  1. We chose this name because of the meaning of True and Loyal man. We also liked the nickname Tru.

  2. My husband named our baby after his dad babies grandfather.

  3. My husband chose the name. It reminds me of the movie “The Truman Show” and Truman in that show had a great personality. It also sounds like “true-man” which calls to mind integrity. Finally it has an old- fashioned feel because it calls to mind president Truman. Some people have commented it is a name for someone who does big things, like a president. Other people love it or don’t ? like any other name. We hope he will like having something unique yet easy to pronounce and spell.

  4. We loved Truman because it’s classic without being popular. We also think it will grow well with him throughout his life.
