  • "I like the name Mortimer - A boy named this will be successful at something." Mar. 23, 2010: Report as inappropriate

      1 Negative Comment

  • "Sounds too much like Morticia Addams in The Addams Family...or the fact that the first syllable sounds like the French word "mort" (pronounced 'more'), which is translated into English as "dead" or "death". I don't like this name, it's nerdy and it's uncool by 100%." Mar. 5, 2008: Report as inappropriate

      2 Neutral Comments

  • "Also borne by American philosopher Mortimer J. Adler, who died in 2001 at the grand old age of 99 years - but (as already said) the one thing that ruined this name was its similarity to that of the female character Morticia Addams in The Addams Family." Apr. 23, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Sir Mortimer Wheeler was a famous English archaeologist, but I don't really like his first name. It makes me think of Morticia Addams from The Addams Family." Apr. 14, 2008: Report as inappropriate
