He might have the brain the size of a planet.

Reminds me of the robot in THGTTG.

I like Marv in Charlie and Lola. He has such a cute voice.

Paranoid Android. Sorry.

Love. It.

He was a friend of mine....

I love it.

I hate it.

I thought it was an awful name. Then I worked with a Marvin. Now I think it's hideously awful.

It's dreadful. I used to go to school with a Marvin, he was always getting into fights over it. His parents seemed so middle of the road. I used to look at them and think "what the fuck induced you to call him that?"

I have a pain in all the diodes down my left hand side.

Great name.

How are posts saying "I used to go to school/work with a Marvin" helpful anyway? Every name has different associations for different people, would you REALLY be put off by a name you like because some random person on the internet went to school with someone of that name who they happened to dislike? Bizarre!

Maybe I don't belong in this section. hmm

Just paranoid android to me. Not good.

ripsishere Wed 17-Apr-13 06:18:55

dreadful.

catballou Wed 17-Apr-13 06:28:22

an unnecessary burden to place on a child...though marginally better than Mervin

BinarySolo Wed 17-Apr-13 07:03:13

Yep paranoid android for me too. Mervin on the other hand was the name my parents called my brother when he wAs naughty!

PoppyAmex Wed 17-Apr-13 07:05:11

Marvin the Martian. Sorry.

HKat Wed 17-Apr-13 08:57:32

Lol, Coppertop :-)

Sunnysummer Wed 17-Apr-13 10:32:49

Marvin the Martian, or Starvin' Marvin, depending on your generation...

Personally, I wouldn't - though you could hold out hope that the millennials will have different associations!
