"My friends name is Perry. James.
He's cool." Sep. 25, 2008:
"I didn't know of anyone w/ the same name except for Perry Como until I was in middle school then I had two teachers named Perry. Being hispanic it's not common, but both my teachers were also hispanic. Then I met or heard of a few other guys in my town also named Perry, all who were hispanic. I have only met a few outside my hometown after leaving for college. It's very uncommon, and most people think you say "Terry, or Harry" when they ask your name so you have to repeat it several times. Also can never find any souvenirs with my name... I think maybe one time I did find a small tag with my name." Apr. 30, 2007:

"My name is Perry. I'm 16, and a lot of people call me Perry the Platypus or Perrywinkle. I like the name Perry. A disadvantage is the amount of people who spell it wrong. I know some more Perry 's who are very artistic as well as I am. That name tends to motivate people to be more original." May. 17, 2010:
