  • "My name is Rupert and I am 41 years old living in Quebec, Canada. My parents are British and that's why I got saddled with it. I like my name because it is different, however it did cause me quite a few problems growing up. I was called RootBeer, Rubber, etc...etc..and it bothered me then, but it doesn't anymore. The problem living in Quebec is that the majority of the population is french and Rupert is completely unheard of, so they sometimes think my name is Whopper (like Burger King!!). I have met one other Rupert in my life, while I was in Jamaica. I was SOOOO excited! He was not because the name is not uncommon there....He probably thought I was weird! Then again, I AM weird....just like my name!" Oct. 22, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My first name is Rupert, I hated it as a kid because of the cartoon Rupert the Bear, but love it now!" Apr. 29, 2007: Report as inappropriate
