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: .

There's a reason I don't go by the nickname "Kris." FAAAAR too many Chris' in the world. I have six in my cell phone.

I will never name my kid Chris.

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.

"Hey dude..."

yeah, i call my four year old son cole "shorty" sometimes.

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.

Number one's gotta be Rock. People are always calling him. Never seems to answer, though.

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....
