Wyatt has been hot, which is to say cool, for several years now. With its easy Wyatt Earpish cowboy charm, it's relaxed but still highly respectable.
Wyatt got one of it first modern pushes when Peter Fonda played a Wyatt in the seminal film "Easy Rider. Now, at Number 39, it is the highest it has ever been in this country. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell were among the first celebs to use Wyatt for their son born in 1986; more recently, singer Sheryl Crow chose it for her baby boy.
And even more recently, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher used the name for their baby daughter, perhaps pushing the name across the gender line, though it has a long way to go before it's considered unisex: Last year, just 63 baby girls in the US were named Wyatt, vs. nearly 10,000 boys! Does the baby name world have Wyette in its future?
Wyatt is also enjoying a wave of current popularity in Canada.
