"I was born in 1961 and named Kirk. I was bummed when I couldn't find a toy License plate for my Bike. I've since come to really appreciate my name because I like Capt. Kirk. I also find I'm usually the only person in the crowd named Kirk. No rubbernecking to see if they are talking about me. :)" Jun. 9, 2020:
"People often hear it as Kurt, and will pronounce it as such. Some teasing in school ie Kirk the Jerk. But overall a great name." Jan. 29, 2007:
