It's my son's name. I spell it with one "t" because he's named after'st. Thomas Becket. People tend to spell it with two "t's" but it't not a big deal.

My maiden name is Beckett, and I wanted to honor my father with our first child, so if It's a boy the first name will be Beckett, and if It's a girl, the middle name will be Beckett (cause it just doesn't sound as good for a girl's name!). I'm just glad It's becoming more popular as a first name'so it won't be so wierd.

My son's name is Beckett and was born in 2015. We were looking for an unusual name from literature and we both like the works of playwright Samuel Beckett. I loved that it was unique and not a lot of boys have the name. Looks like it is gaining in popularity. I also read Freakonomics so time will tell if it is all the rage in 2015. I really hope It's not the next Tyler and Taylor, but if it is, I'll tell my Beckett he was a trendsetter.

We are having a SON and naming him Reagan Philip. My husband came up with Reagan, and has had some reservations since, but we think It's a great unisex name.

10/22/2023 02:52:08

Love it for a boy, highly dislike to for a girl...It's not a girls name!

09/05/2023 12:54:56

Our son was born in July and we named him Beckett.... lots of good response! He is the only one we know.

08/24/2023 09:57:56

Our son's name is Becket with one "t"...keeps it a little more unique! And our last name is Thomas so it looks nice with the two T's next to each other. Becket Thomas. We love it!

I'm nearly 6 months pregnant and my husband and I have loved this name from the very beginning of my pregnancy. I'm not sure I like the idea of it becoming so popular in 2015... especially since some boys names tend to cross over to girls. Guess we'll have to take the risk.

My son Beckett Joseph was born in 2016. I created it as a masculine version of my mother-in-law's name (Becky) and Joseph was the middle name of my dad and grandpa. I also verified that I could not find it in any baby books as i'very much did not want a popular name. That'same year, Natalie Maines (Dixie Chicks) named her'son Beckett and the next year Conan O❤️Brien did and Freakonomics predicted its rise in popularity. And I thought ❤️Uh-Oh! Now It's going to soar in prevalence.❤️ We live in a small town (12,000) and since his birth I know of three more Beckett's in just our town! One woman, a stranger, even'told me that'she named her'son Beckett after'she heard me calling to mine and liked the name! I wanted to yell ❤️Stop Thief!❤️ Too bad you can't copy write baby names❤️lol! Before 2018 the name Beckett didn't even appear in the top 1000 names of the year according to the'social Security Administration. In 2018 it was ranked 750th most popular name in the country and by 2018 it was up to 314th most popular name! I REALLY hope it never becomes annoyingly popular, but at least if it does he❤️ll be one of the oldest Becketts that anyone knows.

Name one of my twin boys Beckett on May 17, 2020. I heard it and really like it. Beckett was the twin in NICU and we had not named the boys yet. They said he really needs a name'so I chose he as the twin to be named Beckett.

04/23/2023 12:29:48

Its my sons name and he is as cool as his name! He was born September of 2018. Have never heard of any othe's.

04/06/2023 03:28:06

My 1 year old is named Beckett and I love It'still! He gets Becks for short and I have never had anyone say it was weird, I generally get comments about how lovely it is :) He has 2 brothe's Cooper and Parker.

I named my son Beckett in 2016. I found it in a celebrity baby names book...Melissa Etheridge had a son named Beckett. Now it is on the popularity chart at #678 due to many other celebrities choosing the name. I haven't met anyone else who has used the name, yet. The response is almost always favorable with many people saying that It's a cool name and wondering how I came up with it. The one downside would be that most everyone asks me to repeat his name because they think I say "Becker".

04/02/2023 01:00:56

Our little boy born December of 08 is Beckett as well. After'spending hours searching online and through name books it was the only boys name I liked. I didn't know that it was predicted to be the most popular name in 2015, but that's okay. It'suits him well.

03/14/2023 02:39:48

We named our son Benn't Owen. He likes having It'spelled differently--though some people think It's pronounced "Benay." We call him Ben. He is often Benn't at school because there are lots of Benjamins. I was surprised to see how popular Benn't(t) had become among boys' names.

