Perhaps you were at Klyde Warren Park. Or the Arboretum. Or a restaurant, like Hat Creek. And you heard the name of your hometown being hollered across the lawn. Is this about me? Does someone recognize me from high school? And then you see the kid. The kid responding “what, mom?” It’s happened again. You’ve seen another case of a kid named for a Texas town! They’re all over DFW. And they can rep any hometown. Which is why we now present the top 17 kid names inspired by Dallas-area towns.
By the way, if you’re looking for Lucas, Celeste, Lillian, Aubrey, Anna, or Melissa, they’re not here because whether it’s true or not, they sound more “people names that inspired Texas town names” than the other way around. But don't assume the parents weren't inspired by a sign off the highway. Ready for a little road trip? Here we go!
Ah, sweet little Addison. Like the spot that inspired her, she's gotten a lot cooler than she used to be, and she's really into food. Unlike the town, the food is mostly Goldfish and fruit snacks.
This kid had a belt buckle on his diapers, and his face is recreated -- quite well! -- in tattoo form on his dad's thigh.
Yep, he's clever, like a coyote, though it usually manifests in mischief. So, like the coyote. Do not accept any packages from ACME.
Celina is number one in her dance class, even though they don't actually rank the dancers at her age. She just decided it.
Ever been at the State Fair, enjoying some funnel cake, and a kid walks by tugging a sheep on a rope? That's Forney.
You can find Cash reading Mo Willems at The Wild Detectives, wearing an Old 97's shirt and Honest Company diapers. He has a better haircut than you.
Don't assume you know anything about little Rowlett. He brews his own tea and his favorite show is The Good Fight.
Boyd, in about 4 years, you're gonna be QB whether you like it or not.
Whitt could do that thing where you slap your fingers on the top of a can of dip before he turned seven. He loves Big Red.
Brock is already wearing a Vineyard Vines Polo and a Patagonia vest. Can currently be found knocking over the younger kids at the Arboretum Children's Garden.
Parker is an Instagram influencer with over 12,000 followers, about 2000 for every year she's been alive. She exclusively wears yellow.
Ever since Cooper realized that his name meant barrelmaker, he's done everything he can to live up to his name. Go Cooper go!
Weston is so mean. Just the meanest, and everyone loves her.
Murphy is the most laid-back kid you'll ever meet. Catch him at the sandbox at The Lot, just pouring sand on his toes.
Despite what her name implies, Godley is a little hellion. She loves bottle rockets and steals gum from Dollar General. Banned from the Perot.
Garrett is several decades younger than you and still managed to whip you in Fortnite.
Merilee finished the DFW Scavenger Hunt in record time, and then went to give the other teams hints, and not even in a condescending way. Super cool kid.
