Too-ticky Says:


Sounds sooooo dull. Like an accountant name or something. Not nerdy at all.

RoddyThlayli Says:


Hate Bert. I really, really hate the name Bert. There is no reason for it--in fact, I have an awesome grandfather whose name is Herbert and goes by Bert--but I absolutely loathe Bert and almost any name connected to it, except for Robert and Gilbert. Herbert, Adalbert, Albert, Cuthbert. They all sound so awful to me.
