  • "Elmer the Patchwork Elephant of many colours has a cousin called Wilbur, who is the black and white elephant." Jun. 10, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "The 96th most popular name for American baby boys at its peak of popularity in 1910 when the Wright brothers, Wilbur and Orville, were around, but subsequently declined and dropped out of the U.S. boys' top 1,000 after the 1970s. I think E.B. White's novel 'Charlotte's Web' with Wilbur the Pig ruined this name for eternity. It's one of them ultimate geeky names alongside Mortimer, Elmer, Adolph, Melvin, and Lester - not to mention the female names Beulah, Hortense, Eunice, Irma, and Ethel, which I think are terminally old ladyish."
