My dad's name is Bruce, and although I'm a little biased, he's one of the top nicest guys in the world.
My Dad's name was Bruce also and he was probably the most wonderful, loving, kind and generous person ever. He passed away from prostrate cancer last year at the too young age of 56, and worked for a university for over 30 years and I can't even remember how many countless people have come up to me and tell me that they wish he was their dad too! I've never met anyone who didn't love my father! Bruce is a great name!!
I love this name because I love Batman (1966) and Batman's real name is Bruce.
My son is named William Bruce. We named him after my husband's father who had passed about a year before my son was born. When my husband asked how his dad felt about us naming our child after him, he was ecstatic and requested that we call him Bruce, just like him. We did and now I can't imagine having named him anything thing else. He is smart as a whip and happy all the time.
My art teacher is called Bruce.
