My father grew up in the 1950s. When he was young, his family had three dogs: King, Jett and Baron.
A few weeks ago, the SSA announced the top baby names of 2009. It also published a nifty change in popularity page.
What two names were prominently featured on that page? King and Jett. They’d increased in popularity significantly from 2008 to 2009. (Baron didn’t make the list, but it did crack the top 1,000 for the first time in 2008.)
We already know that human names are being given to dogs. But the trendiness of King and Jett makes me wonder: are all those old dog names destined to be reincarnated as baby names?
Snowflake and Spot may not make the jump, but Ace, Bandit, Petal, Princess and Spike have been popping up on birth certificates lately. And I could see how other old-school dog names like Duchess, Shadow and Lucky might appeal to certain parents.
What do you think about dog names for babies — Fun? Crazy? Inevitable?
A reader named Heath is expecting his third child, a boy, and would like some name suggestions. Here’s what he says:
I’m Heath, wife is Aspen, daughter is Channing and son is Deacon so we’re looking for a name that most kids won’t have but also want something that isn’t feminine, will get him picked on or doesn’t sound like we are trying too hard.
Here are some of the names they’ve been considering:
My favorite is Justice but that has no chance with my wife. She likes Ridge but I quickly vetoed that. Her favorite is Easton but I was looking for something more. Some others that we have thought about is Beckett, Kingston or Tate but again I’m not overly thrilled.
Many of the names above come from surnames, so that’s what I focused on as I brainstormed:
Which of the above do you like best with Channing and Deacon? What other names would you suggest to Heath?
