Our son’s name is Bowie, but not after the singer. Not after anyone in fact. We loved the name the first time we heard it and it was the one that stuck with us throughout our pregnancy…the one we called him before we knew it was a him. But then David Bowie died and we knew what everyone would think. But still, it was the name. We get asked on the regular if we are big David Bowie fans. We are fans, but not name your child after singer kind of fans, ya know? We wanted something unique — and by the looks of the following list, we aren’t the only ones. Did your baby name make the list?
