    It's my uncle's name.  I really like it.  I would definitely consider it if it weren't already used in our close family and if it worked with our last name.

    My first thought is Bruce Jenner. Those damn Kardashians!

    I can't picture the name Bruce on an infant or toddler.

    Love it.  Strong, masculine and underused.  It was on my short list.

    It is my day's name and of course that of The Boss. I like it, but do have a hard time picturing it on a baby. I think it is refreshing.

     It's a nice strong sounding name. I know a few, they are in their 50's. I work with one and we call him Brucie affectionately.

    I have a hard time picturing it on a baby.  More an adult name.  But babies turn into adults so I think I'd use it if you love it.

    Sorry, I hate it. It's my grandfathers name and I've always found it to be very unappealing.

    Bruce makes me think of Bruce the Moose. But that might be because I am from Maine and went to camp one too many times.

    It is definitely not a name that I would consider.

    I like it.  In an era of OLD names, Bruce does sound refreshing.

    Not a fan. It's bulky to me.

    It is just one of those names that when I say it I get an unflattering picture in my mind of the person it belongs to like Agnes or Hilda or Fergus.

    My first thoughts within 3 seconds of reading it:

    Bruce Jenner, Bruce Springsteen, Bruce the shark from Finding Nemo.

    The name is NMS but it's really not too bad.

    I think I just found out why they named Bruce the shark in Finding Nemo, Bruce.  The 3 mechanical sharks in Jaws were nicknamed Bruce.

    Bruce and Abram are the only remaining names on our short list.  I lean more toward Bruce.

    This is exactly how I feel, it is a very unattractive name to me.

    I love that it is a strong name but my first thought is that it seems so 'old' for a little baby.

    I dated a super hot football player named Bruce in uni so I don't see it as stodgy or elderly at all. DH suggested it once because he thinks it's a strong, manly name and was very disappointed I have an ex named Bruce.

    I like Bruce. It's refreshing.

    My only real connection is Bruce Smith the Buffalo Bills player, whenever he attends a home game the whole crowd goes nuts and chants BBBBBBRRRRRUUUCCCEEEE in a deep voice, so I tend to do that in my head when I hear it.  Totally random association and not a bad association however.   

     

    Not a bad association at all. Go Bills!

     

    Anyway, it's a family name for me. It sounds a little dated, but I like it.
