This name was transposed from the word for a church officer to a baby name when Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe chose it for their son, after a baseball player ancestor, and Don Johnson followed suit. Its popularity is continuing to rise, likely due to Nashville character Deacon Claybourne, reaching Number 421 in 2014.
