I prefer [name_m]Kurt[/name_m]. I like the strong Germanic feel and sense of class. [name_m]Kirk[/name_m] is nice, but I don’t feel like it ages well.

I prefer [name_m]Kurt[/name_m] myself. I don’t like the -IRK sound or the two K’s in [name_m]Kirk[/name_m].

I have strong (pop culture) associations to both names that aren’t necessarily bad, but then not exactly great either. I immediately thought to these upon seeing the names in the thread title. [name_m]Kirk[/name_m] is entirely ‘[name_m]Gilmore[/name_m] Girls’ for me, and I cannot seem to get past that association. With [name_m]Kurt[/name_m] I think to both ‘Sound of [name_f]Music[/name_f]’ & ‘Glee’ – this association, while there, isn’t as strong due to knowing other [name_m]Kurt[/name_m]'s in the real world, so it’s not completely relatable to a sole person/character like [name_m]Kirk[/name_m] is for me.
