  • "Thats my brothers name, I love it. But, when ever I tell people my siblings' names and I always have to repeat my brother's. "What? Rory?" "Yes RORY!" "Oh! Like from Gilmore Girls!" O.O lol" Sep. 26, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name (Rory) and have tracked the entymology of it through its Irish roots; but that doesn't mean that everyone else knowns its origins... namely that its a masculine name. I can't count the amount of times that I have been told, "that sounds like a girls name". Yeah, when the waitress calls out Rory "Gilmore" (from the tv show Gilmore Girls) as she brings your food just to screw with you... you know your name -albeit cool and rarely heard- is sadly confused. But I would change my name for the world." Mar. 9, 2007: Report as inappropriate
