We all know that Fry's full name is
Philip J. Fry(and if you dont you should) but what does the J stand for? Here's your chance to vote for what you think his middle name is/should be.

you know how if you hear a name a lot you just get used to the sound of it with that person? for example, would "Sarah" be a good name for amy? no, because we're all used to the name amy. which is why i voted for "Philip Jay Fry." no having to get used to a new name

I voted for other.  Since Fry's dad was so patriotic, I thought he would give him the same middle name of an American hero.  Joseph, the middle name of General John J. Pershing.

His middle name is Jay. In hounour of Rocky and Bullwinkle creator Jay Ward. Just like Homer. Matt G. has said this at least once in interviews.

Jerrick, which is from the name Jerrico, meaning Moon city. That or Jared, meaning down to earth.

Jay.

Although Joachim have a certain ring to it. We all know have ambitious and misunderstood Germans are, well Fry is misunderstood too.

I'm not sure if that's entirely correct.  I think the Jay is partially in homage to Ward but more in homage to Rocky J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle J. Moose.  Hence the middle initials we never hear the exact names to in The Simpsons (save for Homer's after season ten), and similarly both Fry's and the Professor's never spoken middle names.

So, the answer is that they probably never picked a middle name officially.

And let's admit it, "J" is a cool-sounding middle initial.  Try it with your own name.

My mother did 14 years ago with this cool kid she had. (It was me)    :D

I would think James or Jay.

I think that Phillip James Fry has a nice ring to it, although it's most likely going to just remain "J" forever now. As DotheBartman said - they probably never picked a middle name officially.

Personally, I would really hate it if they actually made it "Jay." Even if it IS a tribute to Jay Ward, I still wouldn't like it, as it would basically be re-using the whole "keep the fans in suspense for ages over what J stands for, then reveal that it's Jay" joke that Groening did in The Simpsons.

If it really is a tribute to Jay Ward, then the J may not stand for anything.  Jay Ward was born J Troplong Ward.  Note that the J in his name is not short for anything.  It's like the S in Harry S Truman.

would "Sarah" be a good name for amy? no, because we're all used to the name amy.

Any other name wouldn't be as good for me because, for some unexplainable reason...

The name Amy =  :love:  :love:  :love:

...stupid brain...

On topic I think it's probably Jay, but James does go well.

I was thinking about what Nix said earlier, but have to say Douglas J Hilliard doesn't quite work. However, Dougie Jay Hilliard on the otherhand...!
Oh, right...

Probably: Philip Jay Fry
What sounds best: Philip James Fry
Other possibility: Philip Joseph Fry
And another: Philip Jay-Jay Fry.
Aha!
But the one I'll go for: Philip Johannes Fry
To be different and very strange. Yipee.

Groening's use of J as a middle initial is a tribute to Rocky and Bullwinkle, whose middle initial came from creator Jay Ward.  So it's a tribute to both.

I just turned 20 years old this week. But since my parents have no clue who Rocky and Bullwinkle are, they cant be accused of copying  ;)
