Personal experiences with the name Freeman: | Edit

My grandfather is named William Freeman but goes by Freeman to all those who know him (apart from us grandchildren who all called him Grandpa Will). He has always been a very key member of his local community and there is a library named after him in the town where he lives.

I named my first son Freeman as we hoped he would be a free thinker and make a difference. It's a strong and clearly masculine name, and has been well accepted at schools and in society. He's living up to his name. I think names are important benchmarks and have subtle effects on the holder.
