I'm a country girl, I love the sound of the name Remington. It's very southern sound. But I dont like this association to guns. My best friend names her son Remington Charles. and it really does suit him.

Kelly Clarkson just had a little Remington and I think it's kinda cute that Remington means "place on a riverbank" and he has an older sister named River Rose, whether that was coincidental or not. :P
