Always loved the name'simon, so we named our son Simon. Parents said he'd be teased as in Simple Simon the nursery rhyme. Noone ever'seems to know that, or any nursery rhymes now, but even if they did, my response is that you teach kids to stand up to teasing and don't give bullys the power by not naming your child a certain name! Anyway, he's a wonderful kid and never been'teased. We like that It's not that common, although I admit I rarely tell people on line the name, as I don't want to encourage othe's to pick that name!! We find more older people called Simon, than kid, and they tend to have some BrIt'sh background.

I don't like Simon although being my name. It'sounds silly and weird

12/27/2023 15:16:24

We named our first son Walker in 1985 after a child I babysat for who was born in 1978. The name was very uncommon at the time. In fact I have never met another one! He likes his name and I think it is marvelous - masculine, easy to spell and it was totally unique "back then".

10/16/2023 15:47:40

I think It's a great name! It's masculine...Biblical...a little unusual, but not strange

my brother's name is simon john, named after my great grandpa & grandpa. The name always reminds me of a fish lol.:)

As an adult I have no qualms with my name. As a child and teen, I found It'stressful to speak my own name. The name'sounds nice with pronounced with a short O sound. Phonologically speaking, the'short O is between'the long O and short I sounds. Pronouncing Sim-O-n with a long O sound or Sim-I-n with a short I sound was very ugly in my opinion and I was often worried that I would accidentally speak my name in either of these ways rather than with the balanced short O sound. It was a very silly problem to have but it did have the consequence of causing me to mumble when introducing myself. I'm over it but it was very frustrating for a long time!

No! There are so many great names out there - why choose Simon❤️❤️!

07/28/2023 21:41:46

I'm a Simon and always enjoyed my name. It rare compared to John or Peter but carries a certain gentle masculinity.

07/27/2023 18:04:14

Simon is one of the greatest names with a great pronunciation so I don't know why you think It'sound silly pleb's.

07/15/2023 05:42:58

Simon is a great name, very masculine and strong! And It's not too common, either.

07/05/2023 09:08:08

We named our son Spencer and he was the only Spencer throughout his school years. It was quite unique. It is a strong name. Our son is very honest and straightforward, very giving and generous. He is a loyal friend. He is an Eagle Scout and a very hard worker. His employers love him. When we named him Spencer, the only other'spencer that people really knew was Spencer Tracy, the fictional character. It is a good association for the name'spencer.

I love the name'simon and always have. I even had a doll as a kid that I named "Simon." I hope to have a son soon that I can name'simon! :) I agree with the other comments that Simon is a very strong, masculine, traditional but not too common (classic is a good way to put it!) name.
