"crooked nose"

Cameron Origin and Meaning

The name Cameron is both a boy's name and a girl's name of Scottish origin meaning "crooked nose".
Cameron Diaz almost single-handedly transported this sophisticated Scottish male surname into the girls' camp, where it has had a rapid rise to popularity -- though it's never caught up with the boys. Another actress, Camryn Manheim (born Debra), did the same thing for the phonetic spelling.

Cameron entered the girls' list in 1980, reaching as high as Number 176 in 1990, though it is now slipping. Still surprisingly common, given its less than desirable meaning.
