Despite being a little dated, Stuart holds endearing qualities and could become popular again in the future. The reference to Stuart Little is as sweet as honey.

I love this name. The Stuart Little association certainly does no harm, or the fact that it is a "Gone with the Wind" name - one of the Tarleton twins. It's a handsome name, by no means overused nowadays. I like Stu as a nickname. The Stewart spelling is attractive too, but I prefer Stuart.

No way...!!!!!!! It's just wrong.

My mind goes firstly to the Stuart Little mouse character when I first see this name. I can see how Stuart can be a more modern-classic name choice, in vein with George, Vincent, Randall, Kenneth, Martin and many more. But personally I can only imagine this on my grandfather's peers. I much prefer this Stuart spelling to Stewart, which has the shudder-inducing nickname Stewie and the association to the Family Guy talking baby.