02/26/2023 12:14:56

My son Beckett was born in 2012. he's the only one we know! Often called Becks and sometimes Bucket by his school mates ......could be worse! We love the name!

This much less common variant of the nowadays grannyish Edna was influenced by the Hebrew word "ednah", which means "rejuven'tion".

01/31/2023 03:12:44

Totally cool name. People love it when'they find out it is my daughter's name.

01/09/2023 14:15:42

My wife and I are going to have a baby boy in december and we're going to name our son Beckett because It'sounds really unique and strong and we ( other than the internet ) have never met anyone with the name.

11/07/2022 14:12:12

We found out early on that we were having a boy so we didn't spend a lot of time on girl names. We have nweaorrd it down to the two names that we kept bringing up again and again. I had one boy name that I really liked before I got pregnant but when it became "real" and we were actually having a boy, this name just didn't feel right and we aren't using it.

10/21/2022 02:49:26

Our 2nd son, born July 2020, is named Beckett London. We almost used it for our 1st son in 2017, but went with Soren for him. We like English-Danish, since that is our ancestry. And Beckett really is a cool name for a boy. I do suspect it will get more popular soon, but that many of us are way ahead of that curve.

10/17/2022 06:14:56

We named our son Beckett, born Nov 2019. We found it in our baby name book from 2019 (from our daughter) and it just stuck. I think it is still gaining in popularity, and we knew about Freakonomics too--and took the risk anyway. I heard of 3 other Becketts right after he was born - sons of friends, not direct friends. We also had another Beckett in his daycare class--that was unexpected! I will probably always call him his full name, as his mom--but other family members do call him Beck too.

06/27/2022 22:55:30

Were naming our baby boy Uriah due in march 2018. his big brother's name is Elijah which means Jehova is God, and according to other Bible searches I found Uriah also means "Flame of Jehova, or Light of God." I like the name a lot. my husband picked it. :) and I agree its unique and takes a bit before u may like the'sound of it, but I love it now. :)

05/26/2022 18:39:54

My son is also a Beckett, born in 2017. Love it that people think of St. Thomas Becket and Beckham the'soccer player--all great role models! Very positive and the name fits him well. Only problem is sometimes people think I am calling him Becca (clearly get funny looks since he is in no way girly.)

03/26/2022 20:29:42

I named my son Beckett this year. I was on a baby name fider'site, and entered my daughters' names. The first suggestion for a name that went with theirs was our last name. A few names down was Beckett. It's just who he is. i've had both positive and negative feedback on his name, but the positive outweighs the negative.

02/07/2022 23:02:42

My son is 11 months old and named Beckett :) I fell inlove with the name the moment I heard it :)

01/20/2022 16:45:36

Grandson named Beckett in November 2020. My daughters and I all made boys name lists and Beckett was on all 3. Paired it with Lee as both parents have that as middle name. Had heard of course of the playwright Samuel Beckett and also Melissa Etheridge's son. Have also heard Conan O'Briens son.

12/31/2021 21:52:30

We are namein our little girl this. She is due on Halloween 2020. We love it but we still havent decided on a middle name. We like unique names. So far we are considering Veda January, Veda Star(which I despise), Veda Faith, Veda Louise, Veda Elise. We will pronounce it Vay-da I LOVE IT!

11/28/2021 06:50:42

My son's name is Beckett Paul. We saw the name in a magazine when I was pregnant and it was the first boy's name that my husband and I both liked. It means "content" or "satisfied" in some languages. Most people have NEVER heard of it...or think we named him after Josh Beckett, the baseball player, or the Beckett baseball card book (my hubbie was a baseball player, so we don't mind the association.) but, people often'think I say the'soccer player...but I LOVE his name!

07/26/2021 01:59:06

We named our son Beckett in June of this year. We needed a "B" name to go with the middle name Thomas. I liked the association with Samuel Beckett and Thomas Becket and it is unusual without sounding weird. We had never met another Beckett but a few weeks ago a four year old Beckett joined my daughter's Karate class.
