Also Buster Merryfield from Only Fools and Horses, who played the grandfather. His real name was Harry, so Buster would have been a nickname.

I think it is a mistake to say this name comes from one who breaks things. It is my understanding it is derived from a child’s mispronunciation of the word, “brother.” So it is therefore similar to other nicknames like “Sissy” or “Bubba.“

Chris Wolstenholme's (Bassist) youngest son is called Buster. I don't know if it's his real name or a nickname, though.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Buster Brown! Buster Brown was a very popular comic strip character of the 1900s. He is a very mischievous little boy who is always making resolutions to be good that he never keeps.

Though silent film comedian Buster Keaton was a famous bearer, his real name was Joseph Frank Keaton. Supposedly, he got his nickname and later stage name from Harry Houdini when he was a child. This name isn't good for an actual name, and sounds more like the name of dog.

Buster is the name of the crash-test dummy on Mythbusters. The reason for the name is obvious.

Sounds like a good name for a dog or a rabbit (the latter probably due to Buster Bunny), but it sounds ridiculous on a person. It makes me think of thugs.

An immature, silly name that shouldn't even be used as a nickname. How could a man named Buster be taken seriously?

It's okay for a nickname, not a real name.

My furry white cat is named Buster. I would hate this name for a human, but it is an okay name for a male pet.
