Comments and insights on the name Bertha:

Reminds me of an old, fat, hideous lady. No offense if your name is Bertha though

Personal experiences with the name Bertha:

My grandmother's name was Bertha (born in the 1800's when the name was popular) and she was tall and very thin. Not big and fat as people expect people with that name to be.

My dad had a cousin who lived to be 90. She invited me to her house to meet her 2 sisters-in-law, Bertha and May. One of them was heavy, the other thin, and when I met them, I expected the heavy one to be Bertha, but no, Bertha was the thin one! Later I talked about it to my cousin, who was in her 80's then, and she said when she was young there was nothing wrong with the name Bertha, the name got ruined during World War II when they started calling army tanks "Big Berthas". So many names get ruined over the years by some product, some celebrity (i.e. Britney Spears), and then they are never used again.
