Bowie

Gender: M Meaning of Bowie: "blond" Origin of Bowie: Scottish

Baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn put this name in play as a first name, but David Bowie (born with the considerably less marketable moniker of David Robert Jones) dyed it blond and gave it charisma. He changed his surname in 1965 to avoid confusion with the then popular Davy Jones of The Monkees. The name Bowie reputedly came about as a reference to the American hero of the Alamo, Jim Bowie.

Bowie successfully combines all these positive elements--Gaelic charm, a Western drawl and musical cred.
