Comments and insights on the name Urban: | Edit

Our son's name is Urban and, in general, people love the name. We receive a lot of compliments. Our only complaint is that about every 3rd person mis-hears us and thinks we are saying Herman, Irvine, or Irving. I think he may have a hard time with telemarketers in the future.
