"Kurt is Cobain. Why has the popularity of this name dropped? I feel like Cobain would give a boost on the popularity of the name." Jan. 12, 2021:
"Named my son, Kurt. Agree with what people say regarding how people think it's Kirk. You really need to accentuate that T sound. My son likes his name. It's not common in the states at all. I like that , and don't feel it will ever become popular and trendy. Just what I was looking for in naming my child." May. 30, 2020:
"YUH DIS NAME GANG ON MY MOMMA ON MY AUNTIE DIS NAME SLAPPPSZZZ OMM ONG ON CRIP" Mar. 19, 2020:
"Especially awesome now that we Kurt's have fallen out of the top 1000 baby names.
Easy to pronounce, easy to write, easy to spell (two spellings, however), YET....we're the only one with our name in every class we're in. It's a name your child will OWN and not have to share with anyone else. (without being a bizarre name like Ozymandius or something)" Dec. 10, 2013:
"I love my name because its different! Like others have said some think its Kirk or Curtis I was born in 1972.I have never been to Germany yet buy someday!I also know very few Kurts and I am a Strong man with size 15 shoes!" Apr. 13, 2009:
"This is the most masculine sounding name I know. My son is named Kurt, and I love the name. I have met very few Kurts in my life but each was a strong, confident man, including my son!" Nov. 18, 2008:
"Kurt is a great name; yes common in Germany and old. My son is Kurt Walter; named after old German family members." Feb. 7, 2008:

"My name is Kurt, and most people think that it is a nickname, but it isn't. Most people spell it with a "C" unless they ask me. I really like my name. I've never met anyone with my name, at least, with a "K"." Feb. 21, 2006:

"My son is called Kurt. Born in 2014! I'm sure he'll be the only one I know for a while. I love it!" Jan. 8, 2017:
"Kurt is my own name, but I've never liked it that much--mostly because I like long names, but now I'll have to reconsider it seeing the opinions on this site.
The most annoying thing about having the name Kurt, though, is having it get mixed up with Curt, Curtis, or most annoyingly "Kirk".
As a side note, Kurt Cobain died on this exact day, 17 years ago--RIP. :S" Apr. 5, 2011:
"Born in 1968, I didn't know another "Kurt", no matter how it was spelled, until I moved to Houston. In 40 years I've only met one(!) other person named Kurt (spelled Ku). I think it's hard to say, and be heard correctly. Captain Kirk is a popular rebuttal when people meet me. They don't realize that that is a different name. I usually say "Kurt with a K", or "Kurt with a T". Kinda gets laborious. But it's my name, so don't wear it out.....kgr" Feb. 27, 2008:
"Growing up I only knew one other person with the name Kurt. Usually people spell it with a "C", but my mother didn't like this because it reminder her of the name Curtis, which she didn't like. Now I know two others with the name Kurt, but I don't see it much. It suits me well; it's somewhat unique, short, and fits well with my last name, both of which are German." Sep. 13, 2005:
