Hampden, Hampten


ParanoidAndroid Says:


I predict that Hampton, like other surname-turned names Hudson, Braxton, and Beckham, will make a resurgence in the next few years. Hampton has been slowly recovering from its nadir in the early 70s and now is gaining more traction. Hampton reminds me of obscure silent-film director Hampton Del Ruth and 40s jazz vibraphonist Lionel Hampton. The whole "Ham" suffix doesn't ring well with me though.
