    Grover is pretty cool. I believe the kid makes the name, but w/ the little furry blue monster, he’d have a LOT of personality to live up to.

      I love Grover, but Elmo is ten times better…
      I don’t think I would have the nerve to use either up front though…
      I prefer Elmo for the St Elmo’s Fire connection… Presidents have no importance to me…

        Elmo is pretty rocking! What other characters names do you like? What is the St Elmo’s fire connection? No I wouldn’t name my child after a President either.

      I really like both Grover & Homer but seems the cartoon characters will always be the first thing people think and they are a lot to live up to, guess its also like calling your child Angel, Princess or Patience.

    I’d pity a boy with this name. I have to say it’s worse than Montgomery 😛 It also has a gross/rough sound I don’t like.

    Sorry, Grover is all dog name to me. I knew a guy named Grover and it still didn’t grow on me.
