"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:

"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:

"I love my name soooo much, it is the best. So many people pronounce it wrong it douse not bother me much, but the name that bothers me the most is when people call me urine. It is so mean and if some one calles me this I will not talk to them." Dec. 11, 2017:
"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."
