I don't have kids yet, but I do have a character in my book named Carter - even though she's a girl.

My husband and I are expecting and we are going to name our little boy Carter Cash. It just popped into my head one day and I realized that it was two of my husband and I's favorite older country artists. Hopefully this is a sign he'll be a music legend!

We named our son Carter Anthony and his grandmother said it sounds like music! We love it because Carter isn't all that common a name, yet not unheard of either. :)

Back in 1999 Carter was not a popular name at. I named my son Carter Dean. Not fond of the meaning (cart driver) but he was named after someone (2 someones actually) very special to my family

We named our son Carter Page in early 1999 after a family member who fought in the revolutionary war. We know no one else named Carter and the name is very fitting for him.
