  1. My mother picked the name for my baby and I promised her on her death bed that I would name my baby what she really wanted . She died in 2018 from a heart attack and pneumonia.

  2. only name we could agree on and it isn’t super common

  3. Just a cool, calm name

  4. I just fell in love with the name

  5. Me and my significant other couldn’t agree on a name .. I wanted something unique but not crazy and nothing super common. He came up within a Cameron and I wanted Malcolm.. He won and I fell in love with the name.

  6. We were driving through a town called Cameron. I told my husband what he thought about the name Cameron. He liked it also, we picked out that name before we even knew if baby was a boy. I think Cameron is a good name for a boy or girl.
