Very excited going to have my first son, (we have one daugher age 6) in less than a month. What do you guys think about the name? :

Drake Stewart Campbell

dunno where I came up with Drake but I had it picked for my son for probally over 15 years now whenever I had him. I think it has a good ring to it.

Drake is the name of Joey's soap opera character on the show Friends.  

Drake Ramores, I think.

Not that it's a big deal, its just the first thing I thought of..

Just kidding

I can almost hear his fellow second graders quacking at him now. [:D]

Think he'll end up with the nickname "Duck"?

I'm partial to the name:


It's simple, it means "king".

No offense meant, but I think I found a new name for the sissyist mens name post I started.[lol]You could look there for names to avoid.

Link Posted: 5/9/2003 6:14:57 AM EDT
Dunno, kids are mean they will make fun of ANY name. If they can't find anything wrong with your name they will invent one for you.

DRAKE the Old Norse personal name Draki or the Old English personal name Draca both meaning "dragon".

Drake?  You might as well name him "Spike-the-volleyball-at-my-head-and-steal-my-lunch-money".  

It's probably not a bad name, but we had a kid that lived across the street from us for a while named Drake, and he was a real weenie.  So the name has a bad connotation for me.

Whatever you name him, wihtin a few weeks, he'll become that name for you and you couldn't imagine him as anyone else.  It's strange...

Best of luck!

Harley or Anvil something with an edge to it, you want him to grow up to be a man not a cutesy homo fag democrat.

All I'm hearing is the Drake's Cakes Cambell Soup Kid.

How about naming him Maggot Jr until he grows into a new name like McFly or something? [:D]

How about a Really Scottish name:

OT: Sorry to divert the question. Wow, you went home without giving your child a name? Here in the PRK, you must give your child a name and fill out a birth cert. before you leave the hospital.

Drake Works,

but how about Dirk
Link Posted: 5/9/2003 7:24:54 AM EDT
I like the name (although I prefer the other spelling of Stewart) - it sounds like a doctor's name [:)].  I actually wanted Drake to be my son's middle name because I had met his father in a little place called Drakes Branch.  His father didn't agree on the name though.

If your child is the type to be teased, it doesn't really matter about the name.  Kids will find something to tease him about.

[Homer Simpson]Well then how about Bart? I can't think of anything the other kids could think of to tease him about with that name.[/Homer Simpson]

How about Tuff, Like Tuff Heiderman the bull riding champ. I think to some extent the meaning of your name has a real effect on your personality. It becomes how you see yourself.

My sons name is Asher Isaac Nathaniel Zuriel Hathaway, & I picked those names by their meanings,to add to who he is,& help him understand what he is about.

Asher = Happy, blessed,to be envied.
Isaac = Laughter
Nathaniel = Gift of the Lord
Zuriel = The Lord is my rock,& sure foundation.

Howz about: Bruce Boomstick Campbell?
Link Posted: 5/9/2003 8:31:38 AM EDT
Stewart is the proper Scottish spelling, Stuart is the French spelling (Yuck).  The name is an occupational name, the Stewarts took the name as a surname from their title, they were the Stewards of Scotland following the failure of the Bruce male line.

The Campbells have a long and at points, infamous history of on again, off again collusion with the English invaders (but what clan in Scotland did not constantly trade allegiance to improve their power and status?)  My own clan, the MacDonalds, suffered grievous treachery at the hands of the Campbells, but that was ages past, and grudges of that sort are evil to hold onto. The MacDonald's the Bruce's, the Stewarts, all trades allegiance many, many times in their histories.  Robert the Bruce killed the head of the Comyns on the altar steps of a church.  Scotlands history is colorful, but often less than noble.

Drake is not a Scottish name.  It is an english corruption of a Roman Word "Draco" "Dragon".

My son is named Duncan (Scots gaelic: brown warrior). The name doesn't actually fit, because his hair is red, but my wife liked it. Obviously kids will nail him with Duncan Donuts or some such crap, but since his sister already made that connection, he should be used to it by the time he hits school.

Virtually all names can be twisted into something nasty, so do what you will.

By the way, "Drake" is the name of one of the Colonial Marines in "Aliens."

How about Joshua Caleb Campbell?  That's what I had picked out in case my last one was a boy (Called her Jessica instead!).  They were two righteous dudes who kept their eyes on the goal and were good in a fight.

It beats Dweezil.

I think you should name kids after a Saint (if you are Christian), otherwise make sure it is a name which reflects your culture.  If you are Scottish there are web sites with Celtic names.  My wife and I didn't decide on a name until the evening before we went to the hospital, and we didn't decide if he should be circumsized until after he was born.  Pretty indecisive...

Something my grandmother told to do when picking out a baby name was to stand out on the back porch and yell the name 10 times and then see how you like it.

i think my son got the coolest name of all of us!

dont get me started on my last name though, i was a pretty decent age before i could spell that long SOB

could be worse though, my buddys name is WD, for good reason, his real name is wilbur delmas, make sure your kid can use his first two initials and they sound good as a backdrop!!!!
