    See, I hear Norman and immediately think Norman Bates haha!

    I think Norbert is definitely useable, and its generally not a person's name that determines whether they'll be a geek. It might be a bit of a stretch, but I could see Noble as a nickname for Norbert?

    All -bert names are nerdy to me.

    Norbert is so far off the bubble it seems trying to come back, as stephanie said, it has a hipster quality to it. A would-you-believe-it quality that puts it beyond "normal geekiness" if you will. I could see a rockstar naming his kid Norbert for that reason.

    As a middle name it seems pretty harmless.

    I actually might like Norman even less. It does remind me of Psycho and Rose Madder and the horror genre in general.
