What's wrong with the name Gary?


Indistinguishable from the name "Harry" in the Russian language.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

Raz is right. -MadImmortalMan March of 2017

I am a HUGE fan of pets with human names. So agreed.

I have this friend who has a cat named "David" which has lead to a number of hilarious mixups with people thinking she's talking about her boyfriend. ("David woke me up today licking my feet").

What if the town is named after a human, like "Gary, Indiana?"

I just wanted to check something about Gary, Indiana, so I googled it.  First hit is the Wiki page.

Then comes the "People Also Ask".  The first question is "What's so bad about Gary Indiana". :lol: :(

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

Where in the world is Gary Indiana?

Northern edge of Indiana, about 60 miles east of Chicago.

It's a "go through" city on your way to anywhere else. :P
