  • "My husband's name is Bjorn and many people in our native country (Sri Lanka) can't even pronounce it! It's written in all sorts of ways too, but I prefer the original spelling, which I believe is Swedish. He was named after the tennis player. The name's no longer a favorite, but I believe it was popular during the late 70s and early 80s." Jan. 18, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "The name itself is actually pretty good. Where I take issue with this name is that it can put your child in danger. I have a friend who is racist against Swedish people and just gets so angry whenever he hears a Swedish name. Don't even ask me to explain what happens when meatballs are served as appetizers on toothpicks." May. 1, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My husband and I love the name Bjorn. To us it is a manly name, covers some of my swedish background and we also Love that it means bear. We have a thing for bears. We want to use it as a middle name for our son, but we have gotten so many negative comments when we tell people. They bring up baby bjorn a lot and say he'll be teased even as a middle name because of how different it is. One person even laughed when i mentioned the name. It has pushed us to name him something else but im still sad to not use it because i love it so.I hate that people are so immature about a name that really has nothing embarrassing about it." Aug. 21, 2016: Report as inappropriate
