    Meh. I think of the type of road. I think of Pike's Peak. I think of Pike County in Alabama, I think it is? And I think of the Mr. Pike that Pike County is named after. I think of a type of stake. But I don't think of a name, really. I can't imagine it'd be very easy to wear.

    We live in England a "Pikey" is the word used for: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=pikey

    It is not a nice word!

    I really like Pike! It reminds me of Ike which I love. I like how Pike is very unique and uncommon, but it's not too out there, nor is it a horrid, modern, made-up name like so many of the "unique" ones these days. I think it sounds very handsome and definitely usable.

    I think of fish, weapons, Captain Pike from Star Trek, and Pike from the Elvis Cole detective series. Oh, and Pike's Peak. Kind of a mixed bag of images and associations.

    All in all, I like the name. It's short and sharp, with a lot of energy, and that appeals to me.

    Without reading anyone's responses, I first think of the fish. Then I think of "Pike's Peak" even though I'm not sure that's how it's spelled.

    If I heard it as a name, I'd think "like the fish??" and be a bit puzzled as I've never heard it as a given name before.
