    Hi there.

    This is totally serious.

    I am on a quest to see if I can revive the popularity of the once mega popular name Gary and I am chronicling these efforts for a book.

    According to official stats, the name is dying out and could be in danger of extinction.

    A modern trend I have noticed is young parents naming children after favourite characters in pop fiction.

    I was wondering if anyone here would accept the challenge to name the protagonist of their story or script Gary? Ideally, he would be a heroic, decent character!

    It would be an interesting experiment to see if having more 'cool' Garys in pop culture could lead to a resurgence in popularity for the name.

    What do you think? Are you brave enough?

    Interesting. I wasn’t aware that this name was dying out. You learn something new every day.

    I like the idea. It works rather well as a creative writing prompt. We’ve had writing prompts of all sorts but nothing at all specific to a name.

    Let’s keep this endangered name under conservation.

    Challenge proposed!

    Who will accept??
