    It's an association for me, but certainly not the only one. I know many men of varying ages, races and stations named Malcolm. I think it's a sturdy, handsome name any boy would enjoy having.

    I agree with all the posters who've mentioned stress. I got them tons in college, but now in my mid-30s I never do. Just pluck 'em and move on. :p

    I would've been Kevin (sigh) as a boy and was very nearly Andrea as a girl. No offense to the Kevins and Andreas of the world, but neither of those excites me.
