Parents appear to be arming their newborn babies with intimidating names in a tough-guy take on giving them the best start in life.
More children are being given names related to guns, knives, historical warriors, dark goddesses and macho movie stars, according to a survey by a US baby name website.
Danger, Arrow, Rebel, Pistol and Arson are, believe it or not, have also been used.
Most popular of all is Gunner, which was given to more than 1,500 babies in the US last year. According to baby name site Nameberry, if Gunnar (meaning “bold warrior” in Swedish) is taken with Gunner the name hits the top 200 for boys.
Cannon, meanwhile, is in the top 1,000.
