Thread: Way to honor a David?
October 22nd, 2013 08:12 PM #6
I love the idea of Dawson to honor a David. I'm not sure what Dawson's Creek is, so obviously I don't think it's tainted the name.
Side note: Holy cow! I just looked at the stats for Dawson and it jumped from #734 in 1997 to #175 in 1998. I had no idea Titanic had that effect on the name?? Dawson's popularity is currently on the decline though. I can't believe I've never met anyone named Dawson.Emily, 19, Southeastern US.

@Southernmaple... thanks I love Dawson as well.
Dawson's Creek was a popular series on the WB around the time of Gilmore Girls etc... It was a popular teenage drama.
I agree with you on the drastic rise in popularity which shocked me as well, but I think it was a combination of Titanic and Dawsons Creek as that show premiered in 1998. I've never met anyone named Dawson either, but it is a bit popular for my liking. I still love it though

I like Davin. Dawson is a good idea too.
In terms of honoring your father, maybe you could do it in a more subtle way - think of something he liked, something you associate with him. If he liked music, hunting, sports, whatever - maybe you can come up with a name that calls him to mind for you, but won't set off alarm bells to the rest of your family. Same with your professor - maybe there's a name connected with the class he taught you?
