My 2 year-old son's name is Tate, and we still think it is the coolest boy's name around. We are having another one now, and we are having problems coming up with a name that we think is as cool as Tate for this one.

My son was born in January 2020 and we named him Tate (it was one of the few male names we could agree on and he looked like Tate fit him when he arrived). He is Tate Matthew and we have had many compliments on how different the name is without being trendy or strange.

My second son is named Tate - he is 16. We wanted a name that'sounded nice and was not too common. It means "charming" and "cheerful" which is just how he turned out! Our first son is named Zach - he is 18. We thought we were being original with him as well but that ended up being a very popular name in the 90's! Tate's middle name is Quentin after my grandfather - we thought we would call him TQ... but we never did... We did sometimes call him "Tater," I admit, but he didn't mind too much... "Tate" is a great guy's name - just like the actor Tate Donovan or the Michigan quarterback "Tate Forcier!" It also was the name of a great movie "Little Man Tate" about a very smart boy... Jodie Foster played his mom. My son Tate actually ended up being a genius too - he gets straight A-pluses in school. In short, "Tate is great!" (or that's what his 2nd grade teacher always used to say!) We have only met maybe 2 or 3 other guys named Tate... and the only drawback is we could never get him anything with his name on it - like a bicycle license plate or pencils!! Well... that is, not until we ended up going to the "Tate Modern" art museum in London. Then we bought him about a million things with his name on it!!! LOL!

My sons name is Tate Ryan. He was born in 2004. I too wanted to give him a name that was original. Not too many people have the name. Maybe a last name, but not many with Tate for the first. His name means, "cheerful", and that's exactly his personality.

I named my 5 month old son Tate and everyone we know has complimented us on what a lovely yet unique name it is. We know noone else of this name'so I think that although he will grow up with an unusual first name it will not be as fat out as say 'Apple' or 'Trixybell'
