- Comments and insights on the name Keaton: | Edit
My 2 year old son is called Keaton live in the uk think it's a cool name to call your child and suits most surnames
My youngest is Keaton (born 2011), it was one of the only boys name we agreed upon! We stumbled upon it in the Baby Name Wizard book and instantly knew that this would be it! Keaton James, ironically we came across a school-aged boy with the exact same first and middle name before our Keaton was born. There is no shortage of nicknames; Keats, Key, Keat, Keaters, Keatie, he's called any number of names! We have received many compliments on his name, and it suits our little guy perfectly. Personally, I think the nickname Keats has a very literary sound to it-and as an aspiring writer, I am quite in love with it!
