According to the book Baby Name Wizard, we may be raising cowboys.
We know, very strange—and scary, if you’ve ever been to Dallas. (Please don’t think of Jake on ABC’s The Bachelor.)
The book says Carson “has it all: It’s a surname, a Celtic name, and a cowboy name . . .”
What?! A cowboy name? Really?
Celtic, yes, but not cowboy. Come on. (Apparently, it’s a reference to frontiersman Kit Carson.)
And the book says that Cole is “a politician’s dream—a name that pleases every constituency.” How so? “It has the bluntness of a cowboy name, the briskness of a preppy name, and the sophistication of a Cole Porter tune. A showstopper.”
Showstopper—good, maybe. But then there’s another reference to cowboys. Cowboys! Very strange.
Please don’t hold it against the guys. Or us. It was not intentional.
Whatever the case, here’s more pics . . .
