  • "I love my name "Roger." I like the meaning, the origin, and the sound of it. I think it is a GREAT name. I agree with the poster who gets irritated when people just stick a 'd' in there. :)" May. 21, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "The best name ever! Exists in different languages and I like the pronunciations. The best one is in Spanish, Ro-haer... Very masculine yet soft." Jun. 24, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "In grade school I really did not like my name. However, I could never decide on a name I would like better. In high school and college I was called "Roger Ramjet" by some of my friends. Mostly because of the "Rocky & Bullwinkle" show. Most of the adults I have known [especially the ladies] have told me they like my name. I have always been a little annoyed by the people who insist on spelling it with a "D" in the middle without even asking. Many years ago I looked up the entomology of the name. I was gratified to learn the meaning but I have never been able to learn where or how it began. I must be using the wrong method. [It probably needs to have the "D" in it!]" May. 21, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "It's my name. Everyone can pronounce it but there are a few out there who spell it with the d in the middle." Jul. 21, 2006: Report as inappropriate

Never met him but if you are reading this and lived in Chelmsford in the 1950s you obviously made a good impression!" Sep. 3, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi, my name is Roger. I am 73 years old. My father's name was Roger. When my son was born 45 years ago, you guessed it, we named him Roger. I am told it means "handy with a spear", and I have been through the years." Sep. 16, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daddy's name is Roger but people call him Bo haha" May. 1, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My father's name is Roger. It's Ok. But I notice that whenever there is a dumb male in movies or in literature his name is sometimes Roger." Apr. 17, 2006: Report as inappropriate
