That’s not a name it’s an object. And like PP said, an anchor weighs you down or holds you back. Why would you put that on your kid?

I love nature/outdoorsy names… but I just can’t get on board with Anchor. 

Like Pp mentioned, What about Archer? Similar sound.

Anchor is a horrible to give someone one.  

There is many beauitful outdoorsy names out there.   There is an Australian media personality that named his daughter Sailor.

Anchor is a euphemism for w*nker (at least where I live) – eg “that guy was a right anchor…”. I wouldn’t pick it as a name! There are some nice suggestions from pp.

As far as outdoorsy names go (since Anchor is out, and for good reason), I like Reed, Kai, Rowan, Drake, Wade, Stone, Flint, Storm, Hunter, Parker, Cliff, Vale, Cedar, Reef, Hart, Tanner, Sawyer, Gale, Ford, Alder, Heath… etc.

ChasingZenith :  

Stone? You’d  call a child Stone?  lol.  Or Cedar or Reef?  I just can’t come at these sorts of inanimate objects for names . Thank god OP has ‘dropped Anchor’ ……

Sorry. Each to her own,  of course .

Got to ask why everyone wants to name their kids trendy names today. Setting them up for a life of bullying and unemployment!

my sister called her cat Arlo. Apparently sister in law was annoyed as that’s what she planned on calling her baby. Seriously 😂

elderbee :  Woooow, storming in here a month after the original post to pass judgment on the world.  Good for you.  Would I personally name my child a “nature name”?  No.  I prefer more traditional names, but that’s not what the OP was asking, and it’s not as though names outside of tradition are worthless/can’t be cute.  I have a friend whose son’s name is Stone, and it’s actually really catchy, since the first and last name both begin with S’s.  I also grew up with a guy named Storm, and his personality was so fun that he created a positive name association for me.
