Everybody loved Raymond in the 20th century; in the 21st century, not as much. Still, it hasn’t fallen off the baby-name charts, as parents are continuing to choose old-fashioned names for their babies. Raymond fits right in with bros like Henry, George and Leo. Lots of famous Raymonds have whittled their name down to the slick one-syllable Ray, like actors Liotta and Romano.
