"My brother's name is Sheldon. We're close in age so we had mutual friends growing up. When anyone would try to make a nickname out of his name (esp. "Shelly") he would abruptly let them know that his name is "Sheldon"... S-H-E-L-D-O-N. He is very intelligent (PhD), athletic (sub 6-minute miler), and has a wonderful family of his own."

"I couldn't believe it when my friend told me that she was going to name her son this. AWFUL! Why would someone do that to an innocent baby? It sounds very wimpy and I'm sure he's going to get beat up on the playground." Apr. 4, 2008:
