- Personal experiences with the name Dalton: | Edit
very unique name. people are intrigued and usually want to have deeper discussion. being named dalton, its easy to say this. when i tell people my name, they're like "woah, never heard that before." and thats a good thing. with a name so rare, you gotta make sure you leave a mark so people dont forget the beautiful face that goes with the name. anybody thinking of a name for a new baby boy, i'd reccommend Dalton, highly. when i was growing up, nobody really made fun of my name. no insults that really go with it. my first boy will definitely be Dalton jr. hope this helped. good luck.
I'll start here as a different Dalton, instead of editing what the previous Dalton had written. I def agree with what he wrote. I have met several other Dalton's in recent years. As a matter of fact, there is another Dalton who works next door to our office. I, as far back as I have been able to go, am the 5th Dalton in a row in my family, and now have an 11 year old son named Dalton as well. He, coincidentally, has a friend that lives one block up named Dalton, and there is apparently even a third Dalton at his school. I have yet to run across anyone who can trace the name that far back in their family as I can. I do like my name, and people are in fact impressed when you introduce yourself. I often get referenced to "the Dalton gang", Patrick Swayze in Raodhouse, Timothy Dalton (James Bond), and Dalton, Georgia.
My best friends name is Dalton, and since that, if I have a son I will name him Dalton. Dalton is an extrodinary name for extordinary boys. People tend to say "Dalton" a lot more because nobody can get enough of that name. Everyone named Dalton is an amazing person because thats what Dalton's are. I recommend this popular name to everyone who is having a son or expecting one :)
I love the singer Dalton Rapattoni and his name is very unique I love it
Hello, my name is also Dalton and I would like to give some insight into what I believe to be the cause of the massive spike in babies named Dalton in the 90's. See, there was this smash box office hit by the name of Roadhouse that came out in 1989. In it, our hero is a tough guy bouncer who takes very little guff from anyone. His name? Dalton. Who is he portrayed by? None other than everyone's favorite tough guy, Patrick Swayze. I was born in 1998. As I understand it, my name was uncertain up until my parents were asked what I was being named at the hospital. My mom said immediately and for certain "Dalton." My mother was a great fan of both Roadhouse and Patrick Swayze. This leads me to believe that many women of the era were enamored both with Swayze's screen talent, as well as the name Dalton and what the character in the film represented.
Thank you for your time.
