    • Origin:

      Word name
    • Description:

      Doctor is an honorific used as a name, somewhat like names such as Bishop, King, and Princess. Banned in New Zealand, Doctor can lead to the kind of confusion you may feel would be only positive for your child -- a bona fide Doctor before he even gets to kindergarten. At its zenith in 1884, Doctor was used for 12 boys, but last year it didn't even clear the five-baby minimum to make it onto the Social Security extended list.

    • Description:

      Occupational names are hot right now, and Doctor has recently reemerged as an option. It's also an honorific name, a la Bishop, King, and Princess. It's never been popular for boys or girls—Doctor peaked in 1884 after being given to 12 boys—but it received a lot of attention after being banned in New Zealand.
