Gender: Male Origin of Shooter: Word name

The name Shooter is a boy's name of English origin. Shooter and is often added to lists like Badass Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Picky Parents BNG".

From the experts:

Previously known only as the nickname of Waylon "Shooter" Jennings, Jr., who's married to Sopranos star Drea DeMatteo, the violent Shooter recently became a proper name when painter Julian Schnabel used it for his newborn son with gallerist May Andersen: The little boy is named Shooter Sandhed Julian Schnabel, Jr. Does this mean that Schnabel's own first name is really Shooter? We're not buying that and see Shooter as a too-cool addition to such trendy badass baby names as Breaker and Rebel
