Gender: M Meaning of Gary: "spearman" Origin of Gary: English Gary's Popularity in 2014: #560

When Gary cracked the Top 10 in 1950, it was one of the first nonclassic boys' names to do so, largely due to Gary (born Frank) Cooper, who was renamed after Gary, Indiana, his agent's hometown. Now, a 65 years later, Gary is down at Number 560, and has lost any glitter it had. May we suggest the fuller name Gareth?
