I'd hate to say it, but if the name "Lawyer" cracked the Top 1000 a few times (From 1880-1911), so can something like "Artist". I can honestly see Artist gaining some traction in the next few years. But does popularity in the Top 1000 itself extenuate the name's ridiculous existence? The answer is simply no. Occupational names such as Gardener, Lawyer, Judge, Woodman, Brewer, and Artist are remiss of any subtlety and identity. Don't do this to your kid.

It's got the Art/Artie nickname which is nice, but as a full name, it's kinda meh.
