  • "Quite popular in the United States in the first quarter of the 20th century, partly as a tribute to the 17th-century English poet John Milton. However, it is thought that the American actor and singer Milton Berle ruined the name in recent decades, which is why the majority consider it to be a grandad name today. Will it at least make a slight comeback at all? Or is it as likely to drop out of the American top 1,000 in the way Earl and Herbert and the female names Gladys and Shirley have done in recent years? You decide!" May. 25, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "alot of people dont have milton as a name so thats pretty cool but i hate when people expect me to be an old white man because of my name or when people 1st hear it they pronounce it wrong" Jan. 15, 2008: Report as inappropriate
