  • "When I was young, I was ambivalent about the name Tom but I now that I am an adult I like it. My older siblings still call me Tom, which I used to hate as a child as well but now I find it endearing. I've know some people who insist on being called Thomas, but I find that pretentious. Tom works just fine for me. I tried it spelled as Thom, but that too was too pretentious for me--works for Thom Yorke of Radiohead though!" Apr. 21, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born Thomas, but go by Tom. Sometimes people call me Tommy, but it's not my preferred nickname. As Tom Selleck put it, "Tommy is a 5 year old boy with an all day sucker!"" Nov. 10, 2008: Report as inappropriate

You have Tom Cruise Tom Hanks, Tom Jones, Tom Brady (even though I am NOT a Patriots fan!;-) Tom Seaver... then again there is the derogatory Tom Thumb and "Uncle Tom" (great book, though!), still a GREAT name."
