  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "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."

  • "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: Report as inappropriate
