It seems that with climber guys, there are some names that I hear way more than others...seems like every other climber guy I've encountered is either named Jason, Josh, Tim or Jay.

Totally random thought. Anyone else notice this trend? I was just thinking about that the other day at he crag, how many times I hear those 4 names when it comes to guys on the rock. Just like how 80 percent of all climber guys are either engineers, computer techs or mechanics :wink: .

I think that's the dude in the Matrix. By far, Scott seems to be the most popular Texas climber name.

I climb with 3 different Daves.
But don't you remember elementary school - when every class had at least 2 Jennifers and a Sarah? Definitely just a sign of the demographics of the time.
Maybe you just notice it more with your climber buddys because ratio of men to women is different...

My floor of the dorm freshman year of college had five Lauras and three Andrews.

And I have climbed with a whole hell of a lot of Adams. And they all like taking pictures.

i can't tell you how many times we've been at the crag or around the campfire, i'll yell out "hey, shorty!" and multiple men under 5'8" turn around to answer me. :lol:

men?........ answering to "shorty"....?

hmmmm


I've always heard it differently.

As in:

"Yo, Yo, Shorty... Yo man let you go out dressed like dat?"

maybe it's a regional thing.

gblauer - i am much too, uhh, 'unique' to have my name on that trendy name list. :P

i'm with pirate on the name thing - most of the climbers are called "dude" - as far as legal names go, brian seems to be the most popular name of climber friends while jason is the hands-down winner of most common guy name. unfortunately for me, none of the jason's that i know are climbers - though they all have nice butts - then again they all play soccer, and soccer players seem to always have the nicest butts of them all. wait, off topic - sorry. :oops:

/whispers .. hmm, i feel a research project coming on. tee hee.

Off the top of my head, my names of guys that I've climbed w/ are...

Jay
Bernardo
Jason
Mike
Mike
Mike
Kevin
Greg
Bob
Alex
Allen
Brian
David
Lawrence
Justin

Not very many of them go by "dhude", but I think that it is probably the most common name.

I the climbing community in Nova Scotia (which is a small one) I can think of about half a dozen Seans (guys who do a lot around here too, gym owners, guide book writers, etc). Next up is Chris, then for girls Becky is coming up in the ranks, but to avoid that I'll just keep going by Rebecca.

Moral of the story, if your in Nova Scotia climbing you have a really good chance of getting the guy's name right if you call him Sean.

My first time out at the Gunks and I met in one afternoon:

3 Jeremy
4 Rob/Bob
and half of everyone there was dude. I even heard a father and son team call each other dude. "Yo, dad, dude..." It just wouldn't work with my pop.

I know like 5 Jeremys.. not all of them climb though.
There's Jason (nickname's Jay), 2 Brendans, Brian, Eric (*shudders*, bad junior high memory... moving on..)

Although.. I know several people with very unusual names.. and they're all climbers. :wink:

I guess my name could go into the unusual category too....

Well... if you were to come to Monterrey you wouldn't have problems in identifying the most common guy names, since they all refer to themselves as "guey". There are very little guys who use there names, cause if they decided not to use "guey" they would probably use some other wird nick...

Heck... I think that I barely now my fellow climbers REAL names!!

Brian
Mike
Eric

Jay

I never ever heard my name anywhere in all my time growing up till I came to my current job. Turns out that my co-worker is named Jason and Jay is his nickname.

Good to hear there are other folk out there with a weird name like mine! :wink:

I hear a lot of people yelling the name Rock at the climbing areas I frequent...that name must be reeeeeeeally popular. :lol:

[quote="gblauer"]could it be that those names are the popular names for the RC.com demographic? (in other words, simply a reflection of what our society selected for names 20 years ago?)
Here is a list of the most popular names in the 1980s:
1 Michael 33316 Jessica 23744
2 Christopher 27697 Jennifer 22274
3 Matthew 22914 Amanda 18260
4 Joshua 19983 Ashley 17489
5 David 19556 Sarah 13676

Up here (West Coast Canada) it seems that every climber guy is Mike, Chris, Matt or Dave. Go figure - 4 out of the top 5. Makes it easy if you have a poor memory - pretty well 1 chance in 4 you'll call a guy by the right name.

Oh gross, that's the roll sheet of every class of mine since kindergarten. But, my childhood best friend tells me that all the Heathers and Lindsays are now about 2 kids deep (I am 23, BTW) and all the Ryans and Jasons are in rehab, the military, dead, or some combination thereof.... hey. I grew up in central Cali. :P

But Chris is by far the most common climber name I can think of. I have decided that the Archtypical "Brah" climber boy is named Chris Christensen.

Jay

I never ever heard my name anywhere in all my time growing up till I came to my current job. Turns out that my co-worker is named Jason and Jay is his nickname.

Good to hear there are other folk out there with a weird name like mine! :wink:

I hear a lot of people yelling the name Rock at the climbing areas I frequent...that name must be reeeeeeeally popular. :lol:

-Gate
That's funny, I only knew one Jay till I started climbing met a few Jays, including THE Jay (jt512, natch). Even with all the Jasons of my generation, I knew very few Jays. Of course, jt512 isn't from my generation :P

My name is Sean, and as far as I know theres only one other person in my high school (about 1500 people total) named Sean, I've never even met another climber named Sean. I did meet a mountain biker named Ezra and another named Pilgrim once. In fact they were brothers... good mountain bikers though. :lol:

I think that a good runner up for a common guy climber's name is Jonathan, or Jon. Maybe it's just freak coincidence, but in the crew that I climbed with in Texas (there were 10 of us), five of us were Jonathans.

I know quite a few Matts and Adams, but that's about it. I don't know anyone called Jay...
