Cameron is a popular Scottish name, for both boys and now girls (thanks to Cameron Diaz). With its good-looking, sensitive aura, Cameron has also generated a deluge of variant spellings.
And please don't be put off by its literal meaning, which probably originated as a nickname for an early member of the clan.
Cameron Diaz almost single-handedly transported this sophisticated Scottish male surname into the girls' camp, where it has had a rapid rise to popularity -- though it's never caught up with the boys. Another actress, Camryn Manheim, did the same thing for the phonetic, more feminine spelling.
Cameron entered the girls' list in 1980, reaching as high as Number 176 in 1990,though it is now slightly slipping.
