My name is Cameron. I love having that Isn't popular. i've always been'the only 'Cameron' in my class and at work. Growing up, I often was called 'Carmen,' which still occurs from time to time. i've just learned to answer to either. But, I prefer 'Cameron' over Cam or Cammy. The latter really raises the hair on'the back of my neck.

My names Cameron, and im a girl. i would absolutely hate to call any Cameron "Ron" as a teenager. Cam is the nickname for guys, even'though close friends call me Cam, along with Cammy. Cameron, is more unisex, i've met very few Camerons only 2, one called Cameron and the other Kamryn'that are also girls. A few more boys, but It's n't a common name. People always spell my name Camron. Totally wrong, probably because the E's silent. Along with Carmen, when'they can't remember my name. But Cameron, Isn't suited for any girl. Cameron as a girl name is very "spunky", and it Isn't like Ashley or Jamie. Its more boyish. But is still an awesome girls name. Oh ya, and sometimes i do get heat from idiots who think Camerons a boys name, but usually people love the name. Also, guys trying to annoy me call me Cameron Diaz, n't to shabby ;)

We named our beautiful 18 month old son, Xander. His name was chosen before he was even conceived. We pronounce the "X", a lot of people will pronounce it as a Z. It is perfect for him. I love it, so strong and bold. Just like my baby boy ;)

We're expecting a baby this summer and will name him Henry and call him Hank. Both are family names and we were thrilled when we came up with it! It's strong and simple and yet also unusual. We can't wait to meet our little Hank.

Ever'since i was in primary school i was prowd of my name, even'though it meant crooked nose! In year 11 at college i was playing soccer and my nose was broken in a harsh tackle! Ever'since my name has been "crooked" i guess the name does describe me afterall!!

11/12/2021 11:55:48 PM

From a historical perspective, a name meaning of crooked nose likely referred to surviving battle so it was an affI'mation of valor- n't an insult.

We are naming our son Dakota. Some of my husbands family members (mom, sister) make fun of it. Kids these days make fun for a lot of reasons, those kids need to be taught respect. For the people in his family that don't like it & contiue to say things about it won't seem him.

10/8/2021 6:28:12 PM

My husband and I named our 2 year old son Cameron so I obviously love the name. I think It's a very nice sounding name and I have Scottish roots so that's why we chose it. Plus It's n't overly popular and Isn't too out there either. I think it is more of a boy's name (and it was traditionally as well) but I don't really care if some people use it for a girl.

10/1/2021 7:07:48 AM

My name is Cameron after my great grandfather. Wow, I also have a crooked nose... I'm n't joking. I have had a lot of accidents with dirt-bikes and stuff, and a lot of fights. But I don't know for sure how long my nose has been crooked or why. I have only met a couple other Cameron's. Michigan, USA.

My wife and I will have a boy to be born in 4 weeks from now. In'the very beginning of the pregnancy we decided the name to be Cameron. We have great memories to Cameron Highlands in Malaysia hence we choose that name. We think it is a beautiful name. I have a big nose and n't a crooked one. My wife's nose is rather'small, being Asian. So the original meaning doesn't really bother us. The'second name is going to be Cornelius. We love the combin'tion and we trust our son will love it too. I only hope the combin'tion will n't be cut down'to CC or CamCo or something else. Anyway, we put a lot of thoughts into it and we pray that we have made the right choice.

8/5/2021 7:06:00 PM

I love the name Cameron- my 3 year old has that name and there does n't seem to be a lot of boys named Cameron around. What bothe's me is when parents choose this name for girls...
