Turner is a name that's both preppy and painterly, recalling the exquisite watercolor seascapes of British painter J. M. W. An occupational name in the Taylor-Carter mold, Turner is a more distinctive choice than many of the usual suspects.

One first-name Turner namesake is Turner Catledge, the first Executive Editor of the New York Times, but for the most part its more notable bearers were surnamed Turner: Nat, the leader of a slave rebellion and subject of a William Styron novel, media mogul Ted, musicians Ike and Tina, and glamour girl Lana. In the movie "Turner & Hooch," Tom Hanks was Det. Scott Turner and Hooch was the dog.
