"I named my son Dakoda and we call him Koda for short. Everyone seems to like the name. The only problem I have with it is that right after I had him the nurse told me it was a girl's name. And whenever I talk to new people they ask what my kid's names are and then they think Dakoda is a 'she' so I have to correct them. I didn't even know any girls named Dakoda until Dakota Fanning became popular. But I still really like the name for my son and love the meaning of the name as well." Aug. 5, 2009:
