  • Ranger is a character in Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum mysteries. As a romantic bad boy character, I don't have a problem with it. For a real person? Please don't, it's cheesy.

  • Never heard of a person with this name.
    first thought - sounds like a dog's name, not the name of a person.

    Sorry if that sounds mean! I'm just being honest :)

  • Yeah. In Talladega Nights, the kids were "Walker" and "Texas Ranger". That movie was so stupid.

  • I've heard it before but can't remember where...? I think it was a middle name though. It makes me think of Ranger Rick, a name for a dog and just a bad cheesy name for a child. I'm sorry. I'm not trying to be rude but it sounds as if you're trying a bit too hard. :/

  • Never heard it used as a given name before. I probably wouldn't do it myself, but would like it for someone else's kid. It is reminiscent of long history of occupational names: Hunter, Taylor, etc. and to me it would call to mind someone who is rugged and outdoorsy and helpful.
