"My name is Tatum and at points i think it is weird and don't like it, but mostly everyday i love it and think it is unique. My parents call me tater tot and i get complements because of my name. I like it and i don't." Mar. 2, 2014:
"We named our daughter Tatum Nicole, she was born 8-6-10. My husband asked me if I liked the name Tatum, and I asked him, "Like the Bronco, Tatum Bell?" He was surprised I knew the player and said, "yeah". A few nights later I dreamt that I was holding my little girl and calling her Tatum, it was decided, that would be her name! We get compliments all the time and hear of other people recently naming thier girls Tatum, however, we have yet to meet another in person. We call her Baby T, Tater Tot, Tate, T, and T Bear. LOVE this name!" Dec. 16, 2010:
"my name is tatum, with a "u". i've never heard of spelling it with an "e" though. my full name is Tatum Makenzie and ive noticed that over the years ive met a couple of Tatums around where i live but so far there is just me that all of my friends have met. people call me all sorts of nicknames like tator tot, tater bug, tate, mutat (spelled backwards), t, tater, tad pole, todum pole, and a couple more but i just cant think of right now. but tate, t, and tator tot are definately the most popular! i love my name :)" Dec. 5, 2010:
"2000 we named our daughter Tatem Mckenzie Ann. She is full of life, knows what and when she wants something. Very strong and sure of herself. We call her Tate, tater toy or tater bug." Apr. 17, 2010:
"We wanted an unusual name and chose Tatum...our 10 year old Tatum (nicknames T-bug, Tatiebug, Tatertot, Tatie) is a happy, bright, kind child. Oh, and full of joy, too! (=" Aug. 17, 2009:
"I named my daughter Tatum in 1996. I have also not met any other female Tatums. I am often asked if I named her after Tatum O'Neill -- and I did not. I have noticed a few male Tatums who are also actors, but again, that was really not my intent. I am a Catherine who is called "Katy" -- so I was searching for a strong female name that could not be shortened. Ha!!! She, too, is called Tater Tot, Ms. T. (like Mr. T.) and my favorite, Darth Tater. I absolutely love her name, love saying it, and better yet, at 13, she loves hearing it. I could not imagine her being anything other than a Tatum."

"Named our daughter "Tatum Kristine" in 2006. Have heard from others that the name is becoming popular, however, I have never met another Tatum yet. As for nicknames she is often called Tater-tot and TT. We love her name and her nicknames." Feb. 8, 2009:

"My daughters name is Tatum Elizabeth. When she was born (13 years ago) the name was quite unpopular. No one had ever heard of such a name before! We got compliments on it, often stating that it was very "unique" and "beautiful" name, but it did disturb me (not too much:) ) when somone thought we named her after someone, such as Tatum O'neil. It didn't bother me so much that someone related her to the actress, but as to the originality of the name. I wanted something unheard of, but still cute. Since then the popularity of the name has exceeded, which is, beyond, fine with me because I still will love the name and my daughter." Dec. 5, 2006:

"My name is Tatum Elisabeth and I pronounce it TAY-tum.
I personally really like my name, I've only ever met one other girl named Tatum, but I've also met a few boys named Tatum. My name means "cheerful" or "bringer of joy". No one has ever pronounced it wrong! My nicknames are T, tater tot, potato, tatie, Tay tay, and tay! Many people always compliment me on it and I like it because it isn't very common so it makes me feel special! :)" Jan. 19, 2015:
