β†’ Slayer, Striker, Shooter and the Rise of the Extreme Baby Boy Name ∞

In a recent Namerology article on the topic, she lists several of the burlier, more aggressive names that have been picking up steam: Angler, Camper, Tracker, Trapper, Catcher, Driver, Fielder, Racer, Sailor, Striker, Wheeler β€” deep breath β€” Breaker, Roper, Trotter, Wrangler β€” still going β€” Lancer, Shooter, Slayer, Soldier, Tracer, Trooper β€” wait, β€œSlayer”? β€” Blazer, Brewer, Charger, Dodger, Laker, Pacer, Packer, Raider, Ranger, Steeler, Warrior β€” kill me β€” Dreamer, Jester and β€” wait for it β€” Rocker.

At first this article gave me a headache, but then I got over and learned to love extreme baby boy names.

So for the record, when I’m picking my baseball team I got dibs on Slugger, Fielder, Racer, and Ump. Sorry, but you get stuck with Dreamer, Jester, Slacker, and Sailor.

So sold on these new baby names am I that I decided to come up with my own list of super jacked-up hot rod names. Feel free to steal any of these that you like.

P.S. I couldn’t help but notice the lack of popular baby names like Coder, Manager, or Commuter. What, no love for the IT life?
