An increasing number of parents are giving their children a name with a violent undertone.
Danger, Rogue, Trigger and Arson are just some of the aggressive names that appeared in the top 1000 names on Nameberry.
Cannon or Bowman featured in the top 1000 names between 2014 and 2015.
The most popular was Gunner, with more than 1,500 boys given the name in the space of a year.
Also an increase in babies names after gun manufacturers, reports The Daily Mail.
Names like Barrett, Remington, Kimber, Ruger, Wesson and Browning are on the rise.
The name Sabre has risen in popularity for girls, as has the name Arrow.
In the US, the names Trigger, Shooter, Calibre, Beretta, Saw and Bowman have seen a spike, and are joined on the list by Arson, Danger, Rekker and Rogue.
Military titles as names are also worth noting, with Garrison, Major and General and increasingly popular choice for parents.
Very worrying trend. Can’t say I am a fan of any of these names.
