in the middle without even asking. Many years ago I looked up the entomology of the name. I was gratified to learn the meaning but I have never been able to learn where or how it began. I must be using the wrong method. [It probably needs to have the "D" in it!]" May. 21, 2007:
"It's my name. Everyone can pronounce it but there are a few out there who spell it with the d in the middle." Jul. 21, 2006:

"Hi, my name is Roger. I am 73 years old. My father's name was Roger. When my son was born 45 years ago, you guessed it, we named him Roger. I am told it means "handy with a spear", and I have been through the years." Sep. 16, 2013:
"My daddy's name is Roger but people call him Bo haha" May. 1, 2011:
"Sounds like the ultimate dad (in some cases grandad) name to me. Plus, it is another way of saying "understood" or "I get the message" (as often used in, say, signalling)." May. 29, 2008:
"My father's name is Roger. It's Ok. But I notice that whenever there is a dumb male in movies or in literature his name is sometimes Roger." Apr. 17, 2006:
