We are naming our baby boy Baker. I am an equestrian, and Baker is a popular name in the horse world. I have grown up loving the name Baker. When we were brainstorming names for our boy, I had it on my list. My husband immediately loved the name. He is a football fan, and liked Baker Mayfield. We like the "occupational" type names. We also wanted a simple name that was easy to spell, but also relatively unique. We just love the name Baker and think its perfect for our little guy, arriving soon! I think its a great name that will be appropriate as he grows up.
