    Is Norbert really a geek forever?

    I always have a significant amount of trouble finding boy's names that I like, and when I do find some, they are usually very similar to the point that they would not work in a sibset. Lately, I've been crushing on Norbert (right now only for a middle name) and I was perusing the Nameberry lists when I discovered this one;
    http://nameberry.com/list/135/Geeks-Forever
    Which of course, contained Norbert, and so did this list;
    http://nameberry.com/list/250/Names-...ool-Enough-For
    Plus the name description did it absolutely no justice.

    Is Norbert really that uncool?
    And if not, what nicknames could you use other than Bert?

    I don't really associate Norbert with nerdiness, mostly because that name reminds me of The Angry Beavers (90s Nickelodeon show).

    Well, I just watched the first Harry Potter movie again last night, so obviously it's a dragon's name. :-)

    That said, it's certainly not a name you'd associate with the coolest kid in school, but that's not the end of the world. As for nicknames, Bertie would be my favourite. I can't think of any other except Norb or Norbie, none of which are that cool.

    I haven't watched Harry Potter in ages, but the name Norbert immediately makes me think of dragons too! I actually kind of like that it reminds me of Harry Potter, though.

    I don't think it's attractive at all. Norman feels much more usable.
