  • "I think alvin is kinda uncommon so when you run into an alvin you remember them, also it's been touched upon,but chances are you aren't the first one to say alvin like Dave from Alvin and the Chipmunks. Not even close." Jul. 19, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "i reckon alvin is a very special name. no one in my school has Alvin this name. although it mite sound a bit cliche but i think it fits well with my surname. alvin chong, i believe? haha. im just in love with my name alvin. =] good name !" Aug. 23, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Angelous Alvin H. i like my name just fine and never had a problem with being confused with someone else. I do say some names should be retired for at least 10 years. After that, one may again use them. In a country where we pride ourselves on being different we seem to fall short when it comes to naming our kids. Most of it could just be plain laziness in searching for a name. and remember moms its not against the law to MAKE UP a name. That way next year when I ask John, or Jose to raise his hand 10 hands out of 20 wont go up.for instants the name Brittany wasn't bad when I first heard it, but did half a million people have to use it? Another example are the silly people that change the Spelling of a name as to give it some individuality. Come on fokes,when you call your son/daughter its still going to be STEVEN or JENNIFER. Heres a new idea want some individuality? Name them something DIFFERENT." Jun. 25, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "I can't hear it without thinking of Alvin and the Chipmunks" Oct. 10, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "Despite the "beloved by all" meaning of this name, it sounds too much like Alvin and the Chipmunks, and I don't think British pop songster Alvin Stardust (real name Bernard Jewry) did much good either when he was famous in the Seventies and Eighties. So try naming your son Calvin instead as THAT name sounds a bit better than Alvin and is probably now overcoming those old Calvin Coolidge associations." May. 26, 2008: Report as inappropriate
