All I can think about is the book Mortimer by Robert Munsch.

This is my guilty pleasure name. I love it, but I wouldn't use it because it does sound a bit morbid.

Makes me thank of 'Mortimer Folchart' from the Inkheart series-his nickname was Mo (without an e).

I like this name. Morty is a cute nickname, too. Not fond of Timmy, though. Apparently, Mickey Mouse's name was originally supposed to be Mortimer Mouse.

I dunno. I think it's kind of cute, with Tim or Timmy as a nickname.
