  • "We named our son (born October 2014) Wyatt James. James is my husbands middle name. Everyone comments on what a good strong name it is and our son fits it perfectly. He is a very strong boy at only 3 months old. We had decided on his name in the beginning of 2012 and I am very happy with it. My grandparents all love his name and he is the only Wyatt at his daycare, not just in the infant room but in the whole daycare and I really like that. He is very unique as is his name."

We live in a large country town in Australia - the name isnt as popular here as in US; we know of one other Wyatt (younger) in our town. Our 2nd son is Ethan (born 2006) so the names really go together..both strong country names." Jan. 19, 2013: Report as inappropriate

I like the name because it is a little different, but not so different that people would wonder if I did drugs growing up. According to my research the name is French for Little Warior. It is a strong name and it fits my son's personality." May. 28, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My surname is Wyatt by birth. Yes, it rocks. From the middle-aged crowd I get a lot of,"Oh, like Wyatt Earp!" yes, yes, whatever floats your boat. In fact, that's my friend's dad's unimaginative nickname for me when I'm not around. Oh yeah, I'm a girl and I WAS born in Texas... but I moved to VA when I was four. Any jokes were from adults and always related to cowboys, of course. Not being particularly fond of "cowboys" it was always slightly annoying, but nothing more. People a bit younger sometimes act as if they've never heard the name before or need me to spell it. I've also had SEVERAL apparently simple teachers call out my name as "Watt." I mean, how dumb do you have to be? Does "Wyatt" look like "Watt?" Anyway, I've found many meanings to my name such as: "strength","warrior","little warrior","small fighter","war brave","brave, strong, hardy, war","water","wood","guide" and my personal favorite, "Son of the forest guide." I like the last one because I love forests... to a strange pagan-like degree and I have a spooky sense of direction. I never get lost. I have a photographic memory AND an internal compass. Seriously. My dad is the same way with nature and, I think direction. So in a sense I am the "son of the forest guide." hahaha, only, I'm the daughter. My brother, strangely enough, couldn't find his way out of a wet paper bag..." Sep. 22, 2007: Report as inappropriate
