  • "I think it's due for a comeback... has a nice ring" Dec. 6, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "During the Eighties when Bruce Springsteen sang 'Born In The U.S.A.' amongst numerous other sons, Clarence Clemons played the saxophone and the trombone. The name was probably now used mostly in African-American families while generally considered infrequent and old-fashioned." Jun. 1, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Most famous as the name of American lawyer Clarence Darrow and of the guardian angel in the 1946 film It's A Wonderful Life. It sounds very nerdy to me and I don't exactly render this name as a classic, but it was in the U.S. top 20 a century ago when it peaked in popularity." Jan. 16, 2008: Report as inappropriate
