"I named my son Baron in 1976. We did so in memory of my boss and best friend who met his untimely death 5 years before." Mar. 29, 2021:
"The origin of 'Earl' as a first name goes back many centuries--originally referring to servants of the noblemen--unlike other titles. Other titles are rarely, if ever, used as first names--other than for pets.
The very common use of 'King', 'Lady', 'Duke' 'Duchess','Princess'...and 'Baron', etc.,for pets, especially dogs, has likely kept those desperate for something unique to name their newborn from 'going there'.
For those who have lived with pets with these names, that association is likely something they wouldn't want to saddle (sorry) their child with--separate from the former respect for tradition which had prohibited this for centuries. For those unaware of history or the naming of pets, this likely seems a gold mine of uncommon names.
Personally, if someone told me they'd like me to meet their 'son', Baron, I'd expect a St. Bernard puppy to bound into the room." Dec. 5, 2019:
"Baron is such a weird name, who would name there kid that?" Aug. 13, 2011:
"One may well name a daughter Baroness if ever they used Baron for their sons. A century ago, Earl was the popular male name in the United States only. Yet as titles in Britain, 'Baron' and 'Baroness', along with 'Earl' and 'Countess', indicate people having succeeded to the barony or earldom following the death of their father, mother, uncle, or whomever."
