Now that the show has gone into reruns, does anybody still love Raymond? Though it's been long dormant, some parents -- including Jack Nicholson -- are finding its cool component, largely through the nickname Ray.
Raymond was introduced into England by the Normans and was a favorite in the time of the Crusades.
Raymond was a Top 20 name in 1900, and continued to be popular through the era of Raymond Chandler and Raymond Burr and Raymond Massey. More recently there was the eminent short story writer Raymond Carver.
Bottom line: Raymond hasn't quite crossed into Clunky Cool territory yet, but he might just follow his own nickname there.
