I was named after my grandfather, who changed the original spelling from Ulyess to Uless. His name was supposedly drawn from Ulysses S. Grant. He used to get mail addressed to Useless on occasion.

I love the name! I have loved it ever'since I was in high school lit and my fantastic teacher read the last few lines of the poem "Ulysses". To strive, To seek, To find And not to yield. It has always held a tone with me. I think it is a powerful name and even'though it means wrathful it is still good. Wrathful can be interpreted in several ways and means next to nothing without context. Ulysses is a great name.

It was my grand father's name,and,due in no small part to the eccentricities of rural African Americans he was given'the opportunity to pick it himself.... go figure.

It's a Unique name, most of the time people usually pronounce it wrong. The right way to say it is "U ly sse s" but in my name there's no s at the end this is the European way to write it. Same origin Greek.

My 2nd son is a 3rd generation Ulysses after his father who is named after his father. It is usually mispronounced, but he handles it well. he's only 7 years old, but he owns his name and humbly corrects people. My mom would always tell me, "Your name is the most important thing about you." His name means wrathful or angry, and I teach him to be angry with injustice and wicked behaviors. Your child's name means whatever you instill in them as their worth to the world. Thank you, MississippI'mother

I'm from Turkey, so there is not much of a chance for me to get away with naming my child as great of a name like Ulysses but I'd like to chip in my two cents, who cares about the initial bullying I was teased for my surname for my entire life, It's no big deal, that's an awesome name.
