  1. MY DAUGHTER GIVE BIRTH TO TWIN BOYS THEY WERE GOING TO CALL THEM EASTON AND WESTON THEY KEPT EASTON SCOTT AND BLAIZE WESTON WE LOVE THAT A LOT BETTER

  2. I came up with his name because I like to name my kids something that ain’t heard of alot an at the time he was born that name wasn’t very popular, but of course after I had him an named him that everyone else started naming their boys that.

  3. My husband and I loved the name!

  4. Had him in January. Hes my 4th son. Loved this name for a while. Of course I have an “E” named child, two “J” named children so I needed another “E” name lol.

  5. We are a family full of boys and all 3 of the bigs play baseball. Dad, mom and the biggest brother hunt. All the boys wanted a name that associates with all of them and hunting. So Easton baseball bats and Easton arrows. Best of both and we have one handsome little boy.

  6. My husband and I own a dance studio, and we didn’t want our child to have a name of any kid at our studio. Luckily having a boy made it slightly easier to do this. When we picked Easton, we basically went through a list of baby names and picked 3 names that we loved. Something that had a good ring to it with our last name and the two middle names we were deciding between. We also wanted something that sounded like a “stars” name. As we are sure our kid will grow up around the dance studio and someday dance. And potentially, like his daddy, become a professional dancer. Easton’s dad danced for a major ballet company out of high school.

  7. We wanted a name that was unique and that I have not run across yet being a teacher. We also wanted something with long vowel sound as my husband has two boys from previous with long vowel sounding names.

  8. I wanted something that was unique-ish without being made up. Easton isn’t as common as James or Michael but isn’t unheard of. Then since we’re a baseball/softball family & our older kids have used that brand of equipment for years, it was an easy choice.

  9. I have liked Easton forever. Long before I ever thought about pregnancy and kids. The name stuck with me. It’s not after baseball like most think but honestly I can’t tell you why or how I came across it several years ago.

  10. He laughs all the time

  11. I love that it’s not too country and not too city.

  12. I really liked the name

  13. I come from a family of “J” names, so when my husband and I were expecting and brainstorming we realized most of our favorite names started with “E”. My husband played baseball and when I mentioned I loved the name “Easton”, he immediately jumped on board.

  14. My husband and I have a really tough time with boy names. Out of LOTS and LOTS of boys names, Easton was the only one we could both agree on. It means river settlement. Which is really cool because our last name means river. It makes me think of Psalm 23…He leads me beside quiet waters.

  15. Honestly we just loved the name! It was simple and knowing him now it just fits him.
