"In the same category as Ethel, Eunice, Doris, and Bertha - all names of 1900-1910 that are now out of fashion." Mar. 5, 2008:

"A bit dated, Irma is a decent name, it reminds us pop culture fans of
Irma the waitress from the
Garfield comic strip by Jim Davis and Irma from the 1987-1996
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, cartoon series" Dec. 13, 2020:
"The 1963 film 'Irma La Douce' with Shirley MacLaine never helped this name at all. It's definitely in the terminally old-fashioned category alongside Ethel, Beulah, Eunice, Hortense, and Bertha - not to mention the grandpa names of Wilbur, Elmer, Mortimer, Hyman, Lester, Adolph, Melvin, Myron, and Irving. It may as well sound like 'Irving' (as in Irving Berlin), mightn't it?" Jun. 15, 2008:
