  • "My name is Arnold and I think it was given to me at birth in 1978 mainly because Arnold Schwarzenegger's success during the 70's! I don't mind it, it's different! However, I have plenty of nick names that follow it.. "The Gova-na", "Arneezy", "Arnz", "Ah-null", and of course "Arnie"!" Sep. 22, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Arnold. It would be a fine name if not for Diff'rent Strokes and Green Acres." Oct. 6, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably the only macho man with this otherwise weak and inept name, which was quite popular with Jewish-American families in the early 20th century (think Arnold Schoenberg the German-born U.S. composer). It is out of fashion now, and I don't think Arnie Schwarzenegger (also known as "The Terminator" or even "The Governator") could ever have helped the name." Jun. 3, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Despite Arnold Schwarzenegger, the bodybuilder-turned-actor("The Terminator")-turned-politician, I usually think of this name as being in the same category as Ethel and Beulah but in the grandpa guise." Oct. 11, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "Sounds like an old grandfather to me, not a very nice name for a child!" Jul. 21, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My dad is Arnold, however he has always prefered Arnie!!" Jul. 3, 2007: Report as inappropriate
