      1 Negative Comment

  • "I don't know about it as a first name. Burton is my last name but I'm in the military so everyone calls me Burton. I'm a girl so I don't really like it but have gotten used to it. Sometimes some people call me Burt, which I really hate! I think there are much better boy names so just from my military experience don't name your child it." Jan. 23, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My father's name was Burton. He didn't like the full form, but was always called "Burt," and had no problem with it. He did not like to have it spelled "Bert" (which is for Albert) at all!" Jul. 2, 2008: Report as inappropriate
