10 – #Namemas Countdown: Parker

10parkerralphie

Welcome to #Namemas, a collaborative name celebration and Christmas Countdown.

On the 10th day of Namemas TulipbyAnyName gave to me the baby name Parker.

Ralphie Parker is the main character in the iconic film A Christmas Story.

While the name Ralphie may feel a bit dated, Parker is right on trend.  Parker peaked in popularity for both boys at Number 72 and girls at Number 227 last year.  Parker is a surname and an occupational name that was used to describe a park-keeper.  Celebrities Rosie O’Donnell and Clay Aiken each have sons named Parker. If you like the name Parker but you’re concerned about its rising popularity; you may also consider Porter or Palmer.

What do you think of the name Parker? Hear my thoughts below:
