Random musing...

I was over at Romancescam.com and noticed that every third scammer has "Kelvin" as a first or last name. I can honestly say that I have NEVER met anyone named "Kelvin" and I just started to wonder how all these Nigerian scammers decided this was the quintessential American name.

That's all... Very Happy

I have a lad named Kelvin.
Yes he makes as much sense as his name too.
I told him I loved his name and it was a good strong name.
AND of course he does it backwards like most of them do too.
He told me he was either 43 or 34 he gets confused but he used a pic of an older man with white hair.
He is definitely a Kelvin. Laughing

Kelvin MacKenzie used to be the editor of the Sun newspaper in the UK. He now writes a weekly column in the said Red Top.

All the best

We have several (!) Chinese grad students here named Kelvin. Maybe people pick it up in chemistry class?

I can see the Chinese grad students but I'm not sure Nigerian lads are clever enough to give a shout-out to the absolute temperature scale. Very Happy

I have met several people named Kelvin, most from Canada, plus two midwestern Mennonites.
Just like many other names there is a massive amount of regional variation in its popularity. There's a lot of interesting information about names here:

(No, I'm not looking for baby names at the moment!)

The comedy show D-Generation had a character named Kelvin Cunnington. He's explained in this forum:

Would that be the Kelvans, who turned redshirt security personnel into styrofoam icosahedrons, and in true form looked like Cousin Itt having a bad hair day? We should start renaming any Kelvin lad to Kelvan. It's the new thang!

Pinkdragon, following firehouse5's link, we find that Calvin is originally old French, and has something to do with baldness. Kelvin is from the Gaelic, and means "narrow water". So no, they're not related...

I had a boss who called himself Kelvin, though his real name was Adrian. He was as dodgy as the lad kelvins and the reason I no longer work in retail (the police raided the joint). Ah the 1990's: they can just piss right off...

I had a baiting account named after this school, which wasn't a million miles from where I used to live. I now no longer live in the same hemisphere...

I particularly like their motto-very lad appropriate.

I vaguely remember a guy my sister dated named 'Kelvin', who was kind of a bland, prep school product supposedly from 'money'. So bland, all I can remember is my sister spoke his name so wierdly, and to his face, I thought it was a sarcastic nickname. 'oh KEL----VVVVINNNN, where are we going to eat tonight, KELLLLVVVINNN???'.

What would be the ultimate name a lad would think 'suave'?

Curtis Kelvin Williams?

Kelvin Kevin Smithers?

Barrister Curtis Kelvinator?

or female names?

Kelvin Lucy Sandy?
